Wayne Marshall says, Life-changing experience produces 'Tru Colors'


The new album may have taken an entire decade and maybe because of it, Wayne Marshall's Tru Colors shows his growth in music.


On Tuesday, Marshall released Tru Colors, more than 10 years after his previous album, Marshall Law, in 2003. That first effort featured popular songs like Marshall Town and Overcome.

"As the name suggests, the project represents my true colours and what I have experienced in music. It shows my evolution, my growth," Marshall told The Gleaner.

"I feel great. I feel very proud about the final product, which is a good representation of the work that we put in ... great project, exclusive tracks."

exclusive tracks

With the exception of singles like Stupid Money, I Know, and Go Hard, which were released earlier, Marshall said between 70 and 80 per cent of the tracks are exclusive.

"I promised myself that I wanted to work on a project so fans could see the worth of buying it. It is a project that I can really encourage people to buy," Marshall said.

He described Marshall Law as songs that were "kinda squeezed together and put out as an album". Tru Colors, on the other hand, shows "real strategy, real work", he said.

Marshall continued: "The main difference is the growth in content and melody. We planned all of the songs. It's all that we wanted it to be. Everything that's there was written with the focus of being on the album."

Marshall also lauded Damian and Stephen Marley of Ghetto Youths International for their work on the album.

With the former taking the reins of executive producer for the album, completion took about two and a half years.

road to perfection

"Damian is an in-demand touring artiste, so we had to do the album around his touring obligations. That kinda helped the project 'cause we took the time to perfect it," Marshall told The Gleaner, noting that additional production work was done by Pay Day Music and Baby G.

In addition to the lessons he learnt from working with the Marleys, he said working on the album "was a life changing experience".

Having waited 10 years to put out a second album, Marshall wants this album to cement him "as a force in the reggae and dancehall game".

"Now is my time to kind of put my part, to pave the way for the young generation," said Marshall.
