J.R. Blessington Spreads Hope With His Latest EP

J.R. Blessington’s latest promotional effort is a 12 track EP simply titled HOPE. Released on August 10, 2017, the songs are a compelling blend of roots rocking reggae music with a global flavour.

J.R. Blessington, who is currently based in Cleveland, Ohio is a Jamaican singer who got his start, playing drums and singing in church, and since he has moved on to create artful, conscious works. The HOPE EP is a follow up to his debut album Son of the Soil, which was released in 2014.

The EP was inspired by a desire to let mankind know that whatever challenges that you are faced with, there is always HOPE.
“With what’s going on in the world today, especially in the land of love Jamaica, this album has substance to feed our nation and help us to get back together in unity. People should endeavour to walk the streets showing their smiles, inciting hope.”

Some of the tracks featured on the EP include Help The Poor, Bright, Woman At Home, If Love and No Racial War. The sole acapella track on the EP, His Majesty, is evidence of the singer’s amazing talent and his ability to definitely hold his own with or without a backing track.

A music video for the first track on the EP, Bright, is expected to be released this month. The one drop beat along with the mellow vibe of the track is sure to keep any listener’s ears happy.
So far, the EP has been well received and has been getting plays across the world in places such as Africa, Hawaii, USA and of course, here in the Caribbean. Blessington said the overwhelming response was completely unexpected but at the same time he is elated.

“It’s not a typical roots album, the versatile, real-life, in-your-face truth comes across powerfully,” he explained.
The HOPE EP is available digitally on CD Baby, iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify.
