Large Up Premiere: Sevana’s “Bit Too Shy”

Words by Jesse Serwersevana-jamaican-singer

LargeUp is pleased to bring you a premiere not only of a song, but of an artist. Sevana is a vocalist who’s got people in Jamaica talking thanks to her appearances on Kingston’s live music circuit, but up until now she hasn’t released any original music. (You may, however, have caught a glimpse of her natural beauty in our own Martei Korley’s “Couldn’t Be Wrong” video—she played his love interest).

Produced by Winta James and Protoje, “Bit Too Shy” offers a strong introduction to Sevana’s soulful reggae style, complete with an intro from Diggy himself. Of course, one song isn’t much to go on, but we’re hearing “Jamaican Jazmine Sullivan.” In any case, fans of Philly soul, neo-soul or just soulful music in general should find plenty to enjoy in “Bit Too Shy.” We just hope Sevana isn’t too shy to keep more dropping gems like this.

It’s been a big year for Protoje, and he’s only put out one tune. That track, “Who Knows,” a collaboration with reggae revival colleague Chronixx, has proven to be massive, building up great levels of anticipation for his upcoming third album, due out next year.

As a special treat for his US fans, Protoje returns to the States on Sunday, Oct. 26th, for his first Miami show with the Indiggnation band. LargeUp has two pairs of tickets to give away for the show, happening at The Stage, with support from Mixed Culture, Selecta Addy of Eccentrix Sound and DJ Corey Chase. But that’s not all: one “grand prize” winner will also win a Get Together portable audio system from House of Marley.

Words by Saxon Baird—

Taj Francis, who was featured in our Toppa Ten Jamaican Artists You Should Know spotlight last year, has been catching our eyes for a minute now with his psychedelic, reggae-meets-anime style. The Jamaican music world has taken note as well. His work graced the cover of Protoje’s album The 8-Year Affair last year and, in 2012, Francis was a winner in the inaugural International Reggae Poster Contest.
