“Sweet grooving tracks with fluid lead guitar, tasty horns, angelic background harmonies and alternating male and female lead vocals add depth and give resonance to Soul Majestic’s latest release Better World. The lyrics address social issues, hard living and triumphant life. This is reggae music to carry you through the rough times into the natural sunlight. Dub, roots, rockers and other elements combine to make a statement that looks harsh reality in the eye and comes up soulful and majestic.”
Soul Majestic’s third and highly anticipated album will be released in June 2009, featuring 13 diverse tracks including collaborations with Sly and Robbie, Tony Moses and Trinidad’s Queen Omega, as well as production and a handful of rhythms by Million 7 Sound. A maturation of their original sound, Soul Majestic’s latest effort breaks down genre barriers allowing an explosion of creativity. Each track stands alone and the musicianship showcases Soul Majestic’s agility and varying influences from Roots to Hip Hop to R&B. With obsessive attention to detail, the production relays a classic quality while also demonstrating a modern, edgy feel that will integrate seamlessly into clubs and DJ playlists.
Better World is an authentic creation from start to finish emphasizing sincerity and a window into the band’s values and life experiences. Songs like I Rise, chronicling singer Oriana’s defeat over cancer, Rough n’ Tough, a warning to young musicians about the pitfalls of the music industry, and Tonight, a passionate lover’s groove, all speak to the ups and downs of life.
Soul Majestic’s mission is to raise awareness of global interconnectedness, and show how people’s actions impact one another and the earth. With that intention, they have created a truly uplifting album with the finger on the pulse of people simply looking to make a better world.
