Down To Earth Rhythms Of Roots Rock Reggae

Blazin' Reggae Vibes - Ep. 006 - Down To Earth Rhythms Of Roots Rock Reggae Poster

We’ll be pointing the spotlight on two artists this week, Hempress Sativa and Sista Gracy.  I have been listening to Hempress Sativa’s latest album “Unconquerebel” and I really enjoy the entire album. The songs “Twisted Sheets” and “Revolution” really captured my attention so I’ve been playing them a lot.

Jamaica-Gleaner

Kerida Johnson, known as Hempress Sativa, was born to Rastafarian parents Doris-Ray Johnson and legendary Jamaican selector/musician Albert ‘Ilawi Malawi’ Johnson of the Jah Love Sound System.
It was her exposure to music at home that sharpened her skills and has manifested today in her expressive writing and delivery.
The instant she steps on to a stage, she commands the attention and respect of the audience, with an uncanny ability to keep all listening as they absorb her every word and rhyme.
– Jamaica-Gleaner
