JONATHAN EMILE – TRY A LIKKLE MORE
Jamaican-Canadian singer/songwriter Jonathan Emile drops a brand new official video for “Try A Likkle More”, a track from his debut reggae album “Spaces-In-Between”. Directed by Pete Beng, the video is an ode to the Jamaican diaspora that explores the concepts of family, love, and generational memory.
The singer explains, “the video explores Jamaica and its lush abundance through the directors lens with vivid colors and brightness as he captures all of the beautiful memories. This is what carefree Negril looks like.” He continues, “in the lyrics, I play on the idea of time and love as a participatory action rather than an emotion or a passive state. The island itself is a color-filled phenomenological experience. The roots riddim with its easy skank and swaying guitar and bass are set at the speed of rural Jamaica. You can hear the one drop against the slow crash of waves. The guitar melody opens and closes the song like a story book.”
The “Spaces-In-Between” album retraces the eras of Jamaican music from the ‘60s to the ‘90s, from ska to rocksteady and lovers rock to dancehall. It’s released on January 24th via the artist’s own MindPeaceLove label, and distributed through Tuff Gong International.
