Amoeba San Francisco - May 26th @ 5:00pm
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumental Reggae artist Alborosie joins us at Amoeba SF for a live set and signing of his new album, Destiny (Greensleeves), on release day, Friday, May 26th at 5pm! The performance is free and open to all-ages. Buy Destiny at Amoeba SF to participate in the signing after the set.
One of Reggae’s most successful touring artists, the Italian-born Alborosie is also a prolific recording artist with nine albums on the Greensleeves imprint to his credit. Alborosie is a true disciple of Roots Reggae and Dub music, and with each new project expands the boundaries of the music.
Alborosie's new album Destiny, which will be released on May 26th via Greensleeves Records, stays true to the artist's signature sound -- a blend of authentic Roots Rock Reggae and Dub with supreme songwriting skills and lyrical prowess. The lead single “Viral” is a bass-heavy slice of contemporary Rub-a-Dub with a conscious look at social media and its purpose in modern-day society. Despite the allure of virality, Alborosie rejects it for himself, choosing substance over gimmickry. The track is mixed and produced in Albo’s classic vintage style, with heavyweight bass, crisp drums and sirens, and effects echoing off into the abyss. Destiny boasts an impressive list of collaborators with featured guest performances from such luminaries as Kabaka Pyramid, Buju Banton, Jaz Elise, and Burro Banton, to name but a few. Exploring themes of faith, life, love and the power of music, Albo presents a body of work that is relatable and humble.
