KINGSTON. Reggae Singer Hezron has launched his latest CD The Life I Live, Soulful Salvation.
A remake of the original hit that was first launched back in 2014, The Life I Live Soulful Salvation was released globally on all major digital stores on March 25.
Hezron himself was in Jamaica over the weekend, hosting a series of fun celebrations.
Hezron’s launch plans for his new CD will also include visits to South Carolina, Miami and Atlanta.
Born into a musical family in the Moy Hall district of Montego Bay, Hezron began singing as a child in the church choir, where his great vocal talent was first recognized. In his teen years he absorbed melodious pop hits by Madonna and Michael Jackson as well as the powerful messages in the music of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. The dancehall stars of the era, Shabba Ranks, Ninja Man and Bounty Killer were also great influences and Hezron worked with local sound systems to perfect his own tough-edged toasting style.
Reggae fans in Jamaica and beyond were introduced to Hezron’s spectacular, nuanced vocals and poetic lyrics with the 2008 release of his first number one single So In Love, produced by veteran hit maker Bobby Digital. More hits followed: the melodic lovers rock tunes Forever and Always and Can’t Come Between earned Hezron unwavering adoration among his female fans while the poignant depictions of poverty, violence and other grim realities on Land of The Warriors, Inna De Ghetto and the acoustic Can’t Tek De Pressure brought respect from his industry peers.
The aforementioned songs featured on The Life I Live(d) established Hezron as one of the finest singer/songwriters of his generation. Hezron’s evocative lyrics and warm captivating vocals have garnered widespread acclaim over the years, prompting many reggae fans to wonder why he has not yet attained household name status.
