Emerging Reggae Artist Robert Bowen's Number One Single "Sunshine Girl" from Debut
Montreal, Quebec, Canada – June 6, 2016 – Robert Bowen is a reggae singer with a unique style. He has a professional sound on to of a conscious lyrical approach that always carries a positive message.
Robert Bowen was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica during a time when a certain spiritual vibration prevailed. At the age of 14, for family reasons, he migrated to Montreal, Canada where he attended high school. It was during these years he bought his first drum set, and it wasn’t long before everyone in the neighborhood knew a drummer had moved in. Robert played every day; before school, after school, weekends and every spare minute he could and that continued for the next twenty five years. As time went by experience was gained through exposure playing for several local reggae bands.
Being the devoted leader he is, Robert eventually landed a gig playing the drums while successfully leading the One Love Band on many shows from Montreal, Quebec City and surrounding areas to Toronto and the Caribbean. The band has backed and worked with a very long list of local, Jamaican and other international artists. During these times Robert discovered writing and composing music. This evolved into writing and composing for a variety of local artists.
Like everything else though, things and times change. After twenty five years Robert has made a decision to answer a compelling and continuous urge to sing. And so for the past few years with the drum sticks carefully put away, Robert has been pursuing a new musical career as a singer. This album, his debut titled I Lights is his first attempt in materializing and expressing through his newly discovered instrument.
The single “Sunshine Girl” which appears on the album I Lights has shown great potential being number one on the Number One Music Reggae charts for all Quebec and Canada for over a year. With such a great response, the artist is now ready to take on the world. We are sure there is something here for everyone to Enjoy!!!
Robert Bowen is a seasoned reggae artist who spent 25 years drumming, but has recently discovered his urge to use his voice. With that he wrote, recorded and released his debut, I Lights.
