This album delivers the very best of me into the hearts of the people who influenced it all and I want to thank you all for your support.”
“We knew Hezron was destined to become a great reggae singer due to his dedication and work ethic,” states Tad Dawkins, President of Tad’s Record. “Apart from his voice, the special ingredient that makes Hezron stand out is his commitment to connect with the Jamaican grass root. He reminds me of a young Dennis Brown with his soulful voice, and of course the ladies just love his lovers’ rock lyrics.”
