The newest single from Easy Star Presents JonQuan And Associates. On “Lean,” JonQuan enlists Danny Rebel of the Canadian Reggae band Danny Rebel & the KGB.
About:Though JonQuan is relatively new to the reggae scene, you’d never know it by listening to the music on the upcoming EASY STAR PRESENTS: JONQUAN & ASSOCIATES. Working closely with two-time GRAMMY winner Victor Rice (Easy Star All-Stars, Bixiga 70, Ticklah), JonQuan has fashioned an album’s worth of brand-new tunes that evoke the power and soul of the golden age of reggae. These tracks are being released as singles (with dub versions mixed by Rice) over the course of the next few months, culminating in an album release in April 2022.
“Danny Rebel of Danny Rebel and the KGB is a fixture in the ska and reggae scene as well as being an insane painter. His smooth choice of falsetto echoes Junior Murvin’s classic style with harmonies and vibes like dirt. What a pleasure having my friend Danny on the project.. lots more to come from him in the future.” JonQuan
