As a child, Spiritual used to pick mangos in the yard of Culture’s Joseph Hill, and those influences have stayed with him ever since.
Hailing from the same West Kingston ghetto communities as the legendary Bob Marley, Spiritual’s music is firmly anchored in both roots reggae and his Rastafarian religion, from which he gets his stage name.
“I’m a spiritual person,” he says. “I write songs about life and our place in it.”
Spiritual’s 2010 debut, My World, went largely unnoticed outside of his native Jamaica, but his new album, Awakening, is a different story altogether. Covering a huge range of topics, from black history in Ethiopia, to compassion, gratitude and the praise of Jah, the album is fast becoming a classic of the genre.
Described by one reviewer as ‘among the most thrilling roots reggae discoveries of recent times’, Spiritual records in an old school style, with live musicians, including horns, and live backing singers, all adding to the authenticity of his tracks. With profound lyrics, written to uplift the spirit and nourish the soul, Spiritual lives up to his name, creating a roots reggae sound that hasn’t been heard for a generation.
Moving on from the success of Awakening, Spiritual has promised a ‘tougher’ follow up album, dealing with a new range of issues from the Kingston ghettos.
One to watch, Spiritual is both a rising new star of reggae and one of the finest exponents of the original 1970s vibe.
