Michael St. George
-- Dubbin' De Vibes Tour 2005 --
One of the world's leading Dub masters, Michael St. George follows the critical success of his previous albums, "Self Assession" and "Root 2 Fruit" with a fabulous new conscious album, "Dubbin' De Vibes" (Passin'Thru Records).
St. George inspires and uplifts audiences with perceptive lyrics and melodic sound fusing Reggae, Jazz, and Pop influences. He is a dynamic artist who has shared the stage with such icons as Oku Onuora, The Last Poets, Culture, Burning Spear, Lillian Allen, Luciano, Thomas Mapfumo, Mutabaruka, Mzwakhe Mbuli, Dennis Bovell and the International Dub Band, Toots and the Maytals, and Boukman Eksperyans. "Dubbin' De Vibes" was recorded in Britain, Canada, Jamaica, and the United States, giving the album an international flavour -- both in perspective and production. Produced at some of the finest reggae studios such as, Korner Stone and NV Room (Canada); Sting Ray UK); Row 1 Recording (US); Big Ship, Sonic Sound, and 321 Studio (Jamaica), this hour-long collection delivers a seamless mix of innovative verse and music.
"Dubbin' De Vibes" contains two original poems from St. George's debut book, "Night Spin". Published in 2001 by Blue Grama Press in Canada, "Night Spin" encapsulates St. George's unique literary style and his honest, passionate vision addressing local and international issues. Hit singles "Missing You" and "Caged In" have already established their place in the hearts of fans. In addition, the popular roots rockin' anthem, "See Us Through", featuring co-producer Benjy Myaz, identifies a global desire for greater spiritual guidance in life's journey.
