2009 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall runner-up R.C. aka Righteous Child has just unleashed his debut EP Rough Survivor via Donovan Germain’s Penthouse imprint. He’s maybe best known for his Busy Signal combination Dreams of Brighter Days, released last year.
This eight track set – of which two cuts are previously unreleased – features four productions by Donovan Germain himself along with material overseen by Austria’s Bassrunner Music, Germany’s Silly Walks Discotheque and Jamaica’s Vikings Productions.
Rough Survivor is a promising and smooth debut album by a passionate and uplifting vocalist, who sings about struggling and overcoming difficulties in life. It’s hard not get excited and moved when listening to tracks like Holding Firm, on the excellent Focus riddim, or the uplifting and infectious Good Morning World.
Donovan Germain has taken R.C. under his wings and is currently managing this emerging roots singer. And Donovan Germain is known for spotting great talents, so don’t be surprised when you see R.C. climbing the charts in a year or two.
