THE FUTURE IN REGGAE MUSIC"

Biography

WESTBANK BIO} They’ve been compared to the Fugees, yet others would swear they’re straight up Reggae dancehall. No wait, Reggae pop? No, no, no, they’re jazz/R&B. So what do you get when you put all these elements together? A new band called WestBank with a flavor so tight they defy definition. “We want to create a whole new sound, always with that Reggae vibe,” says lead band member, Joe West. The group is “a musical bank of talent that represents the West Indies as well as the whole Western hemisphere.” WestBank has a sound like no other. Just when you think you know their sound, they’ll hit you with another cut and take you in a whole new direction, the next cut being just as tight as the last. And no matter your specific taste in Reggae, you’re sure to enjoy every one. Relevant, fun, and fresh, their lyrics possess a timeless appeal and reflect the cultural richness that is the Caribbean. Even their dancehall cuts are anything but typical. Audiences will bounce to their beats and vibe with their message long after they’ve left the clubs. WestBank is destined to connect with audiences for many generations to come. Who are the major assets that make up WestBank? First up is Joel Isaacs, aka Joe West. Joe West is no stranger to the music industry. Behind the scenes as a writer and producer, he enjoyed success managing two popular groups, ARP and Emerge, in his native Jamaica. These groups performed with powerhouse acts such as Beenie Man, Anthony B’, Bounty Killer and Destiny’s Child. Now front and center, Joe West loves DJ’ing, or chanting, as he affectionately calls it. His love of chanting is evident when he hits the stage, electrifying crowds with his high energy hold-nothing-back performances! Next up is Patrick Livingston, aka Mr. Millennium. This self-proclaimed shy guy with the booming velvet voice is the perfect laid back balance to Joe’s wildin’ out Elephant Man stage antics. Born in Antigua, Mr. Millennium grew up in St. Croix and now lives in New Jersey. He’s performed and perfected various forms of Reggae and Calypso music in different venues and was lighting up the dancehall scene with his explosive lyrics before finding a home with WestBank. Last but definitely not least is Jodaine Penrose, aka Jody Jode, whose silky sound is the perfect element that blends WestBank together like sweet butter. Jody Jode, a Jamaican native also currently living in New Jersey, was born to sing. She has been singing since she was seven years old. Her voice, pure sensual soul, will earn her a place along side her creative inspirations and vocal royalty Patti Labelle, Mariah Carey, and Mary J. Blige. This future diva’s star is already on the rise. WestBank’s first single, “You Make Me Wanna Move” has already placed them firmly on the lyrical stage. Their latest single, “My Life”, a sexy, jazzy Reggae groove demonstrating the group’s versatility is creating enough positive buzz to keep them there. The music industry strikes gold with WestBank, whose in-the-works soon-to-drop debut album, Initial Deposit is sure to be a long term asset to any music collection. Reggae posers beware, because WestBank’s stepping up the music game. Initial Deposit will be the best investment to the industry in years

Never Find Another (patois version)

Chorus
Diss me and it ovah
Don’t you come ovah,
You’ll never find another like me
You’ll never find another like me
Repeat 2x

Verse 1
You pack up and leave before me album drop
Now you ah talk bout you waan come back
Sleep wid a fool weh a feed pan crack
Now you a talk bout you waan come back

Dis me again; you ah turn all you back
Now you talk bout you waan come back
Weh yuh tek me fah, me nuh that kinda man.
A long time girl me a stretch me hand
Me ah talk bout bells and wedding plans
You ah look pan me like yuh no understand

Now you ah talk bout yuh still love me
But me lock off me heart and throw weh di key

Never find another like me
Chorus (2x)

Verse 2
Food neva cook and tings neva clean
When me a talk she a ball and scream
Worse than Freddy pan Nightmare Street,
When me a talk she a ball and scream
Tell her long time fi pack up and leave
When me a talk she a ball and scream
Weh you think, dis nearly done?
A long time me and you had plenty fun
But now things change, waan start fi roll.
You a look pan me fi get piece of some

Now you ah talk bout yuh still love me
But me lock off me heart and throw weh di key

Chorus (2x)

Verse 3
Di car, di house, di money she ah spend
Now she ah leave she ah tink bout dat
Child support, time in court
Now she ah leave she ah tink bout dat
Morning trips, relationships
Now she ah leave she ah tink bout dat
But, after all is said and done
Now you ah leave,

Nuh vex wid me or bite yuh tongue
Run down Dick and get a bun.

Now you ah talk bout yuh still love me
But me lock off me heart and throw weh di key

Never find another like me
Chorus (2x)

Music plays until fades….
