Neopolitan is much like the ice cream it is named after. It’ s a mixture of Reggae, Electro, Disco, Soul, Hip-Hop, Rock, Dubstep, and R&B, flavors all blended into one creamy collection. I made Neopolitan to show people that it is ok to be yourself, to celebrate differences, and to embrace more than ONE kind of music. People learn the best through music, and Neopolitan presents a new way to grasp the concept of a “diverse” album and artist. The 13 song album album should take you on a journey from track to track and is meant to be listened to like a record, in one sitting.
When I sat down to conceptualize the Neopolitan album, I realized with my given “Jaminglican” (Jamaican, English, and American) heritage, that I was in a unique position to represent a significantly large group of people authentically. Having spent my entire life as a soccer player in the U.S. and abroad, I wanted the album to mirror the workings of the World Cup, and its function to bring people together from all parts of the globe. Soccer exposed me to many cultures and I felt it was only appropriate that I share my experiences through another universal language, music. Having studied audio engineering while at University, and working in a few studios, I knew that the sonic quality of the album had to be impeccable. A large part of the experience for me, was about how ‘it sounded’. In turn, I spent many sleepless night mixing and mastering to the best of my ability, with the equipment I had. I couldn’t be happier with how closely I followed the ‘conception to completion’ process. In all, I will forever be proud of this collection of work as my first studio album. Please, fulljoy the sounds of the past, the present and the future, Neopolitan.
