Reggae Legend, Icon and Queen Judy Mowatt will celebrate the release of Colin Levy’s album Unleashed for two dates: Montreal on Saturday April 30th at Le Belmont (4483 Boulevard St. Laurent) at 10 pm and in Toronto on Sunday May 1st at the Opera House (735 Queen St. E.) at 7 pm.
The Living legend, who rose to fame as a backing vocalist for Bob Marley and member of the I-Threes, and after a successful solo career, will perform in Toronto at the infamous Opera House. Included in her early evening performance will be hit singles “Many Are Called,” “Black Woman” and “Sister’s Chant.”
Ms. Mowatt’s performance is a rare and an exclusive engagement, and supportive to Colin and his musical mission via Unleashed. “When Colin called and asked me to perform for his album launch, I said yes right away. He always makes positive music, and I gladly lend my voice to that movement. See you soon Montreal and Toronto!”
After taking 2 years off from making music, Colin Levy is ready to take center stage. Backed by the Hardcore band, Colin will perform the lead single from his album, “Smile” which was produced by Willie Lindo and Dean Fraser. Serviced to radio DJs around the world, it has become one of the most requested songs by fans. In addition to “Smile,” fans in both cities will hear music produced by Stephen Marley (“Forever Praising Jah”), Willie Lindo (“Life”) and Dean Fraser “”One Chance”).
The 17 track disc features guest appearances by Marcia Griffiths (“One Chance”), Lady Saw (“Do It Again”), Heather Cummings (“Lover’s Converse”), Anthony B (“West Best”), Lutan Fyah (“Bad Habit”), Turbulence and G. Forest (“Good Newz”). When asked about the recording with such greats, Colin shared “the vibrations we felt when making these songs together helped take the music to another level. We didn’t just make music, we made an imprint that people can take with them to feel good – day or night” and fans agree! Feedback by way of comments on the artists social media pages suggest that not only do they like the lead single “Smile,” they placed their pre-orders for the album feeling instinctively it has music they want to hear.
Joining Colin on stage to celebrate the launch of Unleashed in both Montreal and Toronto are JUNO Award winners Exco Levi and Mikey Dangerous, Leroy Gibbons, Fire Lion, Jah Cutta, Christini and Totally Blaze.
