No matter how challenging life gets, or no matter what we face in life, we need to continue to give thanks for the blessings we have. We need to continue to spread the love, the joy and happiness, and see Christmas through the eyes of a child…see Christmas everywhere.

I wanted to write a song that was reminiscent of the purity of Christmas, the kind of Christmas that is somewhat preserved through the innocent and grateful eyes of a child. I also wanted to write a song that’s full of hope. A song that is rich with the fund memories and happiness that Christmas represented for us, and for every child around the world.

When I wrote this song, I closed my eyes, and immediately, vivid images of my childhood began to cascade through the corners of my mind. With each memory, the pure sentiments of Christmas came alive to me. I remembered the festivities, the Christmas spirit, the Christmas breeze, the anticipation, the elation, the joy, and the laughter, which was an integral part of the soundtrack of our lives.

We didn’t have much, but we were rich in love! We were also very grateful for the little that we had.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
