Suckarie When The Trumpet Sounds


When The Trumpet sounds, the debut album from the eclectically prolific writer/musician, Suckarie, is a collection of music about love. As he describes it, “love comes in many different forms”.

This personal view is creatively evident in his lyrics, where each song takes you on a vivid journey through his thoughts and emotions about those he once loved and those forever beloved. From relationships with significant others, to family and friends, his soulful lyrics paints the perfect landscape every consumer will relate to. The first track, “Our Love”, a song detailing his deep proclivity for a woman he met through a mutual friend at one of his shows, leaves his audience rooting for the success of their love connection with every eloquent lyric.

The album is consummated with the 12th track, “Favorite Song”, an acoustic version to track #8. The song is a poetic ode to a loved one, missed so deeply, that their beautiful memories still powerfully lingers, especially when the nostalgic “favorite song” of this companion is played. Suckarie hopes this inceptive album provides a deeper look into his life for his loyal fans and those to come.

Born in St. Andrew Jamaica, music was always going to be Suckarie’s destination. From an early age, it was clear that music was embedded in his DNA. “When I couldn’t find him, all I would have to do is listen closely and I’d hear him in a cupboard somewhere playing drums on pots and pans” said his mom.

After moving to New York, Suckarie started putting his passion for music to work, along with his chart topping, internationally recognized band, New Kingston. Following years of touring the world and working with countless artists, he steps into the light with new music and collaborations as a solo creative, telling his story, his way!

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.
