Listen to Treesha

treesha-listenKenya-born and Germany-based singer Treesha started singing in school and in church. After moving to Germany she was discovered by Gentleman and joined his Evolution Band about three years ago. But while on tour she met talented singjay Skarra Mucci who believed in her talent and signed her on his own label.

One of her first singles as a solo singer was a cut on Oneness Records’ Retro Locks riddim, which dropped earlier this year. Her Don’t Do It is a slice of contemporary one drop showcasing a confident singer with great vocal capabilities.

Listen has a number of different producers involved – Oneness, DJ Denzen and Bazzazian – and collects 15 tracks offering mostly modern reggae, but also a few slices of R&B, ska and lightweight dancehall.

Treesha has a lush and sensual singing style and highlights include the urgent I’m a Lion, the catchy title track and the romancing Skarra Mucci combination Love You Like 123.

Nice when talented singers are able to move from the background to the spotlight.

Real reggae music from Brina

Brina is an upcoming female reggae singer from Jamaica, who recently put out her debut double A side single Listen/Real Reggae Music.

These two tunes are real scorchers. Believe me. If you like early 70’s reggae Trojan or Pama style, then both tunes will surely appeal to you.

Listen is a soul-drenched one drop whereas Real Reggae Music is a pure summer banger reminiscent of Reggae From the Ghetto with its gospel chorus.

Brina recently opened for The Mighty Diamonds and The Jolly Boys on their UK tours. And her upcoming debut album features a stellar line-up of musicians – Sly Dunbar, Toots Hibbert, Michael “Ibo” Cooper, Dean Fraser and Nambo Robinson just to name a few.

Brina’s powerful voice and style can be compared to the queen of reggae Marcia Griffiths, so be sure to check out her single on a download platform near you.
