Patricia Meschino of Billboard Magazine stated,
“Tarrus Riley’s Love Situation is a stunning tribute to Jamaican rock steady as well as a landmark career recording. The use of classic Jamaican rhythms, which are given renewed luster through the immaculate production of Dean Fraser and Shane Brown, as well as the artist’s superb, deeply affecting singing and songwriting yields an irresistible album that may finally bring Tarrus and by extension, contemporary Jamaican reggae, a much deserved, widespread audience throughout North America.”
Currently on his Love Situation tour, Tarrus Riley is performing to large crowds and numerous sold out venues. Most recently, Tarrus Riley headlined the sold out, 1st annual Ladies Ball in Queens, NY and his stellar performance was well received.
“The Black Soil Band and Tarrus Riley, was just exceptional. The sound of the band was clean and Tarrus Riley was just great, his performance was of true talent and entertainment.” says Sherice McKenzie (member of the audience).
During his performances Tarrus Riley has been receiving great crowd responses when performing his first single, ‘Dem A Watch’ (Wanna see us break up) off his ‘Love Situation’ album. It is evident that this socially charged tune will be one of Tarrus Riley’s next big hit, a video for the single is in the works so stay tuned!
“Love Situation is an album for all lovers of music especially reggae, says Cherice Fuller, entertainment blogger. It takes you back to the 1960s, when Rocksteady was prominent in the Jamaican dance halls, and maybe the most important time in Jamaican history some may argue. Tarrus Riley and his team paid tribute to Rocksteady and a real good job they did”.
As Tarrus Riley continues his Love Situation Tour we take the time out to say Congratulations to the entire team and thanks to the fans for making this album #1.
