Reggae Interviews talks with Samory I
DJ 745 sat down with Samory I – one of Jamaica’s most promising reggae artists to watch, to learn about his eagerly-awaited solo debut album Strength released late in 2023 via Overstand Entertainment and Easy Star Records. The LP follows Black Gold, his 2017 collaborative album with the iconic producer Rory “Stonelove” Gilligan.

Named after Samory I’s affectionate moniker for his son, Strength is an 11-track storied opus produced by esteemed Jamaican producer Winta James, whose credits include hits with Protoje, Chronixx and Damian Marley. Samory I said the LP “represents the struggles I’ve overcome, both mentally and physically.”

Growing up in Kencot, a rougher neighborhood in Kingston, Jamaica, he faced many adversities and found reggae music as a form of salvation. He used his voice as both an instrument and vehicle for social change in his community. The album is a true reflection of its title, proving that courage and love prevails above all. Interview recorded at Dubwise Cafe in Kingston, Jamaica
