Acclaimed reggae and soul crooner Beres Hammond’s daughter Nastassja Hammond has started to make a name for herself as The Wizard in music industry. One of her earlier productions was A Moment in Time taken from her father’s album of the same name.
Since then she has worked with both reggae and pop artists, including Nelly Furtado, Kreesha Turner and her falsetto singing cousin Courtney John. The latter has also lent his name to the genre busting outfit The Courtney John Project, a trio including Courtney John himself along with The Wizard and Stephen “Lenky” Marsden. Together they have invented a new genre called rootstronic.
