Kalia-Shea has plans to stay in music “All Di While”
Kingston, Jamaica; Newcomer to the local entertainment landscape, Kalia-Shea, is making steps to remain in the music business “All Di While”. The self written one drop reggae melody is Kalia-Shea’s first single, produced by Trevor 'Skatta' Bonnick of the group Inner Circle and Donovan 'Benji' Belnavis of Ruff Cut Band – released on August 25, 2017.
According to the petite, outspoken 25 year old, she brings an air of trendy eccentricity to the reggae industry.
“People may look at my looks and want to put me in a box. Well, all I can say is, don’t expect to see Kalia-Shea in only long skirts and dashikis. I may wear locks and follow Rastafarian traditions, however I embrace my sexuality - but with class. I am here to remind other young black women that our skin colour is beautiful and more of us need to carry ourselves with respect and confidence because we are powerful beings,” says Kalia-Shea.
The model turned singjay hails from Spanish Town, Jamaica and is a firm believer in the benefits of cannabis.
“Almost all the songs I have written so far makes reference to hemp. I believe the plant is one of the best natural medicinal sources for mankind. It has been condemned for way too long and is very underused; and I am unapologetic about promoting its use through my music,” shares the unconventional entertainer.
A music video is expected for the debut single in the coming weeks. The singer is excited about the project, as she
produced and assisted with the direction of the visuals which features Everaldo “Evie” Creary from the group No-Maddz as her love interest in the video.
“The video was shot in a fresh, natural mountain vibe in a log cabin with Kingston in the backdrop. I tried to keep the storyline relatable to the lyrics of the song. It shows a queen expressing her love for her king man. There is a super fun performance shot in the middle of the road in the hills where I wear a beautiful orange outfit with a trail; and we added a fun dream sequence too – just to keep it as creative as possible,” she explains.
Shea’s signature orange ensemble in the video was designed by Amelia Morgandy; while the video was directed by Krusha and edited by Rila. Other artistic contributions to the production were made by Esther Beckford; makeup artist Alice Francis; Siwatu Jewellery and Victoria Silvera’s Touch by VLS one of a kind tea cups and pots.
Kalia-Shea is working with other popular local producers to grow her musical catalogue and to position herself as an indomitable reggae act with a blend of pop and dancehall. Shea is already making waves and building connections in music. She is booked to perform on the annual Holiday Give Back stage show in St Elizabeth on Saturday, December 16 with Richie Spice, JahDore, Iyara and Dre Tosh; along with other appearances in the coming weeks.
“All Di While” is available online via major music streaming platforms.
