My first encounter with Jamaican vocalist Kristine Alicia was two years ago when she was featured on Rory Stone Love’s two one riddim compilations Braveheart and Zeen. She was responsible for two of the strongest cuts on those and I was blown away by her strong and confident voice.
Now her new album has been put out and with this set she relaunches her career with a rootsy sound. And the first single off the album is Roll It, a tribute to all reggae DJs who have helped the genre to reach a global audience. Roll It is easy-going with a laid-back atmosphere. The full album shows a different side of Kristine Alice. A more melancholic side.
Songs From Zion is a stunning set. I dare to say that it’s breathtaking from start to finish and I have had it on repeat for several days.
