ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brina is a new voice of World Roots Reggae Music from Jamaica, an artiste steeped in the sounds and rhythms of her Jamaican culture. With the release of this incredible debut album “Under One Sun”, Brina is now ready to share her music with the world.

Under One Sun features Jamaican legends Toots Hibbert (of Toots and the Maytals) guest vocals, and Sly Dunbar (of Sly and Robbie) on Drums. The quality of the songs and music, combined with Brina’s talent and sincerity drew many great musicians who were eager to be part of this album.

The seeds for Under One Sun were planted in 2007 when Brina met Kieran, a Scottish musician living in Jamaica. – This meeting of minds and cultures sparked a flow of creativity and they began writing songs together. It would soon be time for Brina to record her debut album, to be enjoyed by the whole world, truly representing the talent and creativity that exists in Jamaica.

Descended from The Maroons, Brina’s deep connection with drums and African music is as natural as her vocal expressions of freedom and justice. Her desire is to fuse together elements of her rich cultural and musical heritage using Reggae, Nyabinghi and other musical styles from the African diaspora; singing of justice, equality, liberation, oneness and love. Brina's songs bring a positive healing message to the world.

In 2009 when Kieran and Brina built a small studio using driftwood and plywood in a little cottage in Stony Hill, on the outskirts of Kingston, recording and production of the album began. Venturing out of their studio to track live drums and bass at Bob Marley’s world famous Tuff Gong recording studio, with Sly Dunbar at Anchor Studios, and Grafton Studio for the live horn sessions. Some memorable vocal sessions were recorded in Jamaica’s mystical Blue Mountains. The power of the internet allowed for drum and guitar sessions to be recorded in Columbia and California, lending a truly global dimension to the project. Everything else was tracked live in the little studio in Stony Hill, in between hurricanes, tropical storms and loud street sound systems. Recording was completed in the summer of 2010, with final mixing and mastering completed in 2011.

The full album credits read like a who’s who of some of Jamaica’s finest musicians including: Sly Dunbar on drums. Jubba White, Jallanzo, and Luke Dixon of Dubtonic Kru on drums, guitar and keyboards respectively. Rupert Bent III and Omar Francis on guitars, Michael ‘Ibo’ Cooper of Third World, Demar Gayle of Raging Fyah, Sheldon Bernard, Stephen Maxwell and Jerome Tulloch on pianos & keyboards. Dean Fraser, Nambo Robinson and Dwight Richards on Horns. Calvin Mitchell and Phillip Supersad on Nyabinghi hand drums. Kieran C Murray played Bass Guitar and also produced the album. From other corners of the globe and lending an International flavour: L.A. producer John Barnes III was integral in vocal production, Canadian Guitarist/Producer JB Eckl (Santana, War) on guitar, the renowned Afro-Caribbean drummer Istvan Dely from Columbia on percussions and Paul Gonzales from The USA added some Latin funk flavours on drums.

Two tracks ‘Listen’ and ‘Real Reggae Music’ were mixed in Jamaica by Errol Brown (Bob Marley, Ziggy Marley) and released in 2010. The rest of the album was mixed in Los Angeles by Jon Rezin (Santana, Maroon 5)

With Brina’s incredible and powerful voice and songs backed up by this stellar line up of musicians, Brina's iconic debut album will delight lovers of music and reggae all over the globe. This album is for everyone, taking us on a musical journey with the classic sounds of; Roots Rock Reggae, rocked up Nyabinghi, classic One Drop Riddims, acoustic Nyabinghi drumming and chanting with a rural Jamaican gospel style, Funky Pop Rock, Rocking Dub, African, Latin and Brazilian grooves. Like other classic Jamaican albums embraced by fans of myriad musical genres, this album embraces all the diverse musical influences mentioned, whilst at the same time staying effortlessly and firmly rooted in the Reggae tradition.

Brina believes that music, a universal language which crosses all borders, is a powerful force that will help bring about the dream of millions of people around the globe - the oneness of the whole human race. “Under One Sun” will put Roots Reggae Music with a spiritual message back on the world map.
