Richie Spice has been turning the heads of critics since 2004, when his song “Earth A Run Red” was resurrected into one of the biggest hits of the year. Spice’s career has continued to soar as a result of his enthralling live performances (Billboard Magazine ranked him among the top six performers at Reggae Sunsplash 2006) and a succession of hits that have resided in the upper tiers of the reggae charts. His debut album, Spice In Your Life, received raved reviews by both The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, rating it as one of the best releases of the year.
On February 20th, 2007 VP Records will continue building on Richie’s flourishing career with his anticipated album In The Streets To Africa, featuring an exclusive DVD with Richie Spice interviews, music videos and a live acoustic performance filmed in the streets of Kingston. Spice’s appealing brand of roots reggae is characterized by smoothly crooned, impassioned vocals that lovingly caress, as he does on his current romantic boom shot “Brown Skin”, or just as convincingly, by delivering the militancy of a righteous rebel warrior on “Open the Door”, or by the aura of ancestral mysticism that defines “Motherland Calling”. Guided by the principles of his Rastafarian way of life, Spice’s lyrics rail against injustices and the plight of the oppressed, implore assistance for the youth and extend maximum respect to the ladies.
