New album Kevin Kinsella ‘Riding Higher Still’

First hearing the Bob Marley song “One Love” in Ireland as a 12 year old boy Kevin Kinsella received his calling to play Reggae music. Founding his first band, The Tribulations, when he was fifteen he soon found himself opening up for Toots and the Maytals who gave him strong encouragement to continue his vocation.

The Tribulations recorded their first full album “The Gate” in 1992 and went on to win the Yamaha Soundcheck competition which took them to both Japan and Jamaica.  In 1995 Kevin founded and named his second group – John Brown’s Body and led them in being signed to Shanachie Records, with whom they recorded several albums which were recognized by both critics and fans as classics of American Reggae.

Prior to signing with Shanachie, Kevin had founded his own imprint label, I Town Records, and it was during his tenure as lead singer and primary song writer of John Brown’s Body that he started and gave name to the group 10 FT Ganja Plant, which has recorded 10 albums for ROIR records. Amidst writing, recording and touring with both John Brown’s Body and 10 FT Ganja Plant, Kevin has released 4 solo records under his own name, the latest one being “RIDING HIGHER STILL” on his own I Town Records imprint.

Kevin Kinsella has been recognized as a true disciple of roots reggae music and both a pioneer and veteran of the Reggae movement in the United States. With a distinctive and powerful voice, a unique and recognizable writing style and spirit filled presence and performance energy – Kevin Kinsella continues to be an important contributor to Reggae music.

Brothers, Delus And Konshens Collaborate On New Single “Live Mi Life”

2

KonshensIn the July issue of Triple the Focus E-Magazine in which Konshens was featured on the cover, he was asked if there were any plans to do another collaboration with brother Delus. He responded, “Yes, definitely but both our solo careers have become our main focus so as soon as time allows it, it will get done.” Well the time has arrived. The brothers teamed up to record new single “Live Mi Life” on the Mad Panamera Riddim, produced by FE2 Music. The Riddim also features I-Octane, Voicemail, Flippa Mafia, Navino, Darrio and Lincoln.

Fans of both Delus and Konshens have often expressed that the two sound alike, reference singles “She’ Happy,” “Chalice Load,” and have even mistook Delus’ single “Another Gal” as Konshens’. However there is no confusing their voices on this track. It is Konshens smooth delivery of – tell you what’s really good, got money in my pocket and I’m feeling good – that opens the song, while Delus’ raspy singjay style on the second verse that begins – suh wah if mi spend pon gyal, suh wah happen if mi love alcohol – that makes the distinction clear.

But way before their solo success, Delus and Konshens achieved duo notoriety when they recorded under the name SOJAH. Their first single entitled “Medz Pon Di Corner” went number one in Japan in 2004, which afforded them the opportunity to tour in Japan. The tour prompted the release of the duos debut album titled “Sons of Jah.” In 2009 they released their Sophomore Album “Modern Revolutions,” at which time the duo went on tour in Europe to promote the album. The album featured artists such as Luciano and Iriepathie.

“Live Mi Life” is just one of the many singles that both Delus and Konshens are promoting. On the heels of his highly successful album, Mental Maintenance, Konshens kept his fan intrigued when he released dancehall singles “Gal Siddung,” “Bubble Gal a Bubble,” “Stop Sign,” “A Suh Mi Tan,” which have been heating up the clubs and airwaves. Similarly, Delus’ singles “What Tomorrow May Bring,” “Mi Find Har,” “Gal My Ting Deh” and his 2011 hit single “Another Gal,” have been in rotation on various radio stations which has garnered him wide spread appeal with fans globally.

Will there be other projects in the works, Delus remarks, “Without a doubt. We have always worked well together. Even when you don’t hear Konshens’ voice on my track, his input is definitely there and vice versa.”
