National recording artist Christine Storm has performed throughout the world, has been a prolific songwriter, and continues to tap into her wide range of life experiences for her music. Christine’s influences range from Alice Cooper to Blood, Sweat, and Tears, all the way across the spectrum to Kate Bush and Prince. Her sound has been described as an eclectic blend of Soul and Techno dance with melodies that are Pop driven. Many of her songs tell a story and confront real life feelings and attitudes, but with a humorous touch in many cases. “I would describe myself as sarcastic and eclectic! I love the escapism of music and how it can change the mood of a person, but at the same time, be so damn fun,” states Christine.

She has a devout appreciation for the genre and most importantly, the people and cultural traditions that encumber the world of Reggae music as a whole. She’s not your average depiction of a Reggae artist however uses her sincerity and love for God and of course Bob Marley, one of Reggae’s most prominently recognized Ambassadors who won the hearts of Reggae fans through his music and words, as a stepping stone to creating the song “Present” which features on The Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica (Deluxe Edition). As soon as she heard some of the names listed on the album, she jumped at the opportunity and hopes the message of the song itself touches the hearts of the listeners as much as it does her’s.

Donald Trump lists Jamaica as a 'Drug Haven', and Reggae Music Thrives as its Biggest Export

On August 8th, the Donald Trump administration listed Jamaica as a major drug producing nation. Even though this refers to the island's marijuana production, the island's reggae music continues to be its major export. Ever since the breakout of Bob Marley, the island has produced many great entertainers who continue to tour the world and make a very good income doing so.

The artists and musicians mostly eise from very humble and impoverished backgrounds as those who enter the drug trade but they choose a life of reggae music instead. Four notable reggae artists to mention from these inner city communities who enjoy a vast amount of success are Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Anthony B and Richie Stephens. All four artists are present on the hit reggae compilation cd Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica (Reloaded). The album debuted in August at #1 on the Amazon Best Seller reggae album chart and shot to #4 on the iTunes reggae album chart.

The album was released by the Contractor Music Group along with Amada Records& The DJ Grid USA. The album also includes Trinity Chris from the inner city streets of Toronto, Canada as well as new upcoming acts from the Jamaican streets such as Nature Ellis and Whitter the Legend.

Tropical House Cruises To Jamaica (Reloaded) Peaks at #4 on iTunes Reggae Charts

Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica, which was released by Jamaican producer Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards & The DJ Grid in January 2018, was highly successful.

It spent 19 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Reggae Chart, including four weeks in the number-one spot. The album, which was also submitted and accepted for Grammy consideration, did so well that Edwards has decided to do a ‘double take’. Last Thursday, he released Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica Reloaded, and having debuted at number one on the Amazon best-selling new albums chart, Edwards is hoping this compilation will be just as successful as the original.

Speaking with THE STAR about the project, Edwards revealed that though it bears a similar title, the new project is vastly different. He explained that with a touch of Afrobeat mixed in with roots-reggae music, the album will build on the brand established by its predecessor.
