Jamaica’s inspiring Reggae/Dancehall artiste Ryveela is all set on carving his own niche in the music industry. Cognizant of the many talents already out there, Ryveela is making his mark by deliverance of his own style of conscious energies, mixed with social commentaries. His main aim is to make listeners sit up and take notice.
Ryveela wants to reach to as many people as possible. He said he will accomplish this: “By challenging myself to find topics that are reality based and singing them to my target audience. Also topics that aren’t clichéd and that people will find inspirational”. This is how Ryveela sees his songs.
Hailing from the community of Rennals District, St Catherine; the warm breeze would carry his voice for miles. Fellow artiste “Fabbi” was the influence that sparked Ryveela’s interest in becoming an artiste. Now with other artistes such as Sizzla, Capleton, Bob Marley, Luciano and Bounty Killer as his inspiration, Ryveela plans to use hard work and determination to climb to the heights of those he looks up to.
Ryveela recorded his first song in 2005 entitled “Care No More”, produced by Desmond Squire and Trevor Reign on the Trione Triann record label. This was the moment that would set the tone for what was to follow. Riding this wave of progression, Ryveela hit it hot again by winning the deejay contest at “Reggae Sunsplash” held in Richmond, St Ann.
The response so far for Ryveela is so inspiring. If you asked Ryveela to describe himself he would say “Energetic, Lyrical and Inspirational, this coupled with a very distinctive sound presented by the artiste for the people”. “Marley served as a voice in his time, music is meant for healing and good vibes. That’s my mission, that’s what I’m about,” he said.
If ever there was a time that people needed uplifting and encouraging songs, then that time has arrived with the messenger called Ryveela.
Ryveela’s catalogue includes; “Care No More”, “Scortch”, “Ghetto Prayer”, and most recently “Black Man’s Paradise” and “Can’t Convince Her”.
