“ANY LOVE” Taddy P and Aj Brown is Dancehall Now
Known for his infectious bass lines, master Bass Player/Producer/Artiste Taddy P does not disappoint with his latest release, the reggae version of a classic from late R&B icon Luther Vandross “Any Love” done in collaboration with the incomparable AJ Brown.
Its less than a year since the release of his second album “Gimmie Di Bass” which features the hits “Heart of Stone” featuring Tanya Stephens, and “Leave The Crumbs” featuring Mackie Conscious. Taddy P is currently creating waves with the Teddy Pendergrass cover “Come On Go With Me” featuring Evin Lake receiving lots of airplay on stations like Hitz fm, Irie fm, Mello fm to name a few. It’s safe to say he has impeccable musical taste in choosing songs and vocalists to compliment his style of music – a unique blend of Jazz and Reggae.
“With ‘Come on go with me’ doing so well, I wanted to follow up with something just as good” Taddy P said, so he called on guitarist Audley Chisholm and keyboard player Alex Martin- Blanken to assist him in making the beat along with vocalist AJ Brown whose impressive range compliments a simply awesome cover.
Fans can look forward to lots more from Taddy P as he has quite a few performances lined up, including his role as one of the judges on the upcoming television series “Jamaica’s Best School Band.”

Groundation is a roots reggae band that blends elements of jazz, funk, salsa and dub. Their genre-bending sounds provide the perfect platform for the fiery, conscious lyrics of lead singer and primary writer Harrison Stafford.
Groundation formed in 1998 when Stafford (guitar/lead vocals), Marcus Urani (organ/keys/piano) and Ryan Newman (bass) met in the jazz program of California’s Sonoma State University. Over the years, the band grew to 9-pieces including a jazz horn section, percussionists and background singers.
Groundation has released nine albums independently – collaborating with reggae legends including Don Carlos and The Congos – and developed an international following. They tour extensively and will support “Building An Ark” with live shows in the US this fall and a music video for the focus track “Humility.”
‘Building An Ark’ is the best this group has ever sounded on record. Ours fans will feel that rare explosive energy that is Groundation with a focus on sonic quality, clarity and words of strength,” says Stafford.
