Album Notes
Fresh off the presses for 2016 Foreign Key Records drops a new full length album of Heavy Roots tunes from Grammy Winning Jamaican vocalist Mykal Rose (Black Uhuru). Guests Sly & Robbie join in on 2 tunes, reuniting one of the toughest production combinations in Reggae history. The album is a progressive mix of international musical flavors, and features all live musicians using classic instruments (B3, Rhodes, Moog, Acoustic Piano, Simmons Drums, etc). This album solidifies Rose as one of the most progressive artists in Jamaican music history.

For over 25 years, Michael Rose has been recording and performing his brand of militant, hardcore Jamaican music to the delight of reggae fans around the world. As a solo artist & with Black Uhuru, "Ruff" Rose has achieved great success throughout his career, even as different Jamaican musical styles have phased in and out of popularity.
Perhaps the highest profile recognition came in 1984, when Michael Rose and the other Black Uhuru members (Duckie Simpson, Puma Jones, Sly Dunbar, and Robbie Shakespeare) won reggae's first Grammy award for the album, Anthem. With lead singer Michael Rose seemingly at the top of his game, he parted ways with Black Uhuru, with the intention of redefining his musical direction as a solo artist. A slew of solo albums followed.
