Special featured Artist -Karamanti
Reggae singer – songwriter Sycorah has just released the first single and official video for “Skin” (2017) from her forthcoming EP “Rustique Energy” which is set to be released in 2018. “Skin” is produced by Delroy "Phatta" Pottinger from Phat Trax Records in Jamaica. He also produced her recent release “Undercover Lover” (2017). Her distinctive smooth soulful Lovers Rock sound can be described as being reminiscent of Lauren Hill and the strong delivery compared to Diana King.
She was born Simone Samantha Daley to former teacher Desmond Daley and Singer Barbara Brown. She is the second of four children and raised in Kingston 11, Jamaica. Her music career began in 2009 with an introduction to legendary Reggae producer Bobby Digital. She recalls, “Bobby Digital said I had a "fresh sound" and we started working together that very same night, in the studio.” She enjoyed working with Digital and went on to complete her first single "Satisfy You" (2010). It was brought to life on the airways by radio disc jockey Mighty Mike. The song played over the Tantric Rhythm on Irie FM.
Sycorah was inspired by her parents. Her late mother was a Dancehall artist known as “Sneaking Rachel.” She managed Sycorah’s music career until she died. Her last words to her daughter were "You're going to be a star." She also carries the words of her father who continues to be a forceful influence for her success. His motto of encouragement to her is “If you believe in something hard enough you will achieve.”

WATSON TOWN BASIC SCHOOL SECTION.
"The Watson Town Basic School Mission of Hope"
The Watson Town basic school is located in Dumpries, St James Jamaica a small rural and poor town about 45 mins outside of Montego Bay. There is one bad road that leads to the school passing one market and one pub along the way.The school sits at the end of the road, on property donated by the Hampden Estates in the middle of the sugar cane fields. The founders of the school are Mr and Mrs Kingsley Spence who are retired "returning residents".When the Spences returned to Jamaica they noticed that the children in the community were not in school,and idle during the day. Being educated themselves and very strong willed, they decided to start a school. The Spences continue there mission to provide an education to the children of Watson Town, and empower students to achieve. They feel that students can rise above any circumstance with an education as there tool. Their motto is "Young Minds are Power." If you are interested in donating to the school or sponsoring a student, contact Pamela Jones @ for more information.
