Life Begins for Yaz

The much anticipated debut solo album from reggae vocalist Yaz Alexander is now available from Fully Fledged Productions. Yaz is a mesmeric singer in every way, her vocal ability is truly outstanding and her finally-honed stagecraft reflects her experience at the top of her profession for many years. But it’s only in the last couple of years that Yaz has stepped out from behind the shadow of the likes of Pato Banton and Steel Pulse, where she worked as a support and backing singer, to center stage in her own right, and her new solo album Life Begins is designed to show off her talent to the full. Of the seventeen tracks, they include her singles This World and Empress, a reprise of Bob Marley’s Get Up Stand Up, three songs written by her producer Dennis Edwards and two from Steel Pulse’s producer Paul Horton.
The tracks are: This World, Empress, Still Burning, Why Me, Don't Trust Love, Step Right Ahead, Love Has Got A Hold, How Could I Leave, Sister, Get Up Stand Up Interlude, I, More Love, Black Pride, Mama, Beautiful, Out In The Rain, Still Burnin' Remix. I urge you to get a copy of Life Begins, though in the meantime, take a listen to a sample of the tracks on myspace. For more on Yaz, click here.
