Music is a favorite thing of mine. I listen to tons of CDs on my computer and in my car. I love to listen to great music and often find great musicians that stand out. Recently I was introduced to a unique new artist and I love listening to her music! Jamaican-born, Florida-based reggae sensation Etana. Her sound is a flavorful blend of Roots, Reggae, Folk, Soul, and Jazz. She stands out on all levels. Let’s call Etana the new queen of reggae!
Shauna McKenzie (better known as Etana) is a soulful singer and songwriter.
–Etana has achieved international and national stardom with her fifth album, Reggae Forever, that debuted on the Billboard Reggae Chart at number one.
–The fourth album, I Rise, also debuted on the Billboard Reggae Chart at number one as well as her album, Better Tomorrow debuted the Billboard Reggae Chart at number seven.
–Her album, Free Expressions and debut album, The Strong One reached the Billboard Reggae Charts.
—The Strong One garnered many awards including the Album of the Year honors at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) in New York City and at the Excellence in Music and Entertainment Awards or known as the EME Awards in Kingston.
–Etana was also nominated as Best New Reggae Artist at London’s annual MOBO Awards in 2008.
–Etana’s Reggae Forever album is nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.
–Etana makes history as the first female with back-to-back top albums on the Billboard Reggae Chart.
—Etana is the first woman in 21 years to be nominated for a Grammy in the Best Reggae Album category.
(The last time a female artist was nominated in that category was Sister Carol who was nominated in 1997!)
She is a rising artist with an impeccable voice. Reggae Forever is a spectacular album filled with incredible songs. This album is one that you’ll love and you can dance to it!
The Reggae Forever album is distributed by Tad’s Records. Reggae Forever is available on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/reggae-forever/1337551717
Check out Etana and her music video from her single “Spread Love” from the Reggae Forever album.
