Gramps Morgan is a GRAMMY-winning reggae artist with a love of country music so deep, he dropped everything to move to Nashville, Tennessee nearly a decade ago. His latest album Positive Vibration blends the best of both genres with songs that have a tropical island feel, with the added beauty of country instruments like the steel guitar and dobro.
There are 15 tracks with upbeat songs like “Float Ya Boat” featuring Morgan’s good friend Shaggy, love/tribute songs to include “A Woman Like You” and “Paradise” with India Arie, and the emotional, must-hear song honouring those we’ve lost called “People Like You.”
Morgan recorded the aptly named Positive Vibration album in the hopes of offering comfort, and perhaps bringing joy and inspiration during these challenging times.
“The one thing we all have in common,” he says, “is that in the past 18 months we’ve all been going through the same thing, trying to survive, trying to figure things out. We’re afraid, we’re wondering what’s going to happen in our lives. It’s the one time in history we can all relate, you know? So, I believe it’s my duty as a musician to bring joy, upliftment, and reassurance.”
