Jemere Morgan Marks Transition

Friday, 09 December 2016

On January 6, Jemere Morgan will highlight his ‘transition’ to manhood with the release of his 17-track debut album called Transition.

“This album will highlight the changes I have made from being a kid to a man. It is about travelling the world and experiencing different cultures and appreciating different types of music. It represents the current phase of my life and my experiences with relationships and so on,” he said.

Besides the title track, the songs are Shine With Me, Take Me Go Home, and Anything You Want. Scheduled to be released by Dada Son Entertainment, Transition also features several collaborations including Try Jah Love and Celebrate Life with Gramps Morgan, Shouldn’t Have with Joe Mersa, and Neighbourhood Girl remix featuring Agent Sasco.

Transition features production works from Morgan, along with his father Gramps, and contributions from the likes of Chimney Records, Markus Records, Rellee Hayden, Nebilus Records, Notis Records and DJ Frass.
“I am really just proud to put out my first album and I will want it to reach a global audience. It has a mixture of reggae and urban feel and is for the new generation of those genres,” he said.

Morgan — who is the son of reggae artiste Morgan Heritage’s Gramps Morgan and grandson of singer Denroy Morgan — admits that as the eyes and ears of the world await the album, he feels quite at ease.

“I don’t really feel pressure, but there’s a standard that I have to live by. I’ve been blessed to have family and a team around me to help live up and above those standards. I have been touring with my family since I was four and I have learnt a lot from them musically,” he said.

Morgan, 22, was born in Brooklyn, New York. He currently lives between Tennessee and Jamaica.

Last year, Morgan entered the Billboard Charts when Right Time, a collaboration with Jamaican-born recording artiste Vision, which debuted at number five on the website’s Hot Singles Sales Chart. He also performed with Morgan Heritage on the Catch a Fire A Tour — alongside Damian and Stephen Marley and Tarrus Riley — of the United States in August, and their Strictly Roots European tour in October of last year.
