Released January 29th, 2019 #JulianMarley #AsIAm still topping charts 🔊 #3 on this week #REGGAE #BILLBOARD CHART !
Julian began recording As I Am at Kingston’s Tuff Gong Studios… From that initial session, @julianrmarley has crafted a heartfelt, diversified album that honors his love of live instrumentation and conveys the musical passion he heard in his earliest influences.” - Patricia Meschino for #Billboard Magazine
Covering a wide spectrum of musical #beats and themes ranging from raw one drop roots, reggae and ska it's an album filled with upliftment, inspiration, a deep sense of #spirituality and questions unanswered, questions like why we are living in a war zone home and abroad at the hands s of politicians? “ - #DJ745 for #WorldAReggae
# lyrics are from the perspective of roots reggae music that is reaching out around the world bringing the message of hope and freedom, with memorable lines like “Travel every #ocean , ocean, with them redemption songs”. This is a great opening track with a catchy beat and a wicked bass line. “Hey Jack”, the second track is about #friendship and trust, a common theme nowadays in many reggae songs…” - Jen Cheshire for #IslandStageMagazine
This may explain why a couple of tracks from the new album feature #JimiHendrix style rock guitar, although it’s skillfully integrated within the whole Julian himself plays organ, #guitar and #drums … Magic Of #Love is again dramatic, with strings and soaring lead guitar accompanying what I think is his best-ever vocal performance, and which he says came from “a special place” in his heart. “Please save us from this madness,” he pleads, in lyrics that are essentially optimistic, despite telling of hardship.” - John Masouri for #EchoesMagazine
