Jamaica feierer 50 års selvstendighet I august 2012. I denne annledningen er Knirckefritt og J.A.M Promotion veldig stolte av å presentere Tarrus Riley med Blak Soil Band featuring Dean Fraser. Tarrus Riley som er en av de offisielle representantene for feiringen “Jamaica 50”, skal spille store konserter rundt om i hele verden og det gleder oss stort at han også tar turen til Oslo; Torsdag den 16. August på Cosmopolit. Tarrus Riley er av de fremste representantene forRoots og Conscious Reggae i vår tid og vi forventer et show av klassisk kvalitets Reggae.
There is no doubt about Tarrus Riley being THE Jamaican reggae star of our times, and he obviously is the artist who deserves the most the title of heir of roots and conscious Reggae!
Son of Jimmy Riley, a famous Jamaican singer of the 70s, Tarrus recorded his first single as a teenager and started as a DJ. Produced by the legendary saxophonist Dean Fraser, his debut album Challenges (2004) was a decisive step into the Jamaican scene. With the international hits She's Royal and Beware, released on the album Parables (2007), Tarrus became one of the most promising artists of the island. Riley came back in 2009 with the album Contagious and its massive hit Good Girl Gone Bad, featuring Konshens, that led him to break the international charts and established him as the Jamaican artist of our times.
On stage, backed by Dean Fraser & the Blak Soil Band during his last three tours all over Europe, his live performances at the biggest festivals (Printemps de Bourges, Artefact in 2012, Paleo Festival, Dour and Roskilde Festival in 2011 ...), were widely acclaimed.
