ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heaven On Earth is a commentary on the current and historical social constructs that affect Jamaica, and it reflects on the many hardships and triumphs that people of African descent all over the world share. Through this album, The No-Maddz' activism is one of artistic celebration, economic advancement, and the nurturing of the beauty of humanity. The songs caress, jab, cajole, and rock with lighthearted, sometimes comedic beds of rhymes, rhythms and melodies that are heavy with the teachings and encouragements of the likes of HIM Haile Selassie, Marcus Garvey, and Nelson Mandela.

The No-Maddz is a Jamaican Art Collective and Rootz Reggae Dub Poetry band comprised of the duo: Sheldon “Sheppie” Shepherd and Everaldo “Evie” Creary. Both are recipients of the prestigious Jamaican Prime Minister’s Youth Award for Excellence in Arts and Culture. They each are also accomplished screen and stage actors. Their reggae sound is a fusion of a unique dub poetry style with multiple music genres and it carries the spirit of Jamaica’s Roots music. In addition to performing at major Reggae festivals at home in Jamaica, The No-Maddz have successfully toured Asia, Europe, and the United States.
