"Guaranteed & My Jamaica"

Jimmy Roland - "My Jamaica" / "Guaranteed"
From Jimi Bruce

Versions of jah tourists dancing in my head
Guide Rating -

Call the public relations people of Jamaica tourism quickly; we have a new jingle singer on the block! Jimmy Roland sings a potential new anthem of the island that stretches from Ocho Rios to Kingston and Negril. “My Jamaica” is a CD that embodies a heartfelt love for the island which was once a haven for pirates, so one legend goes. It is also the export place for Reggae, Soca, Calypso and dub music as you probably already know. Not that Roland is another Luther Vandross, but listening to him here reminds me of when Luther was just under the radar back in 1980, singing Juicyfruit and Doublemint gum jingles. Listening to “My Jamaica” one can imagine sitting on a white-sandy beach during a hot and sultry sunset or experiencing the waterfalls there-as this trade-wind soothing tune he croons and you want to hear it again and again. This should truly be the new theme for attracting the world to “JA” even though to date apparently, and as he told me, tourism and the Marley clan have endorsed the “One Love” lyric as its’ theme for the time being. It’s probably the opportunity for something fresh. If not there, then call the Chamber of Commerce in Jamaica, Queens in New York City!

"Jimmy Roland's "Suspicious Mind" reaches #10 / Top 100"

iDanceRadio.fm reports that "Suspicious Mind" by Dr. Kmer & Jimmy Roland has reached #10 on the Top 100 Spin Report for April, 2010. It has remained on the chart since February 10, 2010 and is currently bouncing between #1 and #16. This Electronic/Dance duo did reach #1 in 2009 on iDanceRadio with their hit "Got To Be Real". Will "Suspicious Mind" become their second #1 on this popular Dance radio station?

Roland is no stranger to the Dance charts as we recall his bass-pumping, club dance-floor shaker "My Jamaica", in 2007. That same year, his track "Guaranteed", went to #1 on Sirius Satellite Radio. These guys keep turning up the heat. - JyRo Entertainment / iDanceRadio.fm

Born on September 14th, in the small town of Taylor, Texas. According to his grandparents, Emma and Anthony White, who raised him through age thirteen years, this Virgo showed signs of being musically inclined from the start.

After high school, he enrolled in college, majoring in Animal Husbandry. Although he still has a great love for animals, he realized that music was the direction in which he should be heading. His musical roots are in Rhythm & Blues (i.e. Vandross, Gaye, Bryson, Osbourne and Warwick), he's had recent accomplishment in the Dance/Electronica genre as well. He is... Jimmy ROLAND!

Lately, Jimmy has been focusing on having his music placed in feature films, television commercials and the many other outlets where music is used in ads or for background purposes. This is not to say that Jimmy is not performing live anymore, as this would be far from the truth. So fans, don't zone out when those commercials breaks interrupt your favorite shows. You just may hear a familiar voice. As of June 22 '10, Jimmy Roland and Dr. Kmer is now affiliated with the Chicago music licensing company, Music Dealers, as their licensing agency.

On April 26, 2010, this artists' latest release entitled "Suspicious Mind" reached the 10 position on the popular Internet Dance radio station iDanceRadio.fm's Top 100 Spin Report. Jimmy teamed up once again with Italian producer-songwriter Dr. Kmer for this collaboration. The duo has also appeared on this spin report once before in January 2009. They had a 1 hit there with "Got To Be Real". Eight months later in September '09, the music video to "Real", made its broadcast premier on the MTV-LOGO Channel's NewNowNext PopLab Series, along with Madonna and others.

Jimmy is no stranger to live performances either. He has shared Main Stage billing at events with names such as Patti LaBelle, The Village People, KC & The Sunshine Band, Jennifer Holiday and Joan Jett & The Black Hearts.

Jimmy began his career by recording demos for various songwriters and producers in the Los Angeles area. His first R&B recording contract was offered by SGP Records in Hollywood, Ca. Fours years later, the signing of another contract took place in Toronto, Ontario-Canada and the Cd, Under The Moonlight, resulted. Included on that Cd is, Jimmy's most popular composition to date, "My Jamaica" (Radio Mix). Jamaica went on to be included in a publishing deal that Jimmy signed with a division of Warner-Chappel music.

For a show that is full of fun and...a show where your participation will indeed generate even greater energy from this entertainer, make your plans to attend a Jimmy ROLAND live performance soon!
