Cherine – How We Living (Official Music Video)

‘How We Living’ is another powerful and thought provoking video from Cherine Anderson. The track was produced by Gussie Clark and Cherine and is one of the featured tracks on her latest mixtape JA9.25.

How We Living? is the question asked by Cherine, opening our eyes to some of the realities faced by many while at the same time urging listeners to “take responsibility” to overcome the struggles amidst harsh realities. This heartfelt song was cleverly penned by Cherine with assistance from Chevaughn; with each lyric commanding, inspiring and uplifting. Her mellow and soulful voice does even further justice as ‘How We Living’ takes you where street meets sweet.

With a creative and captivating outline, Cherine conceptualized and directed the video which runs more like a mini-movie. The video is compelling, a must see and will capture both hearts and minds as much as the song does.  Although the video features the struggles of a young lady, her male audience is not left out as the video creatively captures the message of the song with issues that are real and affects both men and women.

Cherine Anderson’s EP Release Making Waves

"Coming Over Tonight" Cherine Anders...
The wait is over…The Introduction ARRIVES!

Singer-Songwriter Cherine Anderson releases her EP, The Introduction-Dubstyle, via
Dancehall Soul Productions/Zlink Entertainment.

The East Kingston, Jamaica soulstress started 2009 with a bang by performing at three Barack Obama Inaugural Balls, performing at the World Special Olympics in Idaho, and is currently on tour supporting her first official release, The Introduction-Dubstyle EP. After spending the last seven months touring the US, Australia and Europe with the likes of Sly & Robbie, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Slightly Stoopid and Pepper, it’s clear that Anderson has been working hard and entertaining many fans with her infectious Dancehall Soul sound.

The Introduction-Dubstyle, available on iTunes, is a perfect combination of dancehall, soul and lover’s rock. The nine track EP boasts outstanding production from Grammy Award winning producers Sly & Robbie, hit makers David Norland (Madonna, Janet Jackson), Christopher Birch, Gussie Clarke and legendary mixing engineer Errol Brown (Bob Marley, Ziggy Marley), among others. The multi-faceted Anderson plays triple duty on the project, performing, writing on all nine songs and co-producing several tracks.

Anderson’s vocals are remarkable from song to song. Her powerful voice soars on anthems like “Shine On Jamaica” and the female anthem “Talk if Yuh Talking”. With lyrics cutting particular hard on the inspiring “Shine On Jamaica”, Anderson speaks to the realities of young black girls in the harsh inner city.

“two inches taller than di pram weh she a push har baby inna/
love di streets but she cyaan spell har baby father name/
a bleach out har face fi lighten har pain- ghetto reality”
-“Shine On Jamaica”

Her writing is thought provoking without being preachy.  The talent combines intellect with soulfulness, but never loses that feminine touch. Her youth is exposed on the sassy “Tuff Enuff” where she flirts with the boys and at the same time empowers the sisters.
In between her signature flirtatious giggles she asks,

“baby talk is cheap/only action speaks/words go skin deep so how bad do you want me?”
-“Tuff Enuff”

This reggaeton/dancehall flavored track picks up the tempo and will definitely make you move your feet, while chart-topping hits “Coming Over Tonight” and “Kingston State of Mind” should find favor with the hardcore roots lovers. Fans of the ‘King Tubbys’ dub-era will appreciate the extended drum and bass mixes on several cuts. The Introduction-Dubstyle is definitely an album for all ages.

Shortly after its online release, The Introduction-Dubstyle is already receiving rave reviews. According to CDBABY.COM, Anderson’s EP “…is strong throughout. It’s really great music that respects the traditions of reggae’s past, yet sounds totally modern.” As one of the most popular online retail sites for independent music, CDBABY.COM selected Anderson’s EP as their Editor’s Pick and will honored her debut project as their featured Editor’s Pick on their website on February 20.

Fans, friends and supporters of Cherine can get their copy of The Introduction-Dubstyle at the below mentioned sites. REMEMBER to log in and leave your review/comments. Support independent music and artists.

