Biography

The "Spirit of Expectancy" Tour includes Fyah Wyah, Benjy Myaz, Tanya Mullings, Roalnd Burrell, Derrick Lara and the Universal Roots Band.

The artists are all well-known and appreciated in reggae musical circles - each covering a particular time and place in the music scene. They bring with them decades of good, quality and conscious reggae music.

FYAH WYAH --- The music of Fyah Wyah is universal to all races, colors and religions, spreading happiness and Oneness in lyrical content. The spirit lies deep within the message of Fyah Wyah and transcends through his unique vocal tones.

BENJY MYAZ --- Benjy Myaz has released three albums, namely Intimate Relationship, (his debut album), released in the U.S. in 1997 and Time Together, released in Jamaica and Japan in 1998 and the U.S. in 2000 (VP Records1). His own label, My Werks Music, released Long Story Short, the third vocal album, in November 2005. His first single, Love You Higher (Randy Crawford), was released in 1995. A fine line separates musicians who play music to live and those who live to play music. Benjy Myaz is no doubt one of the latter, as Benjy emphatically states, "I'm about chasing creativity, not the competition."

TANYA MULLINGS --- She has won various industry awards including 11 Canadian Reggae Music Awards and 6 Caribbean Crucible Awards. She was nominated three times for the prestigious Juno Awards and was presented with the Citizen's Award for the Arts by the City of Brampton in Ontario, Canada.

DERRICK LARA --- Not many people in the reggae music circle are aware that Derrick Lara wrote and sang “Hard Times” (‘Hey Youth Man’ on the Shank-I-Shek Rhythm); a song that went to number one and is still heard, on any given day, on the airwaves and in the dancehalls.... Derrick has embarked on a solo career, however, he still sings with Junior Moore and Carlton Smith of the Tamlins, who are famous for songs like "Baltimore, Ting-A-Ling and Go Away Dream."

ROLAND BURRELL --- Roland quickly rose to popular fame when he recorded the chartbuster “Johnny Dollar,” a song that topped the Jamaican charts in Europe, USA and Japan. Roland’s music brings into sharp focus an in-depth understanding of Reggae and Rastafari. This is the foundation on which he has relied to direct his path. It is this revolutionary spirit that has propelled him in the hearts of the conscious, while also impacting on the hype-driven generation who are constantly in search of a positive message.
