Where has the teaching of Marcus Garvey the music of Bob Marley or the fight fought by Peter Tosh left us? "Bring Back the Paradise"

"We as a people seems to have lost some important values and need to be reminded that these very small and seemingly trivia elements are important guidelines to our daily lifestyle and upbringing." ~Wormbass~

Reggae recording artiste Wormbass released a remix of a new single entitle "Bring Back the Paradise" featuring Dancehall doctor Beenie Man, a song he say is a reminder to society that love begins in the home. "We as a people seems to have lost some important values and need to be reminded that these very small and seemingly trivia elements are important guidelines to our daily lifestyle and upbringing" says Wormbass who has been a musician for 27 years. He is the founder of Blaze Band and have travelled across the world working with Beenie Man as band leader and Bass player.  "Things evolve but there are certain values we must keep. We have lost our self worth, the teaching of Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley or the fight Peter Tosh fought has little or no effect on the greater society, morals have vanished" he said.

Wormbass is a man of experience,he has produced Chaka Demus and Pliers,Luciano, A.O.N., Queen Ifrica, Blessed, Prophecy and Lenn Hammond to name a few.Worm also played bass on the soundtrack, "How Stella Got Her Groove Back." His years of travel on tours has been his greatest intellectual asset being able to meet, mix and mingle with people of various cultures and beliefs helped him to appreciate how he was brought up, "I remember growing up I could not walk by Ms Jane and don't tell her good morning, I better not, because she would give me a whopping and that's the beginning because as soon as she tell this to my mother it's another whopping" he said.  It takes a community to grow a child and this is Wormbass's argument, common courtesies such as "telling your kids in the home good morning is where love start from" he said.

  The single "Bring Back the Paradise" was inspired by these thoughts and is the beginning
of a new path Wormbass has taken.  The song is a production of indie labels Jahbirth New Limited and Explorer Recording and makes up a compilation EP that is scheduled for release ending July.  Wormbass remain a musician but has ventured into this newly founded career path, "I have been behind the scenes for years, not being able to or maybe it was not the appropriate time to lend my own voice, but everyone has something to say so I choose now to say what I have to say" he said adding " basically after all the glamour, glitter and all the tours I think Jah the father has humbled me to do something special so this is it."