Cherine Anderson In Washington For Celebration of Barack Obama

The twenty-something talent is excited about performing in Washington, come January 19 and 20, as part of the celebrations to welcome North America’s 44th president, Barack Obama into office.

“The song is called Barack Obama, which features reggae-rocker Michael Frenti and hip-hop group Soliloquists of Sound,” Anderson tells Splash in an interview on Wednesday.

“We never recorded it, we just did it live in a couple of spots,” she says, “a couple of people from Obama’s camp saw us performing and became really excited about it and made a couple calls.”

That aside, Anderson is also excited about her first official project – an eight-track EP – which is set to be released during this holiday season.

“We decided to put it out in order to give fans a taste of what to expect on Kingston State Of Mind,” Anderson says of the EP aptly titled The Introduction Dub Style.

With well-rotated singles like Good Love, Coming Over Tonight (featuring Chuck Fenda) and an ambitious mixtape Street Anthems behind her, Anderson is hopeful that the “new stuff” on the EP will go over well with her listeners. And if her tours are anything to go by, it already is.

“We’ve been getting really good feedback from the tours, Australia, Europe and North America. I believe there is even greater anticipation for the album now.”

The Introduction – the first project on her still-new Dancehall Soul label – she says is currently available at her shows only, but should be available at online stores like iTunes and Amazon before year-end.

And speaking of the year, Anderson admits she’s had a great one, since ace producers David Norland (who has worked with Madonna) and local heavy-hitters Sly & Robbie have been behind all her productions.

“Right now I’m just busy, busy promoting my new singles Shine On Jamaica and Talk If Yuh Talking,” Anderson adds, “they’re both songs to encourage and uplift and Jamaica needs that right now!”

What’s next for the bluesy ‘divette’? Lots she tells us. “It’s back to Philadelphia this weekend, doing some work with Wyclef Jean. got a couple shows to do in Vancouver, Canada ahead of Washington in January,” Anderson notes. But her busy schedule and spending Christmas away from her loved ones on The Rock seem a small price to pay for the sake of her art.

“I’m having so much fun, 2008 has totally surpassed everything that I expected. I’m having the time of my life.”

Girl Power – 7 Women Carrying the Reggae Banner

2

The results of the Highlanda.net survey on new female reggae artists are in…

Several female voices have come out of Jamaica in the last few years who are looking to one day be mentioned amongst the likes of dancehall veterans like Marcia Griffiths, Nadine Sutherland, Lady Saw, Tanya Stephens and others.  Who is your favorite FEMALE reggae artist on the scene right now?

…and the winner was a Jamaican actress and Dancehall/Reggae vocalist, Cherine Anderson with 40% of the votes. Her duet with Chuck Fender entitled Coming Over established itself as an anthem in the dancehall. Download a free mixtape of her music hosted by Rory of Stone Love from her website CherineAnderson.com. Cherine is a young, but accomplished talent. Her films to date include Dancehall Queen and One Love.

In second place was Queen Ifrica, also known as Fyah Muma out of Tony Rebel’s Flames Production camp. Queen is more than just a good entertainer. In her hit song Daddy she tackles the issues of child molestation in the household. Her music is a true inspiration especially to all women and is filled with reality and very timely, conscious messages.

Next we introduce to the world Etana. Etana, which means ‘strong one,’ rejected the words and image of the sexy dancehall genre in favor of a visible lifestyle defined by Rastafari. She has by all evidence, been vindicated in her choices. Etana’s debut single, Wrong Address, struck a resounding chord and is still getting major radio play, while Roots, her next release is climbing similarly.

Also weighing in was the young Jamaican idol and Universal Motown recording artist Tami Chynn. A pop princess who emerged from one of the grittiest, male dominated music scenes, Jamaica’s dancehall. “My influences are very eclectic. If you browsed my iPod you’d get confused, but it all works really,” says Tami. Her new single Frozen featuring Akon is the title track of her new album in stores now.

All these artists are a big wave in the tsunami of talent coming out of the Caribbean. Other upcoming stars in the business to keep an eye on:

Tessanne Chin
Alaine
Mischu Laikah
