Small Town Boy is the new single of the talented reggae singer Timmi Burrell. This single is a preview of what to expect from the upcoming album A Small Town Boy Story and will include 14 reggae tunes.
The single speaks to the everyday struggles faced by people from poorer backgrounds but reassures us in the chorus that "Jah is a Friend when I'm in need, Jah is always there for me" delivered over a scintillating horn section.
Timmi says: "I'm sure the people will love this tune because everyone can relate to the message and if you like the single you will love the album because every song has a powerful message, whether its about love, relationships, social struggles and more, there is a tune for everyone". This song will definitely give people an idea of the direction the album is going in and also what kind of vibe and overall energy to expect from the album. This album will be Timmi's first and has been a long time coming. Timmi says: Over the years a lot of doors have been closed but my love for music kept me going. I have been busy since the start of 2013 working to put together a set of songs that i can be proud of, that people can look back and say that was great Reggae album. All the songs have been recorded so its now just a matter of mixing and mastering to get that sound that we know the people will love.
The album is being produced by Mac and Tmar of MacLes Music Factory and New Sound Records, who have produced a number of songs for Timmi in the past.
The album will be Reggae at its core with Timmi delivering each song with the emotion that the riddims require of him. This album will be a treat for Reggae and just overall music lovers, this album will surely have you skanking when its released.
