ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1988 Jamaica sent a Bobsled team to the winter Olympics in Calgary Canada. Known for their Summer Olympic successes, Jamaican athletes were now entering new territory from a " Sun Hot " field to being in an " Out inna dat dere freezing weather " arena. The unique nature of snow in relation to tropical Jamaica tweaked the interest of the media and this created a popular following. From there the team went on to be the inspiration for the successful Disney Movie " Cool Runnings "

One of the founding original members of the Jamaica Bobsled Federation (PCHarris) was also a songwriter producer and together with keyboardist, arranger and songwriter (Peter Curry) of Rocabessa fame, they co-wrote/produced an album for the team. Rise Above It was the main song positioned in the movie Cool Runnings and was never commercially released until now! The version in the film was a live studio recording featuring other notable musicians.

The Album " Rise Above It " has finally been made available to coincide with the 2014 Sochi Olympics and features the actual original song in the film as well as 10 other pop/reggae and R&B songs all based on an uplifting and motivational theme.

Lead vocals include Howard Chen (Toronto singer) who along with MC PC also rapped on the single. Howard Finlason of the popular 80's band ' Rocabessa (satisfaction) ' is featured on a few tracks along with guest artistes Jimmy Rae and others.

All songs were a Harris/Curry collab and production and arrangements involved numerous studios and contributions by all members of the Band Lock Stock & Barrell.

The team continues to produce and are in the throes of new albums and projects. Should the release be successful there is even talk of a few live concert gigs in the making.
