Morgan Heritage released their tenth studio album, Strictly Roots, on April 21st, 2015, which went to #1 on both the iTunes and Billboard Reggae Album Charts. The album is currently #2 on the Roots Music Report Caribbean and Reggae Chart. Roots Music is the number one independent music chart in the world.
The new album, Strictly Roots, features a wide variety of guest performers including platinum selling pop/dancehall phenomenon, Shaggy; American reggae and R&B vocalist, J Boog; third generation ambassadors from the Morgan and Marley families, Jemere Morgan and Jo Mersa Marley; reggae sensation, Chronixx; lead singer Eric Rachmany from rock, world and reggae band, Rebelution; and Bobby Lee from the American Grammy-nominated pop reggae band, SOJA.
What makes Morgan Heritage world-renowned for their live performances is that each night’s highlight is different. The story has been sung time and time again, yet it leaves musical patrons with a new outlook and feeling. Siblings Peetah Morgan (vocals), Una Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Gramps Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Lukes Morgan (rhythm guitar) and Mr. Mojo Morgan (percussion/vocals) pour every bit of themselves into their stage show, proving that Reggae can be a religious experience in the right hands.
