Album: Precious Memories
Artist: Della Grant
Genre: Roots
Label: Twinkle
Reviewer: General MP
Rating: 5/5

Della Grant is one roots reggae singer that needs no introduction to serious roots reggae music fans. She has been keepin’ it locked since her debut Album “Arrival” was released in 1988. Della began singing in her church choir in Savannah Georgia at age six. She has carried a strong Roots and Culture Message throughout her career and that is just as evident in her latest release, “Precious Memories”

Della is accompanied by her husband/producer, Ralston Grant, along with Norman Grant of the Twinkle Brothers lending their Rasta family vibes that is present in all of their works. There are also two songs featuring Colour Red, singing along side Della: “Dance Dance” and “Dance Hall Jam.” With the twinkle riddim section doing their part, and Della with her heartical lyrics and her undeniably talented vocals, they have created a solid example of Modern Roots Reggae.

As with all of Della’s music she is always defending truth and rights, and spreading Jah’s message. In song s like “Nah lef Mi Roots”, Della proclaims “the little that they have lord is just for a time” and hearing these words brings the listener comfort in these serious times.

The song I love Jah Jah also carries an uplifting message of love of the almighty creator, and confirms her spiritual faith. Track 5, is a tribute to the great selector, and itinual sound champion, Jah Shaka, a close friend of the Twinkle Camp. Her song, “Voice of the sufferer”, is really the one that stands out to me as a song of hope. Let us not forget the meek, and Della communicates this point eloquently.

What I also enjoy hearing when I listen to Della Grant’s music is her friends and family that help to build the vibes that is unique to her music. As you can see from the cover of “Precious Memories” (early photos), family is an integral part of Della’s music. I always enjoy hearing Dub Judah, and Black Steel, Ralston, Norman and all of their contributions to her songs.

Along with her husband, Ralston’s band, the Twinkle Brothers, Della’s musical vibes have a hola presence and an upfull movement in inity. This is apparent in all her studio works and especially her live performances. Della Grant’s “Precious Memories” is a treasure to be shared with your family and close friends. Jah Live!

Della Grant will be performing on the following dates alongside the Twinkle Brothers:

February 19, 2007 San Diego, CA
Feb. 21, 2007 Los Angeles, CA
Feb. 22, 1007 Santa Barbara, CA

Bio

Masterful Minds have come up with innovative concepts that are having an impact on generations past, present and future. Those of African descent have masterfully changed the tone of music for decades. From native tribal music to spirituals, to blues to R&B. All of these musical elements have produced some of the greatest talents the world has seen. It is rare that you find a talent that embodies the evolution of music and speaks to the multitudes of generations both past and present. Della Grant is one of those innovators; her masterful mix of reggae, soul and gospel music has marked her territory in the world of music. A gifted singer from a family of talented musicians, she has been singing since the age of six. Continuing a family legacy of gifted musicians, her husband Ralston Grant along with his brother Norman are the famed "Twinkle Brothers". Her acceptance in the reggae community has been not only welcomed but also embraced. Her poise as a singer, her grace as an artist and her talent as a human being can be heard and seen through her music. A seasoned veteran in the reggae community, she has released eleven albums to date. Her original song "Black Rose" garnered a spot on the Jamaican charts for weeks; her "Dawta of the Dust" has done the same in Europe. These hits have enjoyed critical acclaim in the United States, Canada, Africa, Jamaica and Europe. She has gained both national and international recognition for her music while touring with the "Twinkle Brothers". In fact, you could say Europe is having a love affair with her. Della has performed at such events as Reggae Sunsplash and White River Reggae Bash in Jamaica; headlined Reggae Sunsplash in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Vancouver (B.C.) Island Reggaefest, Reggae on the River, Reggae Splash Soweto and numerous Bob Marley Day celebrations. Della is well respected in the reggae community, having performed with many of the world's most renowned artist such as Bunny Wailer, Burning Spear, James Brown, Israel Vibrations, Luciano, Morgan Heritage, Aswad, Gregory Isaacs, Frankie Paul, Steel Pulse, Andrew Tosh, Maxi Priest, Buju Banton, Judy Mowatt, Rita Marley, Jose Wales, Pato Banton, Inner Circle, Sister Carol, Chante Moore and the list goes on. Describing Della in one word would be "Anakeke" which means in Swahili, "To see her is to know her, and to know her is to love her". Della is a talent to be acknowledged, appreciated and admired.
