It’s nearly time!
Greetings and a blessed October to you!
Since my last blog post to you, I’ve been gearing up for my album launch event in just 20 days time! I can’t believe how quickly time just flies. I am truly excited because I have so much I want to share with you.
My album is now finished! The journey to complete it has been wondrous and maybe you’ve seen some of my behind the scenes clips on my Instagram or Facebook pages. It has been such a blessing to work with so many talented artists, producers and engineers. I’m so happy with what we’ve produced together and it will be available for you to purchase on my website and at my event later this month.
Now I’m focussed on producing my show for you which will be on the 21st October at Chalk Hills Academy in Luton. Tickets are available now on Eventbrite and remember you also have a coupon code for a discount (see below). It will be an evening that will touch the senses and the heart as I take you on my journey musically from Lovers Rock and my days in Brown Sugar to the Rock with my new songs and stories which appear on my debut solo album. I have a few surprises for you too, so don’t miss it!
I’ll also be performing in London on October 28th so look out for my next message with all the details.
Check out my promotional video to get a feel for what’s in store for you on the night and also my album. Please spread the word to your friends and family.

Save the Date!
Greetings once again! It’s been some time since I’ve blogged so please forgive my silence but the good news is, I’m back in the recording studio and on route to finally completing the album.
I’ve hit the ground running with my ‘A team’, so some big props to Desiree Banugo my music assistant and Lynda Ince my mentor and coach for keeping things focused and by helping me to realise the dream which is certainly coming to fruition.
I’m finally happy to announce the Album launch date which will be held on 21 October 2017 followed by regional showcases subject to confirmation.
Some of you know me as a former member of the 1970’s Lovers Rock group Brown Sugar and as part of this event I’ll be taking you on a trip down memory lane telling the story of Brown Sugar and giving a testimony of my life and musical career to date in a showcase called ‘From Lovers Rock 2 the Rock’ also culminating in an exclusive performance of tracks from my first solo album ‘Catch the Boat’.
Early bird tickets are now available and on exclusive offer to you so please click here to access and use the coupon code: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/album-launch-audience-with-shezekiel-tickets-37062160921 The Coupon Code is: Shezzy21
So now, I’m off to Holland this weekend for a well-earned break spending some quality time with my bestie Hilma, who has her own art school in Eindhoven. She’s also come up with some fabulous designs for my merchandise so look out for this as she’s an awesome visual artist. However, the highlight of my trip will be seeing the performance of one of my favourite Reggae artists Chronixx live in concert at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. Exciting times!
Please share the news with your friends & family and I look forward to seeing you there…

What’s Your Story?
I’m writing this month’s blog at an altitude of 38000 feet and there’s an external temperature of minus 53 Celsius. Yes peeps, I’m flying high and on my way to my favourite destination, Barbados!
Today I’d like to share with you a really special moment in my life and the life of my mother as I’ve spent the last 6 months self-publishing my mother’s first book and publication.
Mum has been penning her memoirs and life story for as long as I can remember and now at the ripe young age of 81 Myrtle Smith-Catlin has finally arrived at achieving her life long ambition and dream.
I also would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to never give up on your God given talents and ability to live out your passion, realise your calling and live your personal dream.
Life’s altitude will certainly rock and shake you with turbulence but fasten your seat belt my friend! In your testing times you might feel frozen out because it can get really cold outside but remember the season will change in your favour. Just be prepared in your heart and mind for the ride and you’ll fly high toward your God given destination!
In the current climate we are living in, life is short and oh so precious and if you believe it or not, you have a unique and individual calling on you life’s purpose.
I’m planning a surprise book launch for mummy on June 3rd for her book which is called ‘My Encounter with Christ’ it will also be available for download on Amazon from then.
In it my mother shares intimate parts of her extraordinary life’s journey since her arrival to the UK in 1956… as a young and inexperienced 20-year-old, fearing an unknown future and voyage from the Caribbean.
I challenge you to read her work, to be inspired and to be blessed because if she can do it then so can you!
Her strength, Faith and tenacity has encouraged me to walk towards my destiny, taught me that age is immaterial and inspired me to begin to tell my story through my songs.
Now let me ask you the question…
What’s your story? What passion keeps you awake at night getting you all excited and what’s it going to take to get you there?
Luv you nuff!
