Allow me to introduce you to Jamaican recording artiste Neil Amos, who since his introduction to the music industry has worked with major names like King Yellowman, Beenie Man, and Josey Wales to name a few.
Neil Amos has an excellent eye and vision for music. His mission for the last 12 years has been about pumping out hit songs and artists under the Free Willy Records label.
This from a young man who aspired to be in the music industry from the tender age of 6 and went to pursue that dream with his father after graduating high school. He later fell quickly and deeply in love with becoming an artiste instead of being behind the scenes creating hits for others. Neil always had an aptitude for the music and had many notebooks piled high with songs he wrote in his lunch break as a kid to entertain his friends. He spent most of his afternoons at the studio after school. As time progressed, so did his skills and his love for music. He sat diligently everyday learning how to create music as the engineers did in the studio.
As time progressed, he realized that his place in the music industry was not behind the scenes creating music but visible, to the people, to the world where he can clearly express his music and message, and with that, he decided to pursue his new mission to bring something new to the music industry as Neil Amos.
He moved on to make his first album entitled ‘I am Joy’ which is still in the works for 2010. He has been travelling, gaining recognition in other countries as well as opportunities to show his face to the public as much as possible. As a solo artist, he creates a sound unique to Jamaica and reminiscent of his own style and beliefs. He wields the ability to analyze music and add that missing element to make it magnificent.
Now at the stage in his Life where he is ready to be free to the globe, Neil has a vision of musical harmony and success in all his future albums and endeavours.
The Jamaican music industry has done it yet again with international diamond-selling reggae artiste Shaggy and singer Alaine coming together for their collaboration “For Your Eyes Only”. The track produced by Tony ‘CD’ Kelly one of music’s top hit makers. His sound has been instrumental in creating hit songs for popular dancehall/reggae artists like Sean Paul, Shaggy, Wayne Wonder, Super Cat, and Beenie Man to name a few. He has also done work with artists like DMX, Foxy Brown, Cypress Hill, Capone & Noreaga, Scarface, and Nokio of Dru Hill. The song “For Your Eyes Only” released by the K-Licious label was indeed created for the international market with sounds that captivated everyone’s ears with orgasmic musical pleasure.?
The video directed by international video director Jason “JAYWILL” Williams saw the video being shot in studio and produced by Carleene Samuels. The video without a doubt is as appealing to the eyes as is to the ears with styling by Stanley & Empress Boutique(S&E), Camesha Powell of POSHE and upcoming stylist Kathy, the images translated well on film. From the start, the style of the video could have been seen and its nothing to the imagination that the concept was planned out well. Alaine was styled by Stanley & Empress Boutique(S&E) and Kathy. While the rest of the cast was styled by local designer Camesha Powell. When asked what it was like to style Alaine, Nadia Stanley of S&E was eager to share her experience working with the songbird as she stated, “It was great, S&E along with Kathy with help from Alaine searched for the right artistic looks for the video, and through the styling she stood out like the star she is,” she further gleed with pleasure to add "the video was artistic, abstract and futuristic all at the same time."
The video was launched last Thursday to much anticipation from the general public for the simulcast that would have taken place on major media networks in Jamaica. The launch itself was not to be overlooked as LIME Jamaica used the opportunity the launched their latest product mobile TV, that is also featured in the music video. Indeed another great production by the Jamaican entertainment fraternity and another A grade project from Jay Will.
She is the current Queen of the Dancehall Industry with mega hits under her belt like “I Got Your Man” and “Man is the Least” and many others. This dynamic and versatile queen can do no wrong according her fans and many of the music industry's legends and has survived many storms in the industry to maintain the top position. Lady Saw is undoubtedly a woman to be reckoned with. Her new album “My Way”, now in major record stores, is a true testament of her long-lasting career with hits like the popular “Party Till December” which she recently shot a video for at the Fiction Lounge in St.Andrew, Jamaica.
The video was directed by international video director Jason “Jay Will” Williams and edited by Kao:Arts the video has a feel of a high energy club party vibes with hundreds of Jamaica’s leading and upcoming dancers being featured throughout with special segments by the ladies of ‘Upstage Dancers’ and Whiteout Dancers. The director Jay Will must be commended for creating what can be easily said a free-spirited video where the viewer can just get into the party mood even if the video is on mute. The concept of the video for a lack of a better word is ‘wicked’ as said by a group of young adults that viewed the video. In the video, Lady Saw's male lead is seen going out with his friend with the expectation that she remains at home based on the perception she gives, but low and behold, she is off to the club with her friend and parties the night away.
