Album Notes
My Jamaica was written by Jimmy Roland in the late 90's after making an exit from a bad relationship. He was motivated to write these lyrics because of issues that went on in the relationship. After coming up with the words (feelings from his heart) to the song, he began humming a tune. It was a tune that could very well have been the chorus to the song but Jimmy thought that the tune was too simple. He got on the piano and began playing around with a melody that he thought had a very catchy "hook". Jimmy then remembered that a lot of hit songs have hooks that are very simple but memorable and very catchy. He found himself humming "My Oh My Jamaica" every day. He decided to go with that "hook". He began to feel very comfortable about the song and asked the independent record label that he was signed to at the time if they would approve including it on his upcoming Cd release "Songs from...Under The Moonlight". At first they had reservations about including the song as they thought it was too simple as well but, Jimmy fought for it. It was indeed included and became one of the most popular tracks on the Cd. Many fans have told Jimmy that they could relate to the song's lyrics as they also have had a "Jamaica" (a fictitious name Jimmy used to protect the guilty)in their lives.

Jimmy has a musician/producer/DJ friend in Toulon, France known as DJ Felly. Felly loved Jimmy's vocals and the hook to the song. He told Jimmy that he would like to do a dance remix of the song. Jimmy agreed that would be a great idea and gave the go-ahead. The result is the Extended remixed version of "My Jamaica" which is rapidly rising in popularity across the world. Felly calls the mix an Afro-Deep-House/Dance Remix. The deep bass will certainly have you moving across the dance floor. This disc was released in May, 2007 and contains three tracks including the original radio mix from the "Songs from...Under The Moonlight" Cd and an instrumental of the extended remix. With memorial Day weekend and those summer parties approaching, you'll want this Cd for your next bash!
