Talented Jamaican singer SumeRR presents the new single and video to Old School. This is the first excerpt from the forthcoming debut album by Tressan Michelle Barnett, born in 1993 in Mandeville (Manchester, Jamaica) and currently residing in Tenerife (Spain).
On her arrival in Spain, SumeRR reached out to veteran musician Ras Kuko and Ayatimas Reggae Management, who helm the musical and executive production of Old School, kicking off a promising adventure in Europe.
The single Old School represents a beginning, a journey of sorts through the artist’s origins. It’s a demonstration of the multiple registers and styles among which SumeRR moves with ease: roots, dancehall, soul, rap… all without ever losing sight of her Jamaican roots.
On a sweet and powerful Ras Kuko produced reggae riddim with a taste of the past, the singer shows her versatile voice, able to pass from the enveloping melody of the refrain to the energy and originality that hardens the verses of Old School.
In this song SumeRR then shows us her essence, characterized by a voice as catchy as her presence on stage and by the freshness and boldness characteristic of Jamaican music. She debuts on the European music scene after beginning in her native Jamaica, where she gained respect since her youth thanks to various singles and collaborations.
The videoclip that accompanies the single tells a story of love « old style » starring SumeRR herself, proving her acting skills. It is directed by T. Kimono in Tenerife, shot by David Gil and sponsorsed by El Rincón de Tintín.
Old Schooll is available on all digital platforms.
