“REGGAE MUSIC’S BEST KEPT SECRET; INTERNATIONAL RECORDING ARTIST NOZA LIBERAL AKA: LYBERAL IS WIDELY REVERED AS THE MOST ANTICIPATED NEW ARTIST TO ENTER THE MAINSTREAM REGGAE DANCEHALL SCENE”
With popular mixtapes, hit singles, and an upcoming album, LYBERAL is establishing himself as one of the next reggae superstars to emerge from the heart of the West Indies. Lyberal’s reputation has been steadily building over the past halfdecade. His versatile singjay style recalls some of the giants of reggae history, but Lyberal’s diverse musical taste and humble yet restless artistic spirit have set him on a unique path that is helping propel the genre into uncharted waters with influences of blues, hip-hop, jazz, funk to workings with a full orchestra on his highly successful release of his latest record titled “I n I.” From the heavy touring, DIY-aesthetics of the American reggae movement to the Bass Culture influences of the Europe scene back to his culture roots at home in both the Cayman Islands and Jamaica – he’s ready to apply all his experiences along the way to his own journey. Lyberal’s time is now and the people are ready to receive a brand new reggae sound.
Lyberal’s official debut album, “Island Humn”” is expected to drop in March, 2022 in partnership with the Canadianbased label OUTCRY Recordings just in time for festival season having already been booked in Canada, US, Jamaica and Germany. Written largely in conjunction with producer and mastermind Christian Cormier and Jan Remer, a trailblazer in reggae music who is also overseeing the marketing direction for Lyberal, the upcoming album represents where Jamaican music is right now, a seamless blending of classic roots with contemporary production and superb musicianship. New songs like “Sunshine,” “The Fallen” and “Breathe” will become staples of Lyberal’s catalog, which includes earlier hits like “Legacy” and “Warn Dem.”
With OUTCRY, he now joins a network, an international family of bands and artists that includes: Konshens, Gyptian, Kranium, Luciano, Stylo G and many more. In the lead up to Lyberal’s first full length release, he has already been covered by major media outlets, and played at numerous sold-out venues and major festivals having performed alongside non-other than Damian “Junior Gong” Marley. Lyberal obviously thrives on the unconventional approach, while still keeping grounded in the history of reggae. That’s why he often bristles at being grouped into a movement being called “Reggae Revival” – because to Lyberal, he is not reviving the past; he is firmly rooted in the here and now, bestowed with a vision that is beyond today and music that will timelessly carry forward into the future.
