February 15, 2013 -- Kingston, Jamaica When was the last time you listened to a track and be inspired? Or watched a video and got goose pimples? Have you ever heard or read the lyrics to a Dancehall Artist's song that gave you or renewed your faith? If you're lost for words at these questions, then obviously you haven't been introduced to Bugle's recent single "Don't Give Up" which was released in September 2012.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you must know the type of artist that is Bugle. He resonates hope in all his lyrics, speaks truth and inspire Jamaicans, and music lovers in general, with words of encouragement no matter your situation. Ever since his emergence into the Dancehall scene, Bugle has always been an artist who set himself apart from the norm, avoiding the usual obscenities and vulgarities of this genre of music. He has always been the forerunner of the label Daseca Productions, with hits after hits of uplifting lyrics.
Evidence of his lyrical prestige can be seen in hits like "What I'm Gonna Do" which topped charts all over the world in 2007. Bugle has even written songs for Elephant Man and has guest appeared on the popular US music video show 106th And Park and the BET Awards Show on the BET network. Many of his fellow artists have much admiration for his works and have been featured on several tracks with him, including Taurus Riley, Ding Dong, Chevaughn, Razz & Biggy and label mate Serani. In 2012, he also joined forces with the exceptional talent of the Bahamian Hip-Hop duo Bahama Boyz on a track called "Overcome", retaining and never straying from his usual message of hope. Bugle has extended his acclaim to various countries by touring in Asia, North America, Europe and the rest of the Caribbean. He has also shared his talent with other record labels such as ZJ Chrome's Cr203 Productions, TJ Records, Chimney Records, Frass Records and Notice Productions.
In 2012, Bugle released a mixtape titled "Psalms" full of explosive, socially conscious lyrical content that includes collaborations with Etana, Ding Dong, Jahmiel, Proppa Fade, Vybrant, Dillinger, Oriel and Blak Diamond. Now, at the start of 2013, Bugle is focusing his promotional efforts on the single "Don't Give Up" which was produced by Jahvy for the Tru Ambassador Music label. It is an inspiring track that has so far touched many lives due to its lyrical content. In it, he sings, "Just don't give up, although the struggles hard. And when you play the game and come first without reward...just hold on to your faith and climb." The video was released in November 2012 and directed by Jerome Hyde Film for Unplugged Multimedia and produced by Major Links Productions. It is just as inspirational as the track and portrays the message clearly with scenes of people who have found themselves in certain dire situations where they thought all hope was gone but Bugle sends pieces of paper flying through the skies and across the world with a short and simple phrase "Failure is a state of mind" which was obviously powerful enough to allow it to dawn on them to get up and out of whatever hole they've found themselves in.
Bugle is still managed by Daseca in association with Major Links Entertainment based in the United States. He recently teamed up with promotions company Plushh Promotions with Kim Thomas from New York and Lesley Hayles from Jamaica who are handling most of his publicity. Bugle is currently in studio working on an album while putting out good music that is essentially uplifting, which he insists on doing as this is what listeners need to hear. Bugle always maintains the integrity of his lyrics and will always stand for what he believes in; that is, to use music to uplift the soul.
He is very hardworking and stays busy in the studio, working with Sly & Robbie on their Taxi label, on this highly anticipated album set to be released in the summer of 2013. Critics are already raving that this album will be a smash hit and a classic for ages to come. Bugle is set to perform in Nassau, Bahamas on March 16th at Club Charlies, where he will be performing on stage with the Bahama Boyz for the first time.
