CANADIAN SINGER DANIEL CASAVANT, PROFESSES HIS LOVE FOR JAMAICA!

Daniel Casavant—

FIVE years ago, Canadian singer Daniel Casavant visited Jamaica for the first time and fell in love with the country.

The 53-year-old, Montreal-based singer is back in the island promoting his single Jam in Jamaica.

“Jam in Jamaica is a homage to not only the country, but the people of Jamaica. My intentions were to take the rhythms of reggae and combine them with my musical roots, and now I have the pleasure of releasing it while in the country where the song was inspired,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

Co-written with his wife Kathy Kates, the song was officially released on the weekend and is available digitally.

Casavant said the single features a hint of rock, roots, country and reggae which will go over well with listeners. He also expressed the desire to work with local artists.

“I would love to come back and perform as part of a festival. I would also love to have the opportunity to record with some of the fine Jamaican musicians who have made names for themselves internationally,” he said.

Casavant said he recorded his first studio album in 2009, entitled Nine at the Time. He followed up with Soul Reunion.

His other singles include Wishes for Christmas, Walking from the Clouds and Never Too High, Never Too Low.
