Canada-based reggae artiste Steele has signed a distribution deal with VP Records for his fourth studio album Reality. The 15-track album which was executively produced by Fam Records Fitz Morrison is expected to make deep inroads into the reggae market.
Among the creative genius who took part in the project are Lloyd Campbell, Computer Paul, Sting Ray, Taddy P, Korner Stone Production and Steele’s own Mobs.
The 2012 JUNO nominee artiste who has also copped many other Canadian awards is excited about Reality and feels this is one of his best works yet. “As the album title suggests it’s all about everyday livity. There is definitely something for everyone. A few life lessons in songs, lovers’ rock and some smooth grooves,” said the singer about the album which will be available for digital download on September 18 through over 300 reggae digital ports and VP Records retail locations and all leading record stores.
In other news the Steele will be in action at the upcoming Cornwall College Old Boys Association dinner and dance.
“I’m very proud and honoured to be invited to perform. Cornwall College has definitely created many fun memories for me, when I remember the sometimes fierce football rivalry between Cornwall and my former school Rusea High; those were crazy times, now I laugh about it. More importantly the fact that once again another past student body is giving back to an institution that forged for so many the path to success. It’s truly an honour,” he said of his expected performance.
Born Mark Steele in Lucea, Hanover he has been impacting Canada’s music scene since 1992. Among the many songs he has released over the years are Jah is My Strength, Slave Driver and What’s Wrong Wid Wi.
