Reggae veteran Clinton Fearon – former bass man and singer in The Gladiators – has had a stunning career since he left The Gladiators and moved from Jamaica to the U.S. He’s one of the most consistent reggae artists and he hasn’t dropped a poor production yet.
And his brand new EP is no exception. The only bad thing about Waiting is that it’s too short. Way too short. It only collects four songs – two vocal cuts and their dub versions. But it’s greatness without a doubt.
The standout song is the title track with its lingering guitar and Clinton Fearon’s emotional and playful singing on top of a sweet riddim underpinned by a pulsating organ.
Let’s hope this EP is just a taste of a new album.
