Reggae artiste releases new single; says it was love inspired

Devine
Julie Devine Songz Christmas

Popularly known for his song “Many Waters” Julie “Devine Songz” Christmas of the Caribbean Vybes Band is promising that his new single will be something unique and possibly even better.

Devine, in an interview with DNO said that his new single “Forever” was inspired by love.

“Most of my songs are about love. I get my inspiration from love when I write; love for life, love for music, just love,” the artiste said.

According to him, the single speaks about a young man who is in love with his partner and wants to express that to her.

“’Forever’ is basically a guy speaking to his lady and telling her how much he loves her and explaining that he wants to be with her forever. It is a lover’s rock like most of my other songs,” he revealed.

The song which was written by the singer himself was produced by Dane Pond and mastered by Emperial Studios, Cornell Phillip.

Devine pointed out that he will soon be releasing a video to go along with his song.

In the meantime, a show featuring the songs of legendary reggae artistes is another major event expected to come from the artiste.

The show dubbed “Legends of Reggae” is slated for July 27th, 2013 at St. Joseph.

“This show will feature my band and other local artistes and we will be singing songs of legendary reggae artists. It is my way of saying thank you to my community for the support they have shown me over the years. They have stood by me, they enjoy what I do so I just wanted to do something for them to tell them thank you,” he said.

He noted that he believes in the saying “charity begins at home” and pointed out that the show will be one to enjoy.

Devine is from the village of Layou.

    Is the producer the same Dean Pond that produced Third World’s “Patriot” album? If so that’s wonderful to see a Dominican leading his talent to his home artist.

    Julie Julie Julie as my student I remember you always happy and jovial and as I think back you were always humming and making melody. Am so very proud of you and this is another example that ITSS is making positive contributions to society. Don’t forget your first love God Almighty let Him direct your music. All the best my dear as you make your mark in the world of music.

    I cannot ignore this thread. Devine, you are second to no one. You are extremely talented. I had the privilege of attending some of your live performances, and i was mesmerized each time. You are awesome! You have a golden voice and I know it is only a matter of time for you to make it on the International scene. Wish i had the capital. Your future wife will be one lucky lady to have that voice serenade her to bed. You are exceptional!

    Julie Devine: Congratulations!

    Here in Canada, the land of ice and snow, we don’t know much about REGGAE music.

    I listened to your new release “Forever” on DNO. I heard strong words well sung! Only those who have experienced the feeling behind those words will be able to appreciate the message they convey.

    That kind of love should lead to a marriage between a man and woman who are of the same mind: a marriage that lasts as long as they both live!

    Some think this is a bit old fashioned and behind the times in this 21 century. But I love it! My wife and I celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary April 20, 2013.

    I hope and pray that you will avoid the trash. Write more songs that speak a message conveying the values that make civilization strong.

    Have a great career. I leave you with Matthew 6:33.

      “Here in Canada, the land of ice and snow, we don’t know much about REGGAE music.”

      Donald Hill reading from the quote above, I suspect you are either living on some planet by yourself, or you are just a liar!

      You would be better off if you said “you personally don’t know much about Reggae music.” Man these are not the days when someone return from a foreign country to Dominica, and sit and told stories about Brea Fox, and Brea Monkey, and everybody sat and listened to their folktale.

      You may reside in Canada, however Dominicans visits Canada for weekends, and many of us Dominicans are privileged to go in and out of Canada, at random, we drive from the United States, to Canada whenever we wish.

      Just about every Summer, I drive all the way from Los Angeles California, to Toronto, and other places in Canada, sometimes my vacation lasts more than a month in Toronto. And as far as I am concerned Reggae is as popular in Canada, as it is throughout the World If you ask any native born Canadian Black or white, anything about Reggae, if is one thing they know, is that the late Bob Marrley is the King of Reggae music, they will also mentioned Jimmy Clift.

      As many Jamaicans, and other West Indians residing in Canada, it is highly unlikely for Calypso, and Reggae music are not known and popular. For your information, there is a place Eeglington (hope I spell that correctly); North of East York in the City of Scarborough, not too far from the street Dawes, which runs East and West. If you are heading North on Eeglington on the right hand side there are hundreds of stores, in what appears to be a swap meet, one can go in there and buy anything they wish, ninety (90%) percent of the people who own these little shops are West Indians, and Middle Eastern people, and everybody sells their native music there.

      Where are you form man? God said in his word a lying tongue is an abomination to the Lord.

