A quote from the interview: How would describe the sound and special style for this new Summer in Kingston album? What made you decide to go for a digital album?

Summer in Kingston
I just wanted to create a real feel good album, when you’ve been doing it for as much time I as I have, you want to re-invent and do something that still lives. It’s a digital album and the best part is, I’m giving you a recession price – $2.99! A sign of a appreciation more so than anything, I just wanted to get everybody back, involved, feelin’ it and lovin’ it.

Next year: physical cd release with more songs to be added!
It’s a 2 year project that we are having, we will eventually put the hard copy out with more tracks to it. At the moment there are 8. Sugarcane is the first single which is doing really well over here in the states, lots of buzz, lots of vibes…. we’re doing our thing, so fingers crossed. Read more.
