The latest addition to the thriving VI reggae scene.

Sampler

Eleven years ago renowned singer Dezarie dropped her highly acclaimed debut album 'FYA'. Her album and enchanting voice broke the male dominance on the booming U.S. Virgin Islands reggae scene.

Reemah - Check Your WordsNow another strong female singer has stepped out of the shadows. Reemah was born on the island of St. Croix and was first heard on Chance to Grow, a duet with Bambú Station on their album 'Break the Soil' released in 2006. It was followed by her self-financed promotional EP 'No Questions', and in July 2012 by her rootsy debut album 'Check Your Words'.

The similarities with Dezarie are apparent. Both have conscious, spiritual and uplifting messages and sing with strong confidence and nerve.

'Check Your Words' based on live backing with a jazzy horn section and is mainly produced by Kedroy “Catalyst” Mitchell, a former keys player in Bambú Station. Three cuts were also produced by Tippy I from I Grade Records and two by Jalani Horton from Bambú Station. This trio of producers have meant a great deal to this mature and promising debut album.
