Having known her hard work and dedication would one day bring her closer to her goals reggae recording artist Ishawna is finally coming into her own, bringing a fresh new image and bright edgy sound to the local music fraternity.
A member of the Solid Agency camp Ishawna reached yet another milestone in her career when she performed for the first time at the Excellence in Music and Entertainment EME Award Ceremony last Saturday evening. “I performed “Number One” as a Tribute to legend Gregory Isaacs and it was really a wonderful experience performing at an award show for the first time. I look at the EME as our own because it focus on our dancehall and reggae genre which is important to the growth of the industry”.
Not to be out done Ishawna executed a fabulous red carpet entrance, wearing a stunning short dress courtesy of French Couture who styled her for the evening, leaving many to wonder if she is the next fashionista to rule the scene. “My image is just as important as my music so I welcome all compliments on my sense of style”.
With the international market already warming up to her sound Ishawna is preparing herself for all opportunities which may present themselves this year. “I’ve been getting alot of good publicity overseas and I see where a few things are already manifesting and others are in the pipeline so the goal is to make the most of every opportunity”.
Currently promoting her new single Ishawna is happy with the success of her mega hit single Legendary and is already contemplating a follow up. “I shot a video for Legendary in November with director Icey Jace and it became the talk of the the town, it really launch me out their as an artist and had everyone using the word Legendary to describe something good especially the female fans its like an epidemic, so I coming into 2011 we did some more recordings and now I have 3 new singles out. I have an acoustic ballad called “Love” and a sexy track called “Let You In” which I did for Jam 2 Records and there is that wicked collab “Do It” with Busy Signal which I recorded for Baby G. My single with Taz called “New Page” is also getting alot of radio rotation”.
With the Easter season only a few weeks away Ishawna has already accumulated several show dates and will be working on other projects for producers Payday Music, Chimney Records, Jam 2 and Jah Snow Cone Productions in the near future.
