Carlton Pride & Zion Reggae Music consists of Carlton Pride (guitar/lead vocals), John Moore (drums/background vocals), Ezekiel Benenate (bass), Papa Ska (keyboards) and on percussion Albert Alonso & Ras Drew Harper. The band's hometown is San Marcos, Texas, USA and in 1997 they played at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashaville, sharing stage with Carlton's father, the c&w music legend Charly Pride, for the family special. |
Their latest release, which is produced by reggae legend Clive Hunt, gathers 12 uplifting and melodic tunes, combining the flavors of reggae, world beat and dancehall. On track 2 - "Kiss An Angel" - it's a family affair as c&w music legend Charly Pride sings together with his son Carlton. The track is one of our favorite tunes found here. "Strange Vibes" and "Rub A Dub" are two more high lights of the album. Soca influences can be heard on "Everyman Spoil A Style".
Some of reggae biggest names were involved in the making of the album : Errol Brown (mixing), Barry O'Hare (engineer), and additional musicians like Dean Fraser, David Madden, Bongo Herman, Pam Hall and deejay Kulcha Knox.
