SINGER/SONGWRITER WAYNE STODDART RELEASES NEW ALBUM “IT IS WRITTEN!”

WayneStoddart:ItIsWritten

Multi-award winning vocalist and song writer Wayne Stoddart releases his third solo album “It Is Written” on August 25 2014. The Album takes you on a trip to Jamaica in the 70s and locks you in a rockers jam-session. There is Ska, Rock Steady, One-drop, Rub-a-Dub, Dancehall, Dub and probably the newest reggae genre: Country Reggae. This album is a treat for reggae lovers. It is 100% classic authentic Inspirational Roots Reggae, inside out (and I mean that literally…artwork and music content).

The producer’s legacy speaks loudly on this project; there is definitely a Bob Marley and the Wailers feel and influence. This probably so because the producer is Aston Barrett Jr. a current Wailer, son of Wailers Bassist(Aston Barrett Sen.) and Nephew of the drummer Carlton Barrett. This roots compilation represents young Barrett’s first stab at a complete album production. He has worked on several of the Marley Kids Projects but has never been the captain of the ship.

The album also  introduces the Reggae Force Band which consist of American reggae bassist Alaina Reed, Aston Barrett Jr. and veteran keyboardist  Peter “Pan” Williamson.

There is a pleasant balance of heartwarming reggae music and a potent message of virtue of life on this reggae compilation. It is truly the Psalms, penned around delightful drum and bass and catchy choruses; it will make you want to dance and sing for sure. Simply put, this is a collection of pulsating reggae, beautiful soul searching poetry and sweet melodic vocals.
