I-Wayne re-writes The Book of Life

I_Wayne_Book_of_Life_Album_Cover.jpgKingston, Jamaica: - The mystic sound of I-Wayne will disarm fans once again with VP's sophomore release Book Of Life. Not many roots and culture artists can say that they have landed a hit on major urban/hip-hop radio as I-Wayne did in 2005 with his fiery single, Can't Satisfy Her, on heavy rotation at New York's Hot 97 radio station; or receive critically acclamation on their debut album as he did with Lava Ground. I-Wayne has undeniably raised the bar for roots reggae of this generation by captivating the world with his distinct sound and deep insight.

On his eagerly awaited release Book Of Life, I-Wayne polishes his enchanting smooth sound over airy instrumentals with simplistic yet profound lyrics that remind listeners of an essential truth-that life is a gift for which we can be grateful. The title track, which is the CD's first single, provides an overview of the set, expressing everything I Wayne has learned in his 28 years of life and his desire to share his experience-a glowing example of the personal rendered universal.

This uniquely positive worldview comes across most clearly in Life Is Easy, in which I Wayne flips the script on reggae's usual recounting of the sufferer's trials by reminding listeners that the way out of suffering is to give thanks for the blessings nature gives us. He also covers domestic violence in Jealousy and Abuse (featuring the great Lady G); male and female intimacy inNeed Her in I Arms; and worldwide divisions and anarchy in Politics and Religion. Following his philosophy throughout Book of Life, I-Wayne advises: "Just appreciate life as it is and praise it. We need to care for life more. We can't have too much love for material because then we disregard life. I'm not here to force anyone but to share some of life's knowledge - just being 'naturous'."
