Master See is tuned into the natural mystic that Bob Marley sang about during the Golden Age of Reggae. “Reggae music’s popularity peaked during the 1970s and 1980s with artists who spoke out against political and economic injustice,” says Master See. “That’s what attracted me to people like Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Black Uhuru, Steel Pulse and many others.
“I call my style SoulBeat: A Dynamic Blend of Reggae and Soul. It’s important that original artists reflect their reality and not just be imitations of others. Growing up in the Deep South means that I stand on a powerful music tradition that created the blues, jazz, r&b, funk and soul. I take the Mighty U-Roy’s declaration to heart – “I originate! So you must appreciate! Others got to imitate, you know!”
Powerful vocals and a charismatic stage presence have led some to compare Master See favorably to Peter Tosh, his all-time favorite reggae artist. “There’s nothing more inspiring than an original artist whose works are a true expression from deep within. Like Tosh, my songs are not calculations, they are revelations.”
A poignant lyricist, powerful vocalist and innovative producer, Master See is inspiring music lovers around the globe with his new CD ‘4EVA MUSIC’. “This latest CD project was completed during a very challenging time in my life; what you might call adverse circumstances. Yet, it is some of my best work. I really strive to create a musical environment that brings out a certain feeling of openness and empathy in the listener. Then, the lyrics can be written into their hearts and minds. Such is the power of music.”
