Tarrus Riley Adds More “BLEM”

Good day readers and fans of A Valid Review Magazine. We come to you from the wonderful island of Jamaica where after an eventful Sumfest and a very hot summer we’re fortunate to get our interview with the one and only Tarrus Riley. One of the most decorated Reggae singers in the last ten years. He is the son of an Icon and is also someone who has paved a whole different path and trail via his skills, hard work, and determination. His talent was never questioned. “He showed signs at an early age he had the skill and passion” according to Dean Frasier. Who has been very instrumental in Tarrus’s career. What haunted some industry heads, peers and skeptics was, does he have the heart for this? Ten years and more than three albums later along with several chart-topping singles, he’s answered his doubters.

His character work ethic and mannerisms have also somewhat set him apart. He’s always working either on tour or in the studio. He’s accepted himself as an ambassador for our culture. As a Rastafarian, he’s always entering each and every situation with love first and humanity following, all examples of his Majesty Haile Selassie.

The interview was set up during rehearsals. Somewhat uncommon but we wanted to explore his world as a hard-working singer and his daily routines. So it was more than just an interview it was an experience. All through the day, we witnessed a pro at work. Having his timing and his schedule down to a minute. He pays close attention to details and that was obvious during the whole rehearsal. One thing is for sure his band and team seems to have a level of comradery which most bands and teams yearn for or lack. We witnessed his timing and composure with his band proving his leadership qualities and growth.

We talked about relationships, marriage, growth, faith and work ethic. These are all subject matters he’s either sang about or we’ve witnessed vicariously through his father the late great Jimmy Riley. How he coped with the death of his father and how he has pushed forward. He’s thankful that his father gave him the opportunity to experience the music industry, admitting the bar was set a bit higher due to those facts.

He has a new project out now titled “BLEM”. To the average Jamaican, I think we already know what that means. If you don’t, it’s like adding something that gives an extra flavor or taste. It’s broken English for “blend”, His new project is just that! A blend of talented singers and musicians pushing the boundaries but still being authentic to themselves.

He has put together an array of songs which shows his eclectic side. He has done exactly that!  He included acts like Lila Ike, StoneBwoy to his shows, he’s embracing the now, these are the youths that are making their marks. It’s mature smart and encouraging to see Tarrus embrace these younger acts for his EP, he has duets with Carlos Alberto Calderon on “Feel It”.

I strongly recommend you go download, purchase or go see him live. He’s a class act and one the Island should be proud of. He’s represented us and himself like how a true artist, Rastafarian and humanitarian should.
