Reggae singer, Guidance and singjay Ico Flamez, are getting major attention with their collaboration, By The Window, which is # 13 on the highly recognized Stepping Razor chart in Africa and still climbing.
Music insiders agree that these two Rastafarian artistes have surely done justice to this compelling love song, produced by Portmore-based producer, Shaka Indian. “It’s really cool to see these two Rasta artistes sincerely pouring out their hearts about a woman,” one radio disc jockey commented.
Unfortunately, despite giving their all, the woman leaves and the artistes are in misery, sitting at the window, hoping that one day she will return. It’s a theme which many persons – male and female – can identify with, and it’s all the more inspiring that it’s from a male perspective.
Although Sitting By The Window is Guidance and Ico Flamez’ only collaboration so far, they both have their solo repertoires which they have been unleashing at various stage shows across the island. They recently performed at the popular Plug ‘n’ Play at the Wyndham Hotel in New Kingston and also did a slot on morning television, both of which were very well received.
“We are really happy and humbled at the way how things have been shaping up. Lots of respect to the management team and to the fans. We ‘appreci-love’ all the support and we will always take the higher ground. Motherland, here we come,” declared Guidance, who is signed to Brown Brothers.
With a video now ready, shows lined up for the festive season and an Africa tour on the horizon, both artistes preparing to savour the sweet taste of success.
Known for his reality lyrics, Guidance is definitely not a pretender. Asked in a recent interview about the direction of his career, he stated that Bob Marley and the Wailers is his benchmark. Simply put, Guidance is aiming for the highest of the high in taking reggae music to the world.
His breakout single Love What You Got, signaled that a new voice in reggae music was ready to take the mantle. But the interesting thing is that Guidance isn’t new in the strictest sense of the word. The singer has been around for a minute, and even before Anthony B got his break, it was Guidance with whom he would par, as they both focused on their respective careers.
With more than a decade and a half of experience under his belt and several CD’s chock full of conscious songs, Guidance is now ready to really ruffle some feathers and let his voice be heard, both locally and internationally.
He is confident that under the management of Brown Brothers Production his career will soar to the very top.
Overflowing with energy and ready to take over any stage are words which best describe Ico Flamez. Never was a name more appropriate. He burns brightly and is scorching hot.
Ico Flamez, who names reggae superstar Buju Banton as one of his mentors, says he is ready to rock the world with music.
