(PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD) --It's authentic, it's soulful, it's roots, rock reggae! These words best describe the new reggae track, "What is to be" by Marley Palmer.
The Damion Preston produced track has a mellow and groovy reggae sound, synonymous to the vintage sounds of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and other well-loved pioneers of the genre. The heavy influence of 70s roots reggae is evident in the instrumentation of the production, giving you a feeling of nostalgia as Marley’s vocals rides on pulse of the infectious bass line. The catchy chorus and soulful melody compliments Palmer's laid back personality and singing style allowing the listener to properly soak in the positive message of song.
“This track is just the way I see things at this point in my life, staring through spiritual lenses, it's a depiction of how things happen by the mystical powers of God governing the universe, what is to be will always be," Palmer said.
Marley Bernard Palmer was born and raised in Matura Village, the place that inspires many of his compositions. Palmer, an alto sax musician with the Trinidad and Tobago Prison Service Band, has been exposed to and experimented with different genres of music over the years. A former participant in ragga soca competitions held in his hometown, Palmer has shared the stage with several international acts. He also collaborated with local artistes such Ziggy Rankin and veteran calypsonian, Poser.
