Richie Spice – “Hang On In Deh”
“Hang On In Deh” Background:
Here’s what Richie Spice told The Pier about recording an Acoustic Album:
“Playing with acoustic instruments gets to the heart of the music. It’s reality, it is the natural vibrations. It allows people to hear the message more clearly, and for my career and the sound, it is something that I had not done before now. It was really fitting.”
Here’s Richie Spice’s response to our question about the song “Hang On In Deh”:
“The song is talking about things that happen in real life. What’s really happening in a person’s day-to-day life in the city. It’s not always easy, but soon the luck will change. The song does have a much bigger sound than the rest of the album, and actually has one of the rare electric guitars on the album.”
Richie Spice’s Body Bio/Background:
Considered one of the most prolific voices and profound lyricists in contemporary roots reggae, Richie Spice spiraled to international fame over a decade ago and consistently delivers critically acclaimed albums ever since, even reaching the very top spot on Billboard’s Reggae Albums Chart in 2008. His blockbuster hit “Youth Dem Cold” peaked at 59 on Billboard’s Top 100 Singles Chart, was featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and as the coveted closing track on the feature film, Attack The Block.
His catalog of other chart-toppers include “Earth A Run Red,” “Groovin’ My Girl,” “Marijuana,” “Brown Skin” and “The Plane Land,” all of which have amassed massive airplay internationally, solidifying Richie Spice as a revered voice in reggae music and catapulting him to the very forefront of the genre.
With his last album Book of Job, Richie Spice released it via VP Records. With his new acoustic album Soothing Sounds: Acoustic, Richie Spice will be going through Tad’s Records. “Tad’s Record has always been ecstatic about the idea of working with Richie Spice as he is definitely one of the finest reggae artists to date,” states Tad Dawkins, president of Tad’s Record.
“We always wanted the opportunity to work with him, so to make the venture both exceptional and above the ordinary, acoustic was the inevitable sound of choice.” According to Dawkins, this acoustic album gives Spice’s wide cross-section of fans an even more intensive feel of who Richie Spice is as an artist, and will undoubtedly draw even more ears to his remarkable music. Indeed, Soothing Sounds: Acoustic is a rare and refined offering for all reggae lovers, across the globe.
