DOMINICAN singer Oriel has just released his debut EP, Confidence. The five-track project is a teaser for his album, scheduled to be out early next year.
“The EP was designed basically to give listeners a taste of what is going to be on my album. I just wanted to whet their appetites a bit,” said Oriel.
The title song, All By Myself, Crazy Love, Down Where I Live and an acoustic version of Down Where I Live are the tracks on Confidence which is a mix of different sounds including reggae, jazz and Rhythm and Blues.
Oriel is new to the Jamaican music scene, though he has been making music in his homeland for several years.
He has also collaborated with Jamaican acts, producing songs by Wayne Wonder, Bugle, Konshens, Christopher Martin, RDX and Raine Seville.
In the last two years, Oriel has recorded a number of singles including Feeling Good and Scheme (Nah Stay Far).
Confidence is his biggest thrust to break in the Jamaican market.
“I believe that I have a role to play in the new reggae movement as a positive and uplifting young reggae singer and I am going to do my utmost best to do so,” he said.
