Sello Lawrence´s CD: NEW NATION            

Berlin Cape Town Records (BCTR 001-1) 2006 - 2007

Yeah Man, this is the long awaited CD including tracks like, Thank You Jah, She´s My Sunshine, Pleasure, Life Is Good etc.

The CD is generally REGGAE:

It's a good mix of ROOTS, across DANCEHALL, to SKA via DUB and traditional AFROBEAT. “This album is a CELEBRATION OF LIFE”, (“Life Is Good”), singing songs of Praises to the Most High, (“Thank You Jah”), showing appreciation to the queens and princesses for their niceness (“Pleasure”), (“She’s My Sunshine”). NEW NATION is calling on all nations of the world to try and find the way together, live in peace with one another, to take care and love each other. This album NEW NATION also has a flair of KWAITO, HIGH LIFE and ZOUKOUS. !!! CHECK IT OUT YOOW !!!

Sello is a DIY kind o' guy. Playing in different bands has made him become a Jack of all trades. Fiddling on Bass, guitar and drums. He used to play keyboards and sing background vocal only, but when you listen to this Album you will hear WICKED LICKS on the GUITAR. Blowing you with FAT BASS, and grooving you with some TRICKY TIGHT DRUMS. He has become an ARTICULATE SINGER and an AWESOME PRODUCER. I mean composing all those tracks, singing them all, and playing all those instruments is no joke.

Check out this CD: SELLO LAWRENCE: NEW NATION on the new label BERLIN CAPE TOWN RECORDS (BCTR)
