Hailing from the parish of St. Catherine in Jamaica, Keera Rootz (born Keera Williams) is an up-and-coming songstress with a wonderful voice, who without any doubt is going to take her place among fine female singers such as Etana, Pam Hall, Nadine Sutherland and Marcia Griffiths.

The first time she performed in front of an audience was in December 2008 when she shared the stage with L.U.S.T. at an office party. It was L.U.S.T.'s manager who mentioned her performance to ace producer Phillip "Fatis" Burrell, which then led to her doing her very first recordings. A bit overwhelmed by the fast pace at which things were going however, Keera Rootz took some time to decide if she was really going to follow this path. But fast forward to 2010 and her mind was made up, "a music a do it!"

Now, at the beginning of 2012, it's time to treat the reggae massive to a digitally released Mini EP, featuring her first single "Sweet Rub a Dub" on the "Familiar Roots" riddim. It's a solid tune which fully showcases the catchy melodies and vocal style she will become known for. Also her second single entitled "Fall" is included here, and once again it's an enjoyable and entertaining effort to listen to. It's always nice to have a combination tune around and although "King & Queen" is worth hearing, it can't be ranked amongst the most outstanding tracks of this Mini EP. For that you'll have to check the excellent message tune "Stand Up" and the matching "Against All Odds".

With this "Sweet Rub A Dub" Mini EP, Keera Rootz makes fully clear that she's a name to watch for in the near future!
