Spanish Town's Leisa Angella Reid aka Empress Eko is a powerful entertainer and a talented song writer well known to be unique and versatile with her craft.

She displays effortless control over the range and tone of her voice and owns a very unique, down to earth and raw vibe that demands you to stop and take notice.

And that's exactly what US-based Jason 'Jahson' Mitchell from GFAMM Entertainment did. He was very impressed and is now very interested in signing her to his label.

It took sweat and tears and endless hours of hard work and dedication honing her talents over the past two decades though, to get to this point . 

Although Empress Eko broke into the industry back in 2006 with her first single titled “SINGLE MOTHERS” , she had been writing since she was 12 years old. SINGLE MOTHERS” was well received by listeners and heavily rotated on Irie FM which eventually lead to Empress Eko being featured in The Beat Magazine in 2007.

She has performed on a number of stage shows all over Jamaica, including Manchester Fiesta, Bash in the Valley, Fantan Mojah's Earth Strong, A St Mary Mi Come From, GT Taylor's Extravaganza and Tony Rebel's Rebel Salute, to name a few.

Dont let her tiny frame fool you, this lady comes packed with massive voice and heart as well as the desire to sing out her conscientious vibes for everyone to hear and enjoy. Or as in her words.... that the kids can sing along and elders can always say yes to Empress Eko songs when they are played...” 

Leisa ( Empress Eko) claims to draw her inspiration to write and perform from deep down inside her very soul... her very roots to draw up positivity and livity for those who enjoy her music. 

She admits that her own yard has had a heavy influence on both her writing and performance style. And that she grew up being inspired by Buju Banton and Shabba Ranks. As well as encouraged and supported by friendships with fellow artists like Izan'Jahdon.

In N0v 2014 another Empress Eko single flared up and got noticed when “ KNOW WEH YOU WANT ” found it's way onto Shyrick Dancehall Radio's top 10 charts and stuck there like glue landing in 5th spot and from there climbing to third rank.

Other Empress Eko singles to look out for are "Single Mothers" "Cut Above the Rest" "
How Me Fi Stop" "Success Get to Dem" and "Mek We a Pree Dem"

...I'll sing out my heart just for my fans .. I love how I'm be motivated by them...”

Eko is now moving full force towards her goals in music and the sky is no limit for her, with help from GFAMM.

Award winning Jamaican songstress, talented, beautiful and extremely passionate about her music, petite and 5'3, this would be the best way to describe Sophia Brown, known to all her friends as THE SENSATIONAL “SB”!

Sophia will be highlighting her year with a big date in the US on November 22, 2014, where the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Linkage Award winner will join R&B/disco legend Melba Moore as a headlining performer at the Lady Flava Radio Network Awards Show in Hartford, Connecticut. “I am honored to have the opportunity to share stage with an R&B legend like Melba Moore, who has not only given so much to the music industry but is an acclaimed actress as well. I see this as a tremendous opportunity for me to broaden my musical horizon and work with a different kind of audience. 

I am ready to rock the house” stated Sophia. Brown is not only performing that night, but has also been nominated in the “Best Female Lovers Rock Vocalist” category which also honors hip hop, R&B, gospel, disco and dance-hall artists. “It's always nice to be recognized for your work but what makes this award even more special to me is that is is not coming from the Jamaican diaspora so to speak but from the wider music and film industry in the USA.”

2014 started with Sophia back in the studio working on her latest single “Touch Me,” produced by Denver D Music, for her label “Music Mecka Records” the first single of her upcoming 3rd album. This single is distributed internationally on iTunes by Zojack Worldwide. Her first performances of the year were in Jamaica before hitting the international scene. She has also recently recorded the single “We're Lovers,” with Los Angeles based artist Black Ice and has shot the music video for that single before embarking on a month long “Catch Me If You Can” US tour. This summer she released a lovers rock ballad single about falling in love “Wide Awake,” produced by Christopher Tyrell and distributed by Zojack Worldwide.

Sophia has also recently finished recording a new single with the Chilean Band Gondwana, which will be released on their upcoming album later this year.

Sophia Brown's first position as a dance choreographer in 1986 on the Appleton Estate Tour for Dance-hall Pioneers, opened the door for her to showcase her musical talents with the Jamaican Tourist Board. This was the fortuity that gave life to Sophia's dream of becoming an International & Inspirational acclaimed Reggae Artiste.

In 1988, with a network of support she left her home of Parish St. Elizabeth to live closer to Kingston the music capitol of Jamaica in St. Catherine. The beautiful and talented Sophia, standing at a petite 5'3" was extremely passionate about her music. She persevered and knew that "every journey begins with a first step" and it took her 3 years, but she finally realized her passion and released her 1st recording, a single entitled "Jig Me" Produced by Outta National in 1992. This gave Sophia her very 1st local radio listener-ship, resonating well with reggae music fans! This created an opportunity for Sophia to perform alongside popular International Reggae & Hip-hop Artists Shabba Ranks, Lady Patra, Frankie Paul, Richie Stephens & Doug E.

This sensational performance was greatly received escalating her career, with the collaboration of renowned UK producer Mad Professor. This collaboration set in motion this "Lovers Rock Artiste" putting her on a roll. Initially, she landed a recording contract with the Cayman Island Co.

This didn't put the cabash on Sophia, she remained focused forming her own record company called "Music Mecka Records" with colleague Dale Dunkley, together they released a host of singles during that time, including "Baby Tonight" and "Give it up" which received favorable airplay.

