The singer and songwriter of reggae music known as Ryveela has released his latest single track, “Ghetto Prayer.” The track has been released on the Reggae Fever Innovations independent record label with neither the participation nor support of the corporate music power structure. Loaded with soul, spirit, and the genuine tones of the roots reggae tradition, “Ghetto Prayer” by Ryveela is warm and healing music for all the people of the world.
Ryveela cites as main artistic influences such legends of the reggae sound as Sizzla, Capleton, Bob Marley and Luciano. Ryveela's own sound and style are somewhere between all of these, having a cutting-edge feel and an old-school groove and vibe which runs throughout and makes it move. This dichotomy makes sense, too, coming as it does from a singer from Point Hill, St. Catherine just north of Spanish Town in Jamaica.
But sound is only part of his art. A large portion of “Ghetto Prayer,” like all music from Ryveela, is in the theme and message. His official bio reads, “Cognizant of the many talents already out there, Ryveela is making his mark by deliverance of his own style of conscious energies mixed with social commentaries. His main aim is to make listeners sit up and take notice. Ryveela wants to reach to as many people as possible.”
Fame is not the star's main focus, either. Rather, he wants to effect positive change in the world around him.
“By challenging myself to find topics that are reality-based and singing them to my target audience, topics that aren't cliché, people will find my music inspirational,” writes Ryveela of his music.
Ryveela released his debut song, “Care No More” while previously signed to a Jamaican label. He writes music to help and mend, raise and support humanity at large.
“I am a conscious reggae artiste,” he writes, “who only promotes Love and respect to my fans. My songs have messages of upliftment and words of wisdom promoting hope to get out of our everyday struggles.”
Inspired by the voices of dancehall and reggae who came before, Ryveela is ready to take up his place among those who bring happiness through music everywhere. He writes of this, “Marley served as a voice in his time; music is meant for healing and good vibes. That's my mission, that's what I'm about.”
“Ghetto Prayer” by Ryveela is available online worldwide. Reggae fans should get in early.