      For you to make such an outrageous claim: “Here in Canada, the land of ice and snow, we don’t know much about REGGAE music.” that tells me you are perhaps living a hole, or you are just a liar! And please do not give people the impression that Canada is covered in Ice and Snow all the time (year round) because as I am posting this I am speaking with a relative of mine residing on Ferris Road right now, walking distance from Scarborough, we walk to that place every Summer, today it is very hot in that area, a couple weeks ago it was flooding there. So any false impression you attempted to create about Canada, will backfire in your face.

      You need to stop!

        Where have you been? I thought that you were sick in the hospital again.

        Anyway I agree with you about reggae not being unknown to Canada, as it is said above.

        When I was living in Dominica; it was all about Calypso, the bands at dancing functions could not even play reggae very–I never cared for reggae music. But I fell in love with reggae music in Toronto–there would be no party without reggae and some of them are so beautiful.

        The name of the Street is Eglinton and Scarborough is a great big City, that is where my son now lives–what do you mean that you walked from Scarborough? Did you mean Scarborough Town Centre?

    Big tune dat!!! Vocal quality always on top, musical arrangement also has to be complemented and off course the post production and mastering of the work. Word of advice, do consider, if you have not done so already, registering with a copyright organization (ECCO, ASCAP, BMI, ETC). That’s the only way you will reap the benefit of your effort and hard work.

    sounds very good.but has any one tell him he looks alittle like “asher”?

  34. Do Not edit
    July 16, 2013

    very good. not knocking the artist, but is that what we teaching our kids now… you arent anything unless youre a star athlete or a rapper or dancehall artist

    • July 17, 2013

      Do Not Edit: Everybody has their message.

      Some speak by their words, some by their life’s work, some by the good they do, and some by example.

      I hope we can appreciate every worthy person who can have a positive input into our lives. There is a danger of making too much of celebrities and entertainers because (a) they are not the only contributing people in our society, and (b) too many of them have not been – and are not – good role models for anybody especially our children.

      Some entertainers pursue a career built only on giving people what they want to hear and see. They don’t care if it is uplifting or degrading as long as they have enough fans to give them a lucrative living.

      However, there are good people working in the music industry. When I hear an artist sing a song that conveys the values I believe in I wish him (or her) well! May he (or she) go over the top!

      Because so many people love his type of music a singer like Mr. Devine has the potential of being a great influence for good both by his life and his songs.

      Let’s support him!

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecostal Evangelist.

    • what ?
      July 17, 2013

      ummm nooo. You just want something to say man ? On the contrary, we encourage our kids to go to school and get a job based on math, English and science even if their passion may be the arts. We don’t explore our children’s artistic capabilities in the hope that they may be a doctor or a lawyer. THAT is what our children believe. That they are nothing if they are not a doctor or a lawyer. We don’t even have any internationally renowned artists from DA. Maybe Devine might be the first ! Maybe it may be your child ! We should teach our children to pursue what they are good at and what they are passionate about. Just like Devine says it is all about love !

      @ do not edit, instead of the young people getting into drugs, committing crimes and doing all sorts of wrong things, it shows that when you have talent that you can use it wisely, it doesn’t say that you must be a star, athlete, rapper etc..

    “Most of my songs are about love. I get my inspiration from love when I write; love for life, love for music, just love,” the artiste said: News Article

    Yes indeed! Love is not just for Life, but “Love is the Life” in us. Love is the stature of Spiritual “Light”–the Word which God used to call for Life–His Words were: “Let there Light”

    And so this “Light” was formed from Love, through the Man, Jesus Christ–that is the reason the apostle John tells us: “In Him their was Life and the Life was the Light of men”

    Therefore we cannot talk about “Love” if are not thinking of “God Almighty” the “Living God” in Jesus Christ; for God is Love and Love is the Life of the person with a soul that is awakened from its sleep of death.

    Therefore without the thoughts of God, when we are talking about “Love”, what we are really talking bout is the “passion” of the “mind” that feeds the “flesh”.

    This kind of feeding is “fallible” for the experience of “passion” can be here today and gone tomorrow. For that reason, it is easy for people to say: “I don’t love you anymore”–but was it Love that they were experiencing in the first place? The answer is no.

    And so, let us talk and sing about “Love” for our talks and songs about Love is a “testimony” that God is in us; His Love is making us to be the person He wants us to be–but we must acknowledge this Truth about Him–as He wants the glory; it is not ours.

    Blessings to you, Devine. As long you are in God, your work will prosper. But remember to give Him the glory–it belongs to Him alone, through you.

    Great vibes Devine. You are really talented and undoubtedly maintain the the most melodious reggae voice on the island.

    Just can’t understand what is holding you back from bursting on the international scene.

    Certainly endorse your intended video move. This is one of the major avenues of self promotion available for external exposure so do make the most of it and also invest in quality management as well.
