Artistes Update Nov 19th – 26th 2009!!

New Image Promotions is the vehicle for Reggae and Dancehall artistes to establish themselves in the Industry.  Once again we bring you up to date news on the artistes we represent.  This week the spotlight is on Reggae and Dancehall artistes Xpress and Christina Star.

Xpress was born and raised in the parish of St. Catherine to mother Paloris Fearon and father Frederick Kerr (deceased).  The self named Reggae artiste nurtured his dream of making music and becoming a professional entertainer/artiste by visiting the studios regularly with his brother and entertainer in his own right, Jason Sweetness.  In 1992 Xpress recorded his track called “Save I King” and has not looked back since.  Recently he recorded a single with Turbulence entitle "She's in Love".  The song is currently in rotation and got its first media blitz a few weeks ago when it became the chosen song of the week on a Kenya base radio stations. Time constraints have prevented both Xpress who is also a Police Constable and Turbulence who has been traveling regularly from shooting the video for the single but the plan plans have already been made and a date will soon be set.  Keep up to date with this artiste by logging on to his website at www.myspace.com/xpressmusic11 



Christina Starz is no stranger to the industry as she was once known as Lady Marsha.  Her most current release is also her first independently produced single entitle “Stranded” but Christina hopes to work with other notable producers in the future.  Christina shot and released a video for “Stranded” and both video and single is currently in rotation.  Christina Starz missed an opportunity to perform on her first major event earlier this year at Reggae In the Valley.  She said she was ask to wait to perform in the Dancehall segment of the night’s proceeding but when that time came around she got overshadowed by the popular artistes who all came in about the same time and almost bomb rushed the stage.  Christina is not discouraged however and has made a number of performances on several smaller events since and is looking forward to yet another opportunity next weekend Saturday November 28th on the St. Ann Heritage stage.  Follow Christina Starz on http://www.myspace.com/christinastarzmusic and Facebook.
