Who The Is...Spiritual???

Monday, June 1, 2009

Born Horace Chin, in the Allman Town area of Kingston Jamaica, Spiritual developed a love for music at an early age. He started singing in local talent contests, school concerts and his church choir before moving to the U.S. in 1980 where he studied Poetry and Journalism at Oakton College in Chicago, Illinois.

For years his sojourn as a singer and a songwriter has been bypassed by the Jamaican spotlight but his name echoes throughout Europe, with an arsenal of hits such as Third Covenant, Jah A Di Roots, The Truth, Remain Silent, Red Eye, My World and Marathon featuring Italian superstar Alborosie to name a few.In 2005 Spiritual's song “Stop the War” on Chi Town Posse’s debt album landed a number one hit (released by Tuff Gong Records) and for the next two years he dominated European Reggae Charts with hit singles such as “Running Away From Sin,” 2008’s "Marathon", (released by RJR Records) was featured on Alborosie’s “Forward Label.”

In his misty soundscape of vallyed echoes and mesmerizing chants, Spiritual has blended the traditional Reggae elements of forceful drum and bass lines, and accents of Jazz, blues, and gospel.His musical message remains committed to social commentary of the 21st century.His personal Note: “I am a servant of Jah for the children of the world one Aim the same destiny”, Spiritual believes his faith brought him here to this world to spread the message of Jah in his music. Spiritual represents the true meaning of “roots.”Motivated by his Spiritual faith and freedom of expression, he brings the authentic culture and warmth of Jamaican music to the whole world with love and honor.

His main musical influences include: Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, Joseph Hill and Winston Rodney also known as Burning Spear.Spiritual has now completed his debut album and is getting ready to showcase his talent to the world beginning with a tour of Europe in summer of 2009.
