This synergy promises a unique celebration of roots reggae and sound system culture, creating an unforgettable experience for audiences worldwide.
A consistent presence on major European festivals and in clubs, Samory I’s prime mission is to be a voice of Jah, spreading conscious reggae music globally. His solo debut album, “Strength,” was released on November 17, 2023, featuring collaborations with Kabaka Pyramid, Capleton, Lila Iké, Jesse Royal, and Mortimer. Additionally, the album garnered favourable reviews in Rolling Stone and secured the 42nd spot on the magazine’s list of the 100 best albums of 2023.
In October 2018, he released “Careful” via Overstand Entertainment/Easy Star Records, championed as a “big, heavy tune” by BBC Radio’s David Rodigan, and selected by Apple Music Editors as one of only two Jamaican records to be featured on their “Best of 2018” Editorial Playlist. Followed by “Lightning” in July 2019 – a classic down-tempo reggae love song with a modern update. With a sparse rhythm section featuring live organ and rhythm guitar, joined later by live steel guitar, horns and synthesizers, which build to a passionate crescendo. Mortimer sings his way straight into hearts with his romantic, heart-felt lyrics. The endearing video has amassed over 20 million views.
