Jamaican singer Mortimer will be releasing his full-length debut on Overstand Entertainment/Easy Star Records. The first single is already out.
Named “Whole Heap”, the R&B/soul track was paired with a beautiful visual directed by Pete Beng.
The track’s production infuses a reggae bassline and traditional Rastafarian Nyabinghi percussion into Mortimer’s forward-thinking R&B sound. Factoring in the singer’s powerful vocals, the result is simply irresistible.
“I write songs to express what’s in my heart and on my mind. I wanted to make this body of work – this single and the upcoming album – just as honest as my thoughts were in the moment. I’m aware that we all struggle from time to time and I want people to know that they’re not alone,” the artist said.
