Tarrus Riley is among the leading ambassadors of modern day Reggae Music in Jamaica. The singer’s commanding vocals, intuitive lyrics and vibrant personality have combined to create a formidable artiste with authentic credentials in Reggae music. His rising catalogue has been described as ‘healing’ music, and has brought adoration and acclaim from leading music luminaries from across the globe. Being the son of veteran reggae singer Jimmy Riley his venture into music was predictable. However, Tarrus Riley set himself apart from the legacy of his father and has created his own brand, style and signature, which have fuelled his career to its current height. The moniker ‘SingySingy’ aptly describes his youthful obsession with performing music, and even though he started out as a deejay, his flexible vocal structure and natural ability to use themes from every day experiences to write songs, allowed him to seamlessly transition into becoming a singer. He has also been praised for his ability to deliver his tunes with the same potency whether supported by traditional live instruments or by the more uptempo Jamaican dancehall beats. He did his first recording as a teenager, and since then, he steadily recorded material for various producers until 2004 when his debut album Challenges was released with an independent label from Miami Florida. This album was his formal introduction to the world as a gifted artiste, and featured treasured tracks like ‘Larger Than Life’ and ‘Save The Children.’

His fifth studio gem, Love Situation, was released with huge anticipation in February 2014, and shortly after its release it earned him his first number one position on the Billboard Reggae Album chart. The 17-track album again features a powerhouse behind the production that has produced consistently admirable work over the decades. Leading this team is Dean Fraser who produced the album for Cannon Productions. Other contributors are the talented Shane Brown, Mitchum “Khan” Smith and Jordan McClure. It was mixed by Shane Brown and Romel Marshall and mastered by Grammy award winning engineer Michael Fuller. The lead single ‘Dem a Watch’ quickly gained an early spot on Jamaican charts, and has been rapidly gaining momentum and attention on other charts and on social media platforms.
