CEN’C LOVE BIO
Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Fashion Designer, Visual Artist, Cen’C Love is a 21st century renaissance woman.
With the sultry voice and soulful sounds of a Billie Holiday, the musicianship of Lauren Hill and the word wit of Jill Scott, Cen’C, the daughter of Reggae icon Bunny Wailer, continues the musical tradition of the illustrious “Wailers” family of Reggae.
Her debut album, LOVE LETTER,
on the Lyvestone Music label, is a musical journey through the myriad landscapes of Love.
Her message is poignant and inspiring in songs like PARADISE and HEY YOU, stripping away the fear of baring our souls to love, then consciously relative in songs such as CYSTEM, which describes the Babylon matrix control system and THESE LIES, about low self esteem and the resulting obsessions with materialism and artificial identities.
In addition to music, Cen’C embraces a natural holistic lifestyle through the practices of Yoga, Meditation, Qi-Gong and holistic nutrition. She is an environmentally conscious woman who intends to add Midwife to her list of abilities.
Cen’C has performed in Jamaica, Atlanta, St Croix, Los Angeles New York and Amsterdam. She appeared at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam 2008 and at the Reggae Awards in New York in the spring of 2009.
Since the launch of her album, LOVE LETTER, in February 2011, Cen’C, whose name means “the highest grade”, has been based in Kingston, Jamaica,
promoting her album. The first single, CASANOVA, peaked at #6 on the Reggae Singles Chart.
She has had numerous radio and television appearances including ‘The Entertainment Buzz’ on IRIE FM,
Smile Jamaica on TVJ, HYPE TV’s Video Countdown and A Fe We Choice Music Countdown. Her print media features include the Jamaican Gleaner, Star, Enquirer and High Times magazine. She is a favorite of internet radio shows, magazines and blogs.
Cen’C has been actively polishing her talents on local stages with performances at Spring Break, Negril Escape’s One Love Concert Series, Sumfest, and Capleton’s A St Mary Mi Come From. With her new band, Love Express, Cen’C has been playing her part in the recent resurgence of live Reggae shows around Jamaica at Jonkonoo Lounge’s Plug and Play, Redbones Cabaret Series, Breadbasket Poetry Festival at Taino Cove, Treasure Beach, Jamnesia and Wiki Wacky in Bull Bay and Isis’ Conscious Reggae Party Series.
She shuns tracks, preferring to perform acoustic sets with her brother Asadenaki on drums if her band is not accommodated. Cen’C’s most rewarding accomplishment to date, however, was becoming a new mother at the end of 2009.
With a new baby, a new attitude and a brand new song to share, Cen’c Love is ready to bring her infectious brand of Reggae Soul to your world.
