The legendary Shinehead has blessed generations of fans with hits! And after the leak of his forthcoming song “The Makings of You” broke the internet last week, it’s clear that another musical gem is on its way.
From the moment popular international DJ Mix Master J dropped “The Makings of You” on his IG live, the song’s kinetic force quickly rippled through music places and spaces, garnering loads of shares and reposts.
The surprise snippet was so nice, the DJ had to wheel it thrice. Undoubtedly, the classic Curtis Mayfield cover seamlessly delivered by Shinehead, will serve as an ideal follow up to the stellar “Never Had A Dream Come True.”
The heartfelt tune is bound to give all chills once the falsetto drops in. Jah know! Although the song doesn’t yet have a release date, according to sources, it’s due on the Peckings UK imprint. While Shinehead’s infectious style transcends music genres, the talented artist has once again found a Reggae soul groove.
Shinehead’s current explosive single “Never Had a Dream Come True” continues to enjoy success, amassing attention from radio DJs, sound systems, digital playlists, media and music lovers.
“Never Had a Dream Come True” is available on all digital platforms. Shinhead and DJ Papalotl, of Kingston 12 Hi Fi, play on Reggae Global Radio several days a week. In addition to spinning vibrant Reggae, Dancehall, R&B and Hip Hop selections, the insanely talented Shinehead even blesses listeners with exciting performances.
Shinehead began his music career by performing for different New York City reggae dancehall sound systems in the 1980s, most notably Tony Screw’s Downbeat the Ruler, based in The Bronx.
His recording debut was in 1986 on the African Love Music independent record label with “Who the Cap Fits (Let Them Wear It)” from the album Rough & Rugged. In his early years, Jeff Buckley led his group on guitar and lent a hand with backing vocals. He appeared on Sly and Robbie’s 1987 album Rhythm Killers.
Shinehead was signed to a recording contract by A&R representative Raoul Roach with Elektra Records in 1988, and remained with the label until 1995.
