Hitting the airwaves immediately upon its August 31st 2018 release, Gia Yee describes her new album as a cultural roots reggae fusion mix.
Delivered in her smooth signature style. “I
stay true to the roots of reggae, and infuse some touches of ska beats
and dancehall riddims, a little classic funk and vinyl, some R&B,
and just a hint of EDM – to keep things interesting and fresh”, she
The new songs include roots reggae, conscious-raising tracks “GASLIT”, “BOTH FEET”, “ERASED”, and “ANYTHING”; two renditions of a Ska influenced song called “NOTE TO SELF”; an upbeat funk infused cultural blending song called “YO RASTA”; a Dancehall and EDM influenced tune entitled “MY AVATAR”; a smooth lovers rock track called “ISLAND NIGHTS”; and the ballad of “RASTA JACK”, which was intentioned to illustrate what true love is like in its most simplistic form.
Thrilled about it’s release and it’s great reception, she’s aiming to connect globally in a meaningful way. “I chose my words carefully and try to offer a positive outlook, even if the subject matter happens to be a challenging or emotional one” Says Gia, and continues, “ Music is a powerful force, so I try to stay reverent to that fact, and ultimately offer a positive message and vibe”. Extremely grateful for how everything fell into place, Gia expresses feeling truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with so many of the top musicians and producers in Jamaica while producing her new album - which was a big milestone for this new female reggae artist.
The title of her new album, REGGAE PRESCRIPTION, pretty much says it all, as it entertains, soothes, and uplifts the soul with its original reggae tracks. “I chose the title REGGAE PRESCRIPTION for my new album” says Gia, “as I felt it chronicled, and was representative of my transformational experience - I believe that music has the power to heal, and often say that ‘writing music is my therapy, and reggae music is my refuge’ – so REGGAE PRESCRIPTION - just sounded right”
Busy at work getting her music out, connecting with radio show hosts, media, fans and supporters, the new reggae fusion artist, plans to start gearing up for future performances.
Looking forward to an upcoming performance in Jamaica, at the Reggae Village, located at the Trelawny Stadium in Falmouth, and planning for a 2019 summer European Festival Tour, Gia expects to stay busy until she returns to the recording studios again in the near future.
