Maxi Priest    (0 Votes)
Only a handful of singers succeed in transcending their genre without losing the essence of who they are. Superstar Maxi Priest is one of those artists whose own unique vision has led him to tremendous international success, being the first reggae artist to have a No. 1 hit worldwide, including the U.S. Billboard charts.

His new album, Easy To Love is as fine a representation of lovers' rock as you could possibly wish for. The sophistication he brings to these tracks is the mark of true quality; his effortless blend of reggae, R&B and dancehall has universal appeal.

Lead single "Easy To Love," was a No. 1 smash hit on the reggae charts last summer -evidence that Maxi Priest has a gift for staying fresh. The song features the legendary Jamaican drum and bass duo Sly & Robbie, who've played on some of Maxi's biggest hits, including "Wild World," "Some Guys Have All The Luck," "Close To You," and "Housecall" (featuring Shabba Ranks), as well as the new album track "Every Little Thing."

"First and foremost, I'm from a church background," he explains. "My mother, a missionary, is where I would hear the beautiful sound of gospel, mixed in with reggae music that my older brothers played around the house. My sisters were into the Jackson Five, The Beatles, Al Green, etc. From an early age my family always encouraged me... I listened to all kinds of vocalists... Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, Dennis Brown... without realizing it, I was developing my craft. I was taught never to limit myself - that's why you'll always find different styles of music on my albums, and a range of producers to bring out different aspects of my creativity."
