People are saying…“Gramps Morgan possesses one of the most unique and distinctive voices in modern reggae, his tone is unmistakeable which makes his overall sound highly desirable, if you love real reggae.

He is at the height of his powers on this new solo album especially when he cries out to his African roots on I Hear You Calling and Want Fi Charge Mi. Life Too Short and Reggae Music Lives are equally impressive. Whilst some of his romantic love songs may be too overtly sentimental for his male fans, he seems to strike the right chord for his female fan base…as he would say Gideon…”

– David “Sir Ram Jam” Rodigan – Kiss FM

“Gramps is a formidable songwriter and producer…His hopeful and upbeat disposition translates to develop some of reggae’s most well-produced and thoughtful sounds.”

– Justine Amadori Ketola, Reggaeville.com

“Vocally, musically and technically this collection of tunes impresses even more than its predecessor due to the growth of Gramps Morgan as producer, songwriter and vocalist.”

“The album is a brilliantly upbeat affair…Gramps seems to produce the sort of music that’s really lacking at the moment, really inspiring and uplifting. He’s not afraid to embrace the latest in music technology whilst still remaining resolutely true to his reggae roots. It’s good to see it being taken to the next level and being made accessible for everyone.” – Jamrockvybz.com

 “I feel gramps has matured on this album and come into his own.” – Kulcha Shok Muzik

“The decision by Gramps Morgan to launch his new album Reggae Music Lives in Nevis saw a huge turnout of fans for the event. Gramps did not disappoint and gave his fans an evening full of great reggae music and an amazing vibe. The album has quickly shot to number 1 on local radio stations in St.Kitts Nevis and the Eastern Caribbean. Reggae Music Lives promises to be a timeless classic. I have my copy. You should definitely get yours too.” – Mark Brantley, Senior Lawyer and Leader of the Opposition in the National Parliament of St. Kitts and Nevis
