Contractor, currently in Europe promoting his and Downsound Records’ music, has not only seen himself appearing on the major festivals but setting foot inside some of the most-prominent historical sites throughout the region.
The ever-evolving Contractor, also the label’s marketing director, has been in Europe and United Kingdom all summer long, bringing the music to various audiences at major European events such as the Global Reggae Bar concert, the One Love Reggae Festival and the popular Nottinghill Street Carnival.
At these events, the revered music consultant, real name Sean Edwards, played a dual role as recording artistes where he performed his songs Break My Promise, All I Need and Babylon Be Still, then as a MC where he promoted music from the Downsound-signed artistes Ninja Man, Ishawna, Nature, Toya, Specialist, Don Husky and Nazir.
He has also been featured on some of Europe’s biggest radio and television shows such as London’s Choice FM and France’s number one urban reggae station Generation FM.
Contractor, a resident of Ocho Rios, St Ann, was invited to visit the monuments in Paris such as the Eiffel Tower and the Obelisk. The Eiffel Tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most visited in the world, boasting a reported 7.1 million people ascending it in 2012.
The Obelisk, also in Paris, is 3,300 years old and was brought from the Luxor Temple in Egypt. Over in London, Contractor was invited to the Buckingham Palace and the Westminster Houses of Parliament.
And, while on these visits, he has somehow found ways of doing what he does best – promoting music. “I believe music can be promoted anywhere because everyone in this world loves music, regardless of the genre,” he said.
