|We are pleased to share with you the latest single from Jamaican |
recording artist Mortimer called “Lightning“, released July 26th, via
Overstand Entertainment and Easy Star Records.
Produced by Winta James, “Lightning” is available now on all streaming platforms.
“Lightning” is a classic down-tempo reggae love song with a modern update. With a sparse rhythm section featuring a live Hammond organ and
rhythm guitar, joined later by live steel guitar, horns, and synthesizers,
which build to a passionate crescendo. A love song for the ages, Mortimer sings his way straight into hearts with his romantic, heart-felt lyrics.
“Lightning” is produced by Winta James whose production credits
include Damian Marley, Protoje, Chronixx, Rebelution, Tarrus Riley,
Alborosie, Kiko Bun, and more.
Mortimer is a Jamaican recording artist on the rise; a soulful singer with an enthralling voice, who is equally comfortable delivering traditional
roots reggae as well as contemporary Jamaican music, and who dances
between the two to reveal a sound that blends his old-soul sensibilities
with a progressive youthfulness. Mortimer’s voice effortlessly glides
between a raspy, smoky alto and a silky falsetto, with an unhurried
delivery that has become signature of his sound.
Mortimer has collaborated on two tracks with Reggae star Protoje,
featuring on “Protection“, the opening track to Protoje’s album
Ancient Future, and “Truths & Rights” from his Grammy-nominated
album A Matter Of Time.
Mortimer’s last single release “Careful” was selected by Apple Music
Editor’s as one of the “Best Of 2018“.