Later on, Sophia took to the road doing several tours both locally and abroad, including NY, Arizona and Virginia. In 2002, in Norfolk, Virginia, She performed with such greats as Snoop Dogg, Lil Kim & Ja Rule. In 2007, on her return to Jamaica, Sophia recorded a single entitled "Love You Pure" a Reggae/R&B track, "I was inspired to write that song after listening to a friend's own personal experience. It was a beautiful song that could have easily been a Valentine's Day classic." said a smiling Sophia Brown. A video for this single followed eventually finding its way on the local and E.Strip Video Charts peaking at #3.

Sophia continued recording and releasing other hit singles under her "Music Mecka" label without Dale Dunkley, before releasing her first album "The Spotlight" April 15, 2009.

JAMAICA has been blessed with many talented musicians who have made their contribution to the development of our music industry and to music worldwide. Keyboardist Ansel Collins is one such individual who will be lauded for generation to come though his work is usually overlooked.

Like many musicians, Collins started out as a singer performing at the Vere Johns Opportunity Hour in the early 1960's before moving on to playing drums in the band, the Carib Beat. He eventually changed to keyboards after being influenced by Conroy Cooper, brother of Grub, and one of the original members of Fab Five. He eventually left the Carib Beat and joined the Father Gooden outfit, the RTH Invincible Band where he further honed his skills as a musician.

After his band experience, he became one of the leading studio session men, playing piano and keyboards for producers
Bunny Lee, Phil Pratt, Leslie Kong, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd and Prince Buster. During this period of the late 1960's he created some famous keyboard phrases that are still being copied today.

The year was 1968 when Collins received some funds to record material for the British market from an associate in England. Collins produced four songs, the first,
Night Doctor, was the first recording for a young drummer named Sly Dunbar. Another of the four recordings was a track named Double Barrel which was an instrumental. Collins gave the track to former Techniques member and producer, Winston Riley who took it to England and added toasting vocals by Dave Barker to it.

In 1971, Collins joined forces with Dave Barker for the reggae singles Double Barrel and Monkey Spanner. Double Barrel was a big hit in Britain and would eventually sell over one million copies. It even made the American pop chart. 

Although the song was a big hit, Collins says he did not benefit from its success, another case of copyright infringement which he says is finally being settled. Monkey Spanner featured bass player Lloyd Parks and guitarist Rad Bryan. Another smashing hit was Stalag 17 featuring Tenor Saw, General Ecco and Sister Nancy.

In the 1970's Collins went to the famous Channel One studio on Maxfield Avenue. There he resumed his work as one of Jamaica's top keyboard session men. As part of "The Revolutionaries" which included Sly Dunbar, Herman Marquis, Robbie Shakespeare, Ranchie McLean and Headley "Deadly” Bennett. He played on all the major hits of Channel One for the label's emerging acts which included
The Mighty Diamonds, Leroy Smart, Wailing Soul, Earth and Soul, The Jays and Ranking Trevor. In addition, Collins played for other artistes and studios including Tubbys and Dynamics.

In the 1980's, he began touring with
Jimmy Cliff and co-produced some of Cliff's Columbia Records albums including the gold-selling Special.

Collins also toured with many other reggae greats, including Toots Hibbert. He also found time to record two solo albums,
So Long and Ansel Collins on which he sang and played keyboards.

Nowadays, Collins still works out with Sly and Robbie and has contributed his talents to several Taxi Gang projects, including Mambo Taxi and La Trenggae. He is still making music and is currently working on a new vocal and instrumental album.

Ansel Collins - one of the great piano and keyboard players of popular music in the Caribbean.

Many artists struggle to establish their musical identity, laboriously trying on different musical styles like a piece of clothing, looking to find what fits. But there are others that emerge fully formed, in full command of their craft, their identity and their music. Omar ‘Imar’ Shepherd fits firmly in the latter category. His soothing music not only generates a calm and relaxing feeling but has had an inspirational and motivational effect on the youths.

A young man who grew up in the parish of St. Thomas, Jamaica, Imar was drawn to music at an early age; singing at church and various community events, but didn’t take music seriously until he was in his early 20’s. He explains, “While working at Tastee, I was invited to perform at the annual Christmas party. Based on my performance, I received an automatic invitation to all company sponsored events, , Beach trips and company funerals. The coordinator told me I had what it takes to be a star, a diamond in the rough, and from then I began this musical journey.”

His first big break came as lead singer for the touring band ‘Crucial’ that performed weekly at the Market Place on Red Hills Road in Kingston. Subsequently, he began working as a solo artiste during which he was a guest artiste on the popular Tastee Talent Search Concert for two (2) years.

As he ventured deeper into the music industry in the birthplace of reggae music, Kingston, Jamaica, the pieces began to fall into place for Imar. In 2010, he hooked up with singer, songwriter and local producer, Demarco for Rebel Music. The two recorded and released the single “Woman I need You” in collaboration with House of Reggae in Canada. The single received heavy rotation both locally and internationally, and sparked major interest across the world from Europe, United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
Riding the wave of his recent success, Imar has taken to the studio working with some of the most notable producers in the reggae music industry, Demarco-Rebel Music, Digital B, St Bess Records, Calibud Music and J Islands, just to name a few.

Now recording in earnest, Imar has become an avid songwriter, taking his influences, like Dennis Brown, Bob Marley, Beres Hammond, and using them to shape his own style. “I love to see people happy,” Imar explains, “Music is a tool that brings happiness to many people.”

When he is not recording in the studio, Imar is on the road honing his on-stage presence and sharing his love for the music in his own style. “Doing the shows gives me the opportunity to interact with people. It gives me joy and it’s an opportunity to put forth the brand. Many times you are able to refine your selections based on the fans reaction.”

Imar is definitely on the rise. He is taking his share of the music industry with his soulful and humble personality. Many are saying this new reggae sensation has been given the reggae baton and is ready to take on the marathon reggae road routes.
