about

This incredible new collection picks up where Gary Nesta Pine's highly acclaimed 2013 release, From Jahmaica to de World, left off. Recorded in Staten Island, New York, as well as in Norwich (Port Antonio) Jamaica, Revelations was produced by veteran reggae bassist Devon Bradshaw (former bassist for Burning Spear), Ian “Beezy” Coleman (guitarist for Ziggy Marley), and Tristan Richards (keyboard player for Live Wya). Gary was the primary songwriter with contributions from Bradshaw, Coleman and Basil Cunningham (former bassist for Rita Marley).

The 13-track set includes songs that deal with very timely topics such as “Pirates” and “Mr. Wallstreet,” which both examine the current financial crisis. Says Pine “Those tracks, they are about the vibe on Wall Street. Not everyone, but a lot of people in that field just care about money. It’s a warning song letting those who may not know better to watch their backs.” The acoustic guitar driven “Justice” tackles the issue of police brutality and how it affects people who are trying to remain peaceful and loving, “I’ve been sitting on that song and decided to release it on this album. Police killing my brothers and sisters and getting away with it, it’s just a hard thing to watch. I’m not on anybody’s side – I’m on God’s side – I’m on justice’s side.” On the drum heavy “That’s the Way” Pine sings about the lack of opportunity offered to a segment of the population. The big fish are eating the small fish.’ We should all have equal opportunities, like having the chance to go to college. We live in a system of preferential treatment and it isn’t working.” The rhythmic “Woman Like You” is a love song to strong and beautiful women. Says Pine, “It’s about a woman who is successful in business, love and education. She has style and grace, was raised well and is someone you want to be around.” Maybe the most personal track is “Thanks and Praise,” where, as Pine says, “It’s just Gary giving thanks and praise to the almighty Rastafari, for the mountains, the birds, the world, the people who influenced my life, the love of my family, his guidance. It’s a prayer from me to God.” Gary also ‘covers’ his big hit with Sinclar, “Love Generation,” using the same melody but different lyrics.

Gary’s music, which regularly attracts new followers from all over the world, has taken him from Jamaica to America to the forefront of the New York City roots reggae scene to the top of the European Dance charts… and now to the long-awaited release of Revelations, out on August 26, 2016.
