It’s the month of March and although the hustle and bustle of the Trinidad Carnival season are over, the music industry never sleeps and so too is our search for the best new Caribbean music. This month Caribbean Entertainment hub is featuring Aleighcia Scott, a Wales-born singer of Jamaican descent.
In her hometown of Cardiff in Wales In England, Scott has received an award for the best local artist. Her voice and singing style are a powerful combination of her Welsh roots and Trelawny Jamaican heritage. In 2017 she was awarded the MMG award for best reggae act; in 2018 she released “Forever in Love”, her first EP with Pecking Records.
She currently works with BBC radio and on Christmas Eve 2022, she hosted “A Very Reggae Christmas,” with the BBC radio network in Wales.
Her latest release “Do You,” is an upbeat reggae song that sings about love. Scott’s beautiful voice questions the quality of the love her person of interest has for her. It merges the traditional drum and guitar sounds of reggae with beautiful violin runs, adding to an enjoyable listening experience. “Do You,” is definitely worth a listen.
Here is our specially curated playlist of songs for March 2023:
