Captivating and Edgy Reggae

Morgan Heritage – Avrakedabra (CTBC Music Group, 2017)

Modern reggae masters Morgan Heritage continue to dazzle the listener with its irresistible rhythms and masterfully-constructed vocals and harmonies. The award-winning group is at its best when it focuses on roots reggae, adding the admirable vocal mix that characterizes their sound: outstanding lead vocals, equally good backing harmonies, call and response, and edgy Mr. Talk Box electronic vocals.

As a crossover band, Morgan Heritage also features radio-friendly pop, R&B and rock influences that help the band reach larger audiences.

Guests include Kabaka Pyramid, Dre Island, and Stephen and Ziggy Marley.

Strictly Roots, Even Better Now

Morgan Heritage – Strictly Roots Deluxe Edition (CTBC Music Group, 2016)

It’s no wonder Strictly Roots Deluxe Edition won the Grammy for best reggae album. It’s a superb example of first class roots reggae. Strictly Roots Deluxe Edition is a 2-CD collection beefed up with additional bonus tracks and remixes.

On Strictly Roots Deluxe Edition, Morgan Heritage plays the best reggae you can find, incorporating some elements of soul (like Bob Marley did), dancehall, and also opens the doors to less expected sounds like Celtic rock and electronic dance music.

This a totally indie effort. Morgan Heritage released Strictly Roots on their own label, CTBC Music Group (“Cool to be Conscious”). Morgan Heritage invited Jo Mersa Marley (son of Stephen Marley and grandson of Bob Marley) as well as other acclaimed artists such as Shaggy, J Boog, Flogging Molly, Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, Bobby Lee of Soja, Chronixx, Jemere Morgan and Gil Sharone.

 

 

Strictly Roots Deluxe Edition is roots reggae at its finest, full of instant classics.
