Song Of The Day: Promises By Joss Jaffe Ft. Mykel Rose

Based in California, Joss Jaffe is a musician that fuses elements of his long study of Indian classical music with reggae rhythms and a passion for conscious living.

The song itself almost did not make it into the world since the hard disk containing the master was nearly destroyed in a fire. Fortunately this catchy music survived and now it can be shared around the world. In the lyrics Joss examines the political deception that we the people have to constantly face from “corrupt and petty strongmen” but the song also contains a glimpse of hope that this time will soon come to an end:

“Leaders of the world, get them out. Old time pharaoh, your time has run out. King and tyrant your reign has come to an end. Your false promise can’t ever touch us again.”

With the help of Grammy award winning Jamaican reggae singer Mykal Rose, the song is as hard hitting as it is uplifting – the perfect balance between the political message and the banging reggae beat.

The beautiful cover art is created by Drew Brophy who is known for his work for the Sublime album covers.
