ALBUM DESCRIPTION

"Cornerstone" may be Jason Mighty's full-length debut, but he is no newcomer to the gospel reggae ranks. After all, who hasn't heard Prodigal's "World Changer," "Ketch a Fire," "I'm Free," and "See Jesus Yah"? And who can't sing along with the chorus of "Turning Around," "Mr. Mention" and "Christmas Time Again" with DJ Nicholas? If you recognize any of these songs, then you are very familiar with the melodies of the effervescent Jason Mighty.

Singer/singjay/deejay extraordinaire Jason Mighty has been featured on numerous compilations throughout the years ("Recharge", "Scroll V2" and "YOW" 3 and 4) and artist projects (Prodigal Son and DJ Nicholas). He has been a mainstay on Mainstreet's productions and has had major success doing duets with the top artists in the Jamaican dancehall scene.

As is typical with most Jamaican gospel singers, on his freshman release Jason tries his hand at a wide array of musical styles from roots to dancehall and everything in between. He sings over bubbling roots rhythms on tunes like "Angel", "Why You Love Me So" and his break-away single "Can't Walk This Life Alone". He flows over a niyabinghi beat on the praise ballad "Be Magnified". On "Fill This Place" he even sings a passionate gospel ballad. He also touches the urban side of things with Raggamuffin hip-hop cuts such as "God Alone We Praise," "When Nobody Cares" and "Senorita" featuring a rap by Promise.

As is expected, there is also plenty of upbeat dancehall on this project-after all, Kingston is the birthplace of its hypnotic beats. Full of charisma, Mighty sings dancehall praise with songs like "Hallelujuh," "Ready" (featuring Prodigal Son) and the infectious "Want One Soul" with DJ Nicholas--I just can't seem to get that melody out of my head! In my humble opinion, it's songs like this and his hardcore dancehall cuts where Jason really hits his stride. Singers and deejays are so prevalent in Jamaica these days, but it is rare that an artist can do both with style and dexterity. Given this, it's the fiery songs like "Repent", "God's For You" and "Careful" (feat. Goddy Goddy) that reveal Jason's greatest strength--His uncanny ability to flip from deejay to singjay to singer with the greatest of ease and skill. Two of my favorites songs are the militant "DaVinci Code" and the playful "Never Seen," where it Mighty is reminiscent of Major Mackerel.

Reggae music possesses the undisputed ability to touch the spirit, the soul and the body regardless of face, creed, color or nationality. Singer, songwriter, minister, Jason Mighty (his real name) is revolutionizing gospel reggae with his unique mix of dancehall, praise and worship. Blending smooth, distinct vocals with musical hooks and slurs that can appease the most discerning listener; Jason imparts a glimpse of a genuine relationship with his Savior to the forefront of his songs.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Keeps getting play over and over
Here's the deal. This was produced by Main Street which was formerly (if not still?) one of the premier dancehall riddim producers in all of mainstream dancehall. So this thing sounds like the best of the best as far as production. Then you add Jason Mighty, who's voice is smooth and appealing, melodies written extremely well, full of creativity and just plain anointed, you got one of the best overall records in gospel reggae I've heard (and I'm a huge consumer of the music). There are so many styles and moods, you got praise fire stuff, straight dancehall, one drop reggae, a little soca and even some straight worship! The dancehall fan will not be disappointed, I don't see how anyone can be with this record. The more you listen to it the more essential it becomes to your CD collection. Solid investment, need I say more?
