THE AMHARIC - DISCOGRAPHY: (Reggae Band)





THE AMHARIC - PROFILE:

Band: The Amharic
Location: UK
Genre: Roots Reggae
Influences: Rastafari

Menbers:
Danny Amharic - (Lead Vocals)
Ronnie Lion - (Bass & Backing Vocalist)
Victor 'Jazzbo' Downs - (keyboard & Backing Vocalist)

Biography:
UK roots reggae has become mythic, in a way: few people who can discuss it today without a glaze in their eyes, and yet it seems to have lost much of the mainstream significance it used to have one or two decades ago. From the Brixonites of The Amharic comes a fresh album now, their fifth, that underlines that it is not the quality of the music which is responsible for that decline. It is called "Stop And Search" and recalls the golden days of Misty in Roots, Matumbi and others.

The Amharic evolved in the early 1990s in Brixton, around the St. Catherine, JA born lead vocalist Danny Amharic, bass player and backing vocalist Ronnie Lion, and keyboard player and backing vocalist Victor 'Jazzbo' Downs. Some of the UK‘s most prolific reggae musicians, including Black Steel, Horseman, Bubblers, and Henry Holder have skipped in their skills to record Stop And Search. The album has been recorded both at Tuffwize Studios in London and at Big Yard in JA. The production credits go to Donald Henry.

Fans of the 70’s UK roots movement will rejoice upon hearing The Amharic, comprising of Danny Amharic on lead vocals, Ronnie Lion on bass and Jazz Victor Downes on backing vocal and piano, they can and will be compared to the likes of Misty In Roots, Steel Pulse and Black Roots. However The Amharic go far beyond simply creating the feeling of reminiscence. They have true fire burning in their music, instantly accessible to both roots fans and the crossover market, they also have a maturity, a sound of true togetherness and at its heart is the supremely talented lyricist and vocalist, Danny Amharic. Avoiding the many clich├ęs of reggae music that are seemly used far to often these days, Danny delivers some outstanding and insightful lyrics, dealing with familiar themes borne from slavery days and religious expressiveness, yet done in such a creative and original fashion.
