Hailing from the Caribbean nation of Anguilla and raised in the streets of New York City, Letmegoo founder Jahmings Maccow synthesizes the rhythms and wisdom of the streets in "Man Redemption", his latest title and the upcoming full album rock reggae release "Soul Epiphany", whose debut single "I" premieres spring 2009.
Keeping with the free spirit of reggae, musician Jahmings Maccow is launching Letmegoo, a new record label focusing on developing and promoting the careers of independent reggae artists and bands. The first full album releases under the Letmegoo label will be Man Redemption, a full length roots reggae studio album debuting January 2009, and Soul Epiphany, a collection of rock reggae musings to be released during the later half of 2009. Music enthusiasts will have the opportunity to preview Soul Epiphany in spring of 2009 when "I", its first single, is released.
Native to the Caribbean nation of Anguilla and spent his teenage years in New York City, has already experienced success as an independent reggae artist. In addition to "Rebels", a single by Maccow that propelled itself to the top of Anguillian radio charts, Maccow has opened for numerous reggae greats, including Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, The Meditations, Israel Vibration, Dennis Brown and Culture.
This background, steeped in reggae's history, combined with Maccow's ingenuity, lends Maccow's music a particular character that readily connects today's audiences with the genre's origins in the social and political history of the Caribbean.
"I want to keep the memory of my people's struggle alive," says Maccow, who adds that change is not possible without an understanding of the past.
Two years in the making, Man Redemption, is more than your typical roots reggae album, as Maccow borrows from many genres that developed as a form of protest against racism and other social injustices, such as Delta blues, electric blues, and rock.
Plans are currently underway for Man Redemption's promotional tour, which will take place summer 2009 and reunite Maccow with Cliff Odonoghue, his former bandmate from Catch-a-Fire. The two plan to play at venues across the United States to promote Man Redemption.
