Summer is here, and the islander in us wants to be taken to the beach for waves, sand, sunshine... and music! With his new album Positive Vibration, Gramps Morgan provides the perfect soundtrack for such a day at the ocean. His first solo project in 9 years brings us 15 feel-good tracks produced by Scottish-Canadian country musician Johnny Reid, recorded in Gramps' chosen home Nashville and in Toronto.

This unusual background is clearly audible throughout the album, both in instrumentation and riddim. While the basis is Reggae, of course (from the powerful first and title track Positive Vibration and the subsequent If You're Looking For Me to the calm final entry All About Love), influences of country and soul music found their way into many, if not most pieces - a fresh approach merging distant but related genres. Take Water In My Whiskey, for instance, or Float Ya Boat, a fun combination with Shaggy that almost invites for a Line Dance.

Other guests on the release are the fantastic India.Arie who joins Gramps in the soulful ballad Paradise, "the Rum Boss" Lybran on Rumnesia as well as the three-generation hymn Secret To Life. Featuring Gramps' son Jemere and daddy Denroy, the three Morgans talk about the importance of living in the moment: "The secret to life is taking it one day at a time, keeping it simple with a smile".
