Tarrus Riley: Like father like son

Tarrus Riley grew up in Jamaica. His dad is veteran reggae vocalist Jimmy Riley. He made his recording introduction as an adolescent. In 2004, Tarrus discharged his presentation collection, Difficulties. Riley has reliably piled on grants for his work.

Among his honors in 2011 were the EME Grants (Magnificence in Music and Excitement) for Vocalist of the Year Male and Social Artiste of the Year. Riley likewise copied the 2011 Young Perspective Honor for Social Artiste of the Year. Riley discharged the acoustic collection in 2012 and visited Europe in backing off it with his Balk Soil band.

He worked with saxophonist and maker Dignitary Fraser on his 2014 collection Love Circumstance, which he portrayed as “a genuine tribute to the rock steady period”, and components visitor appearances from U-Roy, Huge Youth, Konshens and Mr. Cheeks. The collection gave him his first number one setting on the Announcement Reggae Collections outline in February 2014.

Ahead of time of his show at Club Metronome in Burlington on February 6 2014, Seven Days made up for lost time with the artist by telephone to discuss his new record, his initial days as a DJ and the best musical exhortation he got from his dad.

On his fifth studio collection, “Love Circumstance”, Jamaican artist/lyricist Tarrus Riley and longstanding maker and musical executive Dignitary Fraser pay tribute to reggae’s immediate precursor rock steady. Be that as it may, more than finding his musical bearing, now living up to expectations autonomously and owning his music, Riley says he has at last come to development in a changed music industry.
