If music was a family, Gospel would be the prim auntie of Reggae; even though they are related, they don’t necessarily have a lot to do with each other! With Songs From Zion, the two are brought closer together, as the eleven tracks on the album combine these genres in a way that’s both natural and revealing. The artist behind this feat is Kristine Alicia, a singer who was born in Jamaica but grew up in Florida, where she lives until today. After being a background singer for many years, she first stirred some interest in 2007 with her debut Get Ready, which leans heavy on Gospel but touches Reggae beats as well. Ten years later, with an exceptional producer at her side, this approach is brought to perfection: Rory “Stone Love” Gilligan made sure that Songs From Zion is a true musical blessing.
