Solo Banton – Old Raggamuffin – Press Release

Solo Banton Old Raggamuffin Press Release

Time in music really flies, especially when it comes to artists and album launches. I actually find it incredible that Solo Banton’s last album was as far back as 7 years ago, as it seems like only a couple of months ago Higher Levels was released and the music from that album still sounds fresh and energetic, just like this new release ‘Old Raggamuffin’. For those of you who love Banton’s works, you will not be disappointed with this new release. Gav

UK reggae artist Solo Banton is back with a bang, once again joining forces with Reality Shock producer Kris Kemist to bring you their 3rd studio album “Old Raggamuffin”, following on from “Walk Like Rasta” 2010 & “Higher Levels” 2012.

Over the last 7 years Solo Banton has continued to establish himself as one of the UK’s favourite Reggae artists, performing all over the globe & hosting the biggest reggae stage in the UK, Lions Den at Boomtown. Solo has been so busy in fact that he left us 7 years without an album. So now was the time for “Old Raggamuffin”.

The production is 100% Reality Shock and features some scorching combinations with artists like Macka B, Mikey General, Earl Sixteen & Sabrina Bell. Expect heavyweight authentic roots reggae music, blessed with melody, heavy basslines, beautiful horn sections & Amelia Harmony’s angelic background vocals complimenting Solo’s hard hitting Deejay style, filled with intelligent & thought provoking lyrics.
