Tradition Man Wolo – ‘Reggae Man’
‘Reggae Man’ is the excellent latest album from Renton-based artist, Tradition Man Wolo. It is a reggae release that remakes the songs of British-Irish singer-songwriter Chris de Burgh.
‘Come Home’ opens the release, and the reggae vibe pulsates through instantly. We adore Tradition Man Wolo’s vocal performance, which is warm and inviting, effortlessly drawing the listener in.
The classic song ‘The Lady in Red’ is unrecognisable from the opening. However, as the vocals enter, the familiar song returns with Tradition Man Wolo’s unique character, twists and turns.
‘This Feeling’ is a stand out track. It features an upbeat vibe with an addictive bass-line. We love the infectious melodic tones that fill the sonic spectrum with vivid colour and unforgettable hooks.
Tradition Man Wolo describes the release, “Reggae Man is a multi-themed album, covering roots and consciousness (Come Home, Back Again), intellectual (Book Of Rules), love (This Your Rebound Love, Lady In Red) and playfulness/party (This Feeling, Reggae Man Skank)… I want people to embrace the breadth of the album and the genre.”
Bobby Roy/Mike Caplan
‘Reggae Man’ has been produced and mixed by Bobby Roy at Roy’s studio in Sweeden. In addition, the album was mastered by Mike Caplan in Washinton, DC. Together the team have crafted an album that is unique and compelling.
