Stevie Face has come along way since scoring his first big hit song I'm In Love, which was released on the Arrows imprint in 2001. Eight years later the honeycombed voice singer seems poised to take over the top spot in the lover's rock category of popular Jamaican music, since reviving his career last year. After suffering serious injuries in a car accident and a change of management due to reasons beyond his control Stevie's singing career was on the back burner for a while. However as faith would have it in 2007 he decided to work and album project with top flight record producer/musician Computer Paul. He and Computer had worked on a few singles before and had built up a good working relationship over the years, so making the decision to resume his career under the guidance of the highly reputed producer was an easy choice.
"I have been through a lot in my career so far having started out in the music biz while still in high school." "My first hit was a song called Teach The Children in the late 90s and then I found the big number one tune I'm In Love in 01." "Things were looking bright at that point but the accident along the death of my former manager slowed me down badly." "Now things are looking even better for me, two number one singles in a year is very good and I know my album have a lot more hits on it and the people are gonna love it", stated Stevie Face.
The first single from the album and the title track is Tell It Like Is, which was originally recorded by Aron Neville in the 1960s.This is the hit that has put Stevie Face back in the spotlight since late last year. This song went to number one on several reggae charts both locally and abroad. This was exactly what was needed for the talented young crooner's career to get back on track. Stevie Face quickly followed up with another Computer Paul produced chart topper titled I Wanna Wake Up With You, paving the way for the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album. He also scored top ten hits with songs such as the Bobby Digital produced Coming Home For Love and Proverbs Six which was produced by Kemar 'Flava' McGregor.
Even more success is anticipated in Stevie's career with the release of his Boot Camp produced album, which features sixteen beautiful songs that were produced by cadre of high profile producers such as Computer Paul, Bobby Digital and Kemar 'Flava' McGregor. The songs on Tell It Like It Is visit a variety of topics including love, romance and religion. Several of these songs feature guess spots from artists such as Noddy Virtue, Teflon and MBC (Make Boys Cry).
Stevie's ability to sing sweet soothing love songs has earned him many fans both locally and internationally, especially in England where he has a rapidly growing fan base. He recently returned from a trip to England, where there was a launch party for his album in London on September 17th at the Hypnotic Wine Bar. "Right now my biggest fan base outside of Jamaica is in England they love me like crazy over there, they say I am the new lover's rock king." I guess it's because I have scored so many hits in England in the last year or so, but whatever it is the fans there love my music bad I appreciate their support a lot" stated Stevie Face.
The album was released was online two weeks ago and is available through leading internet music stores such as Itunes, Napster & Emusic. It will be released on CD in Europe on October 1st, a week later it will be released in several other territories such the US, Canada, Japan and the Caribbean. The physical distribution of the album will be handled by Black Arrow Distribution, VP Records, Street Music & Booth Camp Records.
