Album Notes
Derrick Lara, one of Jamaica's top classic vocalists and musician was born in 1958 in the Concrete Jungle of Tivoli gardens, raised by his Grandmother until age eight. As far back as Derrick can remember he used to sit and beat on metal pans and plastic buckets with sticks to the rhythm of ska and motown. At age eight, Derrick was found in the chapel of Hilltop Prep School playing the piano without any tutoring or music classes. At age 13 Derrick sat in for musicians and bands mainly playing drums but other instruments as well.
Presently Derrick is known worldwide for his vocals and harmonies with the trio group called the Tamlins, and has toured worldwide over the many years. His solo and compilation cd's have been published and sold as well as played on radio worldwide.
The new album striving is a joint production with his brother Thomas Hill and studio engineer and photographer Jermaine Buchanan of the newly formed Derrick Lara Muzik Publishing LLC. Thomas doing his role with artwork and supervising mixing and mastering says It was time for Derrick to step up and write, produce instrumentation as well as all vocal and harmony.
Jermaine Buchanan a worthy and hard working young man has worked alongside side with Derrick over the years and now engineering as well as doing Derricks photos and videography under derrick Lara Muzik Publication. and has his elbows in Track four of the Striving album joint writing Lyrics and mixing the music. The song called Man was published on Youtube and now is being honored as the fourth track.
Track two is a Phil Collins cover of In the air tonight and will probably open some ears across the world, as many of us loved the original and now it is in a new reggae strong driving rhythm
The album is named after the track three Striving, which has already opened its own doors to many sound systems and radio dj's.
On behalf of the team here at Derrick Lara Muzik Publishing LLC we want to thank you for taking the time to read this new journey , and hope you will enjoy your cd or mp3 downloads.
