New York – Since the release of his new album, reggae crooner Pressure Buss Pipe has been relentlessly spreading his sounds, in and out of the islands. Aptly titled after his international breakout hit “Love and Affection,” the album features 16 tracks that are sure to keep ears buzzing for decades to come.
Hailing from the U.S. Virgin Islands, Pressure records his music in Kingston, Jamaica, under the direction of label head and executive producer Don Corleon. Fusing his American upbringing with island heritage, Pressure presents a fusion of reggae and lover’s rock that has many comparing him to reggae great Sizzla Kalonji. He has earned an instant liking from fans by sticking to conscious and romantic tunes, often singing of the plight of the poor, or of lovers.
Pressure now continues album promotion with tours scheduled for Europe and Japan come this summer. He will also be hitting numerous island nations including Trinidad, St. Kitts, the Caymans, and also New York in early May, where he’s nominated for “Most Promising Entertainer” in the 2008 International Reggae and World Music Awards, on May 4 at the Apollo Theater.
