Right time for Stevie Face
Reggae singer Stevie Face is ready to take his career to new heights with the release of his third album aptly titled My Time.
The 16-track album, produced by Paul 'Computer Paul' Henton, and released by VP Records on October 28, was recently launched locally at VP's office in Kingston and has been getting a lot of attention, both locally and abroad.
"The response to My Time has been overwhelming, I am getting a lot of positive feedback from fans all over the world. I'm really grateful for all the support the album is getting. It's a really great album. Computer Paul and all other people who helped with the production of the album did a wonderful job. I expect a lot of success with this project. I think it has the potential to push my career to a higher level," said Stevie Face.
The easy-going singer, who hails from the eastern parish of St Thomas, has released a number of chart-topping singles since he launched his career over a decade ago, among them, gems like I'm In Love, Tell It Like It Is, I Wanna Wake Up With You, Caan Go Round It, Thank You for Loving Me, In The Living Years, and Teach The Children, all of which were number-one hits both in Jamaica and the United Kingdom.
Prior to the release of My Time, Stevie Face released two albums, Coming at You (2001) and Tell It Like It Is (2010).
"Since I launched my career in the late 1990s, I've always tried my best to be consistent in delivering good songs for my fans. That is the driving force in my career, and any day I can't make good music, I will quit the business."
The first single off My Time, titled Da Lovin Yah Nice, is currently enjoying heavy rotation on a number of local radio stations, including Irie FM, Hitz 92 FM and Fame FM.
