If you are familiar with Richie’s musical history (I know you are), you know that Richie always creates music that explains the times we are in and gives us confidence to know that better days are ahead.
Together We Stand is Richie’s 10th studio album. As with the past, the album is delivered on time, and contains classics that add to his impressive catalog. Songs “Beautiful Life,” “Together We Stand,” and “Valley of Jehoshaphat” were released earlier this year and are still enjoying impressive radio spins and mixtape inclusion. “Together We Stand” was the theme song for the COVID-19 fundraiser which assisted the Jamaican Government is raising funds to purchase the personal protective equipment frontline workers need. Richie’s title track was heard in Jamaica and around the world.
In addition to unity, Richie explores Cannabis culture which might help non-cannabis users understand why many feel that herbs is the healing of the nations. Additional titles that you and your listeners might enjoy are “I Use the Herbs” and “Dabbin.” “Eyes to See The World” and “Unity We Need” featuring Chronixx are favorites too.
On the production side, you’ll quickly identify the sonic sounds of esteemed producer Clive Hunt, and you’ll appreciate the approach of Giovanni ‘Ras Vanni’ Powell, Steven Stanley, Norman ‘Bulpus’ Bryan, Rickman Warren, John ‘Jon Fx’ Crawford, Elvis Grant and Roger King.
