An internationally recognized Artiste, and acclaimed songwriter, Nadine has been blessed with many talents, dancer, media personality, not to mention her many journalistic contributions throughout local print media, make her one of Jamaica’s most formidable talents. Throughout the years, she has continued to grow and blossom as an artiste; like fine wine, toned, beautiful, and sexy, she has grown from a little girl, into a phenomenal woman, all right in front of the public eye.
In 2009, Nadine decided she wanted to record new music, early January, she began writing and recording, working with some of the brightest new producers in the industry, but, still keeping the link with some of the more established producer’s she collaborated with in the past, Shane Brown , Lenky Marsden, Arif Cooper, and others have helped in creating exciting new songs that her fans have long been waiting for. “I am happy to be just working in the studio again, music is my life, no matter what else that I do, I am a singer/songwriter, who wants to perform, and just get my stuff out there”, she says. Her unique vocal styling has been compared to the likes of Whitney Houston, and Anita Baker, her range and tonal quality has been respected by music ears around the world. Nadine Sutherland is one of our best, and she carries herself and our flag with her usual humility and grace.

After garnering a new generation of fans with her work on “Rising Stars,” she recently took a short hiatus from the popular television show to perform in a series of concert dates across North America. Her singing and dancing had her fans excited by the sheer power of her stage magnetism. Nadine’s many years of hits, had her audiences singing word for word, her every move keeping them in her command.”Manchester Fiesta”, saw her exciting the local masses, one of the defining moment of that night, was her performance. She left them wanting more, and having one emcee marveling on her fitness. Fans are remarking on her new energy, her new drive, and loving her new look.

Her first single “Down on my knees,” produced by Arif Cooper, showcases her range, and her ability to capture raw emotions, and project her depth, and passion. The beautiful, haunting melody, of the music highlights Cooper’s usual musical flare, and the truth and experience Nadine conveys to her audience in the lyrics, proves that she is one of our most dynamic songwriters. Nadine brings a vulnerability, and sensitivity, to the lyrics that paint a picture all can relate to.

Nadine has already established her place in Reggae history, and with this new music you can expect that she will definitely continue to add to her rich legacy, establishing her own unique place in the musical history.

Beenie Man, Tanya, and Anthony Cruz, Bring Back the Vibes to Junction

The ‘King of the Dancehall’ Beenie Man and Dancehall’s ‘rebelution’ leader Tanya Stephens will cruise through the
hills of St. Elizabeth this December

King Of The Dancehall

King Of The Dancehall

Junction, the once bustling business center of Jamaica‘s second largest parish, will now be known as the area’s entertainment center when the ‘King of the Dancehall’ Beenie Man, Dancehall’s ‘rebelution’ leader Tanya Stephens, Lover’s Rock crooner Anthony Cruz, and Roots chanter Prestige cruise through St. Elizabeth’s rolling country-side for Cruz-in’ in Da Hills on December 19th. Instead of taking the show to ‘town’ (Kingston) or one of the other popular entertainment locations throughout the island, New York-based Triple T Production opts to kick-off the island’s Holiday entertainment festivities against the backdrop of Jamaica’s naturally beautiful rural landscape, and hopes to jump start activity in St. Elizabeth’s struggling business epicenter.

Cruz-in’ in Da Hills promises to be the featured holiday event in St. Elizabeth, boasting a diverse line up of Island’s talents, from the up- tempo anthems of Grammy-winning internationally recognized Dancehall deejay Beenie Man, to the soulful spoken word influenced tunes of sing-jay Tanya Stephens. Cruz-in’ in Da Hills also marks the birthday of silky-sweet singer Anthony Cruz. The three entertainers, along with Roots soldier Prestige, will make their way to Junction, an area that has seen a decline in economic and social activity in recent years.

“Junction is like ‘town’ to St. Elizabeth, it’s a central area, close to Black River,” states Tasz Smith, CEO of Triple T Production, whose family hails from St. Elizabeth and neighboring parish Manchester. “Junction used to be the place where everyone in the surrounding areas came for business, or church, or social activities-it is like a connecting point.”

Historically, St. Elizabeth, named for=2 0the wife of Jamaica’s first English Governor, was one of Jamaica’s most prosperous parishes, with Black River becoming an important seaport for shipping sugar and molasses, and becoming the center of the logging trade. In the 1960′s, St. Elizabeth became a major producer of bauxite and aluminum. Today, the parish is a popular tourist destination, with some of the island’s most beautiful tourist attractions like Treasure Beach, the Black River Safari, YS River Falls, Bamboo Avenue, and the Appleton Rum Distillery. St. Elizabeth is also the home of Little Ochi, an area in Alligator Pond noted for its excellent seafood.

While Junction is far from a tourist hot spot, Junction is a key attraction to the residents of St. Elizabeth, who find it necessary to visit the area regularly for shopping, vending, socializing, and to conduct business. Junction, unlike many other places in Jamaica, has also remained relatively crime free, with many houses and stores without burglar bars or grills, an uncommon phenomenon in today’s society.

“Junction is a cozy town, and the people are very close-knit and welcoming,” states Smith. “We want Cruz-in’ In Da Hills to bring back a vibe to Junction-to re-energize the area.”

Cruz-in’ In Da Hills featuring Beenie Man, Tanya Stephens, Anthony Cruz and Prestige will be held on Saturday, December 19th in Junction, St. Elizabeth. For more information, contact Triple T Production at 1-917-617-0874US/ 1- 876-419-0141JA or log on to www.tripletproduction.com.
