With wisdom in her lyrics and feeling in her Jah blessed voice, Khalilah Rose has spent the last 10 months entrenching herself in the upper echelons of the reggae And on her debut album—Zion’s Lullaby,her words have never sounded so powerful and truthful,her voice never so demanding…seconds on every song will have you thinking about a revolution against evil……
“People are always trying to redefine themselves, re-invent themselves,” says Khalilah Rose . “But I’m not selling you a lie ; I’m not selling you hype; I’m giving you my heart felt feelings and I’m trying to deliver Jah’s messages to you. And there’s value in that.” …we need a change for GOOD!
Her album Zion’s Lullaby with it’s eclectic appearances from guests Turbulence and Lutan Fyah as collaborative singles was recorded and producers and sounds transcends sub-genres and geography the cd Leave the PAGANS in fear, this is simply a filler-free REGGAE album from one of the finest female singer….
“Sure, things are different out there; music sounds differently, it gets made differently and it gets listened to and talked about differently. But it’s still music. And you still have to come with the truth as Jah wants it to be told”
Don’t think of the album title as some petulant shrug of the shoulders. Zion’s Lullaby is a mission statement from an artist equally inspired by the music of her contemporaries and frustrated by the static to noise ratio she hears in the music business. “People get down on things, people whine on them blogs about reggae needs this and reggae needs that …but the music of this year, with my sister Etana, with I-Wayne, with Romain Virgo…I AM PROUD TO SAY REGGAE IS FAR FROM OVER!! it makes me proud to put out an album this year. This has been a great year for reggae and it is only getting better and better!!I wanted to have my say and i’m am saying!”
this bio is not over until Khalilah Rose say her views about radio djs . Unapologetically dedicated to her gift, Zion’s Lullaby is an offering to not just Reggae aficionados, but truly anyone that calls themselves a music lover. It’s full of the frustration and anger of daily life, the joy and excess of a Sabbath night and the clear-eyed contemplation of a Sunday morning. It’s about what life gives and what it takes away. It’s simply a portrait of an artist doing her thing at the highest level. And if you don’t’ like it, you need Jah in your life…if you don’t play it eventually you will.
Zion’s Lullaby went on to be the top album seller on cdbaby.com and Amazonmp3.com over sixty thousand downloads from July 2012 to December 2012 and with only five thousand in hard copies it was sold out in stores in a jiffy of time.
