“What connected me to Island Stage initially and what continues to motivate me to work with the team is their unrelenting commitment to real authentic reggae music. Island Stage is very responsive, they think creatively, and they work professionally; they are focused solely on the task of promoting this beautiful music.”

-Harrison Stafford -Groundation Founder and Lead Singer



“Island Stage humbly serves the reggae community with their coverage of the genre’s greats on the website and in the magazine. The animated video work they’ve produced pays special attention to details that are crucial to both the fans and artist alike. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the final results.”
– Brian Greenspoon

“I highly recommend Ms. Underwood and Island Stage Magazine. Her lifelong devotion to Reggae music inspires Island Stage as it breaks new ground in acknowledging talented artists who may be marginalized within the industry. For Ms. Underwood, the magazine is one step in her vision to support the music industry in Jamaica, and to build a sustainable business model, including professional support and branding for emerging artists as well as established artists.

Island Stage has set a higher standard for coverage of Reggae and World Beat music, thanks to high quality photography and writing, along with intimate portraits, exclusive interviews and timely reporting.”

“Professionalism, courteous and knowledgeable is the best way that I can describe not only Island Stage Magazine itself, but most importantly the person at the helm and its staff. In this roller coaster entertainment business, crossing paths and getting to network with such entities make this business easier to navigate. If you are a music lover, cover to cover you will get to experience your favorite artist and discover new gems, and If you are a small-business owner, label or artist looking to maximize your advertising dollars and hit your target audience, Island Stage Magazine should be part of your marketing mix.”

-Malaika Lepine

Afro-Caribbean manager at ONErpm, and Lead Publicist at MPR Consulting


“As an artist one the best feelings is to be recognized for your work organically, and Island Stage Magazine has proven time and time again that they love and support music from an organic level. I was grateful to see my name among others as an up and coming Reggae artist in a magazine the Caliber of Island Stage. It’s one of those moments I will never forget. Blessings to Ms. Susan and the whole team.”
