The Dada Son Entertainment recording artist will be in New York on Saturday May 19th for an exclusive in store album signing at the VP Records Retail store in Jamaica, Queen’s.
The album, which was released on Tuesday April 24th, 2012, has received critical acclaim from the Reggae Fraternity and fans as far away as Gambia, Africa, to as close as Atlanta, Georgia. Due to the impact of the lead single “Life Too Short,” Gramps felt it was necessary to connect with fans on a more personal level, hence spending a day with them in stores.
“I have always had a close relationship with my fans, which is why I’m eager to hit the road to meet them, talk to them and sign their copies of Reggae Music Lives. Seeing them at the record stores means a lot – it’s one of the best parts of my job!”
Gramps heads to the VP Records Retail store in Miramar, Florida on Friday June 1st for more one on one interaction with fans. Encouraging fans to purchase the incredible album, critics have said “this album takes listeners on a deeper journey of getting to know Gramps, and at the same time, receiving good wholesome music they can find joy in day to day!”
Reggae Music Lives is an evolution of Gramps' professional and musical growth expressed through his singing, narratives, arrangements and compositions. His melodies and hooks are seasoned with mature, worldly lyrics that are delivered flawlessly. All of his experiences have culminated in the creation of a universal sound that he says stems from exposure.
Angelic harmonies, authentic compositions and a unique sound brand, Gramps calls "Rockaz," Reggae Music Lives is more than Reggae, it's world-beat, with a little bit of country, a taste of what Americans call rap-Jamaicans call it toasting; mix it with a hint of r 'n' b, a dash of blues synthesized with contemporary reggae that maintains the integrity of the original art form and you get a sense of the musical accents that help to make Reggae Music Lives complete.
Reggae Music Lives is about the preservation of art, music and culture and Gramps wants the world to know that "Reggae music is here to stay."
