Having become a household name in the Dutch Caribbean island of Surinam and gained marginal recognition throughout the international Reggae music scene, Miriam Simone is relentless in her pursuit to share her message with the masses. Her latest single and video release entitled ‘Rivers’ is set to take her to new heights. The songstress whose hallmark is synonymous with positivity, upliftment and truth, also shares these sentiments in her latest single. According to a recent article published in the Jamaican Observer newspaper, Simone stated that she hopes ‘Rivers’ will inspire audiences to “show more love and respect for each other while valuing the beauty of Mother Earth”.
Rivers’ is the first single release from her debut English speaking album – Mount Zion, scheduled for release later this year. Mount Zion is produced by D ‘Decko’ Douglas and M ‘Morro’ Nijhove of Dredda Records, also known for productions such as the latest Liberation 20 EP from Ziggi Ricado. Simone and her production team were very cautious in selecting this as her successive release, hoping to build on the success of her previous project, ‘Dem A Chat’, which received international radio airplay and features on prime-time television throughout various Caribbean islands. It is also anticipated that with extra push in the mainstream media across European, this project will break her into new markets and expose her to a wider fan base. So far ‘Rivers’ has been doing just that according to positive feedback from Djs and fans alike.
