…But at the heart of it all, ORieL path was already written, and using his voice to share his life journey took precedence. At the heart of it all, Reggae spoke to his musical soul, he describes his music as ‘’Reggae/Fusion’’ which is mostly reggae fused with the sound of Jazz, RnB, Rock, Blues and Hip Hop.
Most of the world equates the genre of reggae music as attributed to Jamaican natives. As a reggae singer born in Dominica, do you find that you are taken as serious as if you were Jamaican born.
ORieL: Yes, because my music deals with serious issues and the people in Jamaica and around the world that’s dealing with these issues will always relate to my music. Music is constantly evolving so the location where the songs are made or the origin of the genre doesn’t really have a great impact when it comes to a song. In the last couple decades music has moved from local to international. Its all one big community now, so if a song connects with someone then they listen to it no matter where it comes from .
