It was 2013 when we first heard that Barrington Levy was working on an acoustic album of his hits. The forthcoming album, titled AcousticaLevy, represents the first studio album by the enigmatic singer since 1998’s Living Dangerously. Levy burst upon the scene in the late 1970s, a diminutive youth with a signature golden voice who, along with producer Henry “Junjo” Lawes and the Roots Radics band, ushered in the early dancehall era of reggae, changing the sound and vibe of the music forever. Throughout the early 1980s, Levy was one of the most popular and prolific artists in the game before moving to the UK and teaming up with producer Jah Screw. With Screw, Barrington Levy would record many of the timeless hits that made him one of the most celebrated vocalists to ever emerge from the Jamaican music scene. Songs like “Murdera,” “Under Me Sensi,” “Prison Oval Rock,” “Black Roses,” and “Here I Come” are modern classics that are still highly regarded by fans today, allowing Levy to pack houses throughout the US and Europe.
