Following Memorable Performances at Best of the Best & Palm Beach Jerk Festival, Morgan Heritage Announces "Strictly Roots" Journey to Europe
Following memorable and successful performances at Best of the Best, one of the largest International Music Festivals in North America and the popular Palm Beach Jerk & Caribbean Culture Festival 2015, CTBC Music Group announces Morgan Heritage "Strictly Roots" promotional journey to celebrate the European release of their forthcoming album, ‘Strictly Roots’.
Humbled and proud that "Strictly Roots" album reached no. 1 on the US iTunes Reggae Chart and Billboard, CTBC Music Group will be hosting several listening parties where the royal family of reggae, Morgan Heritage will give fans an unprecedented opportunity to answer any questions. The band have confirmed dates in France,Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Finland and Italy, spanning from 30th May through to June 21st.
The children of legendary Denroy Morgan, siblings Peetah Morgan (vocals), Una Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Gramps Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Lukes Morgan (rhythm guitar) and Mr. Mojo Morgan (percussion/vocals), are undoubtedly one of contemporary reggae’s most powerful forces on the global stage. The group have also celebrated their musical heritage with collaborations with third generation ambassadors from the Morgan and Marley families, Jemere Morgan and Jo Mersa Marley.
‘Strictly Roots’ features a wide variety of guest performers, including platinum-selling dancehall phenomenon Shaggy, American reggae and R&B vocalist J Boog, Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, Bobby Lee of Grammy-nominated SOJA and fresh Jamaican reggae sensation, Chronixx.
The group have also called upon the expertise of BBC Radio 1/BBC 1Xtra’s Seani B, who co-produced the compelling lead single, ‘Perform and Done’. The single itself has already received considerable
attention across US radio, and has even been spotlighted by Billboard, while album track ‘So Amazing’ recently debuted on Yahoo.
Having established themselves as the premiere live act on the reggae circuit, their passionate desire to make their already rich musical legacy even more impactful is clearly one that inspires. Eric Rachmany says: “It’s an honor to collaborate with Morgan Heritage. In my eyes they are one of the best reggae bands of all time”.
Morgan Heritage also look forward to bringing their incredible live performances to Europe later on in the year, whilst the full LP is perfectly set for a scorching summer release of June 5th for Germany release and June 8th for rest of Europe/ UK.
