Truth is we don’t see enough 100% Reggae projects from Uganda. Artists will typically throw in one or two, but very few have dared to go all Reggae - we are not talking Dancehall by the way. EVON’s latest album, #NewMeNow, is a bold return to Reggae in a marketplace filled with POP and Dancehall.
Produced in Sweden, #NewMeNow features 10 tracks that stack up extremely well in terms of international Reggae quality. The album opens with EVON singing you through a day in the life in our home city on a song called Kampala, and closes with 2 dub mixes - Dub Me Now and Dub is Such a Beautiful Word. In between is where the depth of #NewMeNow lies - a journey through introspection, acceptance, positivity, empathy, joy, and love on songs like Let Life, Steps, Poor Man’s Shoes, and Allergic to Bad News.
Fezah is committed to investing in great live musicians, and we are very excited for Evon on the completion and release of her second album. We look forward to a great journey ahead as we present great talent from Uganda to fans here at home and around the world. - Elijah Kitaka, Fezah CEO
