The Strong One Rises Again – Etana returns to Birmingham, Fri 17 Oct

September 26th, 2014 2:47 pm

With her sensational vocal talents and undeniable charm, Etana is one of the most distinctive Reggae artists currently performing. Known to her fans as The Strong One, she is an utterly accomplished performer whose meteoric rise to stardom over the last decade has been a true story of just what unbridled talent can achieve when matched by passion and hard work. Her fourth studio album, I Rise, will be released on Tue 28 Oct, and comes hot on the tail of a solid string of hits over the last few years.

Like many greats, Etana’s talent started to shine very early. Born in Kingston, Jamaica and growing up in the eastern Saint Andrew community of August Town, she started her musical career singing along to hits on the radio. Emigrating to America in 1992 she was soon snatched up as part of larger all-female groups, but quickly began to strike out on her own, returning to Kingston to find her own voice.

After touring internationally as a vocalist for Richie Spice, her first single, Wrong Address, became an instant hit with its fusion of acoustic folk, roots reggae rhythms neo-soul vibes. Her 2008 debut album The Strong One took her around the globe as a headline act at major reggae festivals worldwide, and was nominated for a MOBO Award for Best Reggae.

Now she heads to Birmingham’s New Bingley Hall for one amazing night as special headliner alongside superstar heartthrob Sanchez as a true champion of Reggae. You won’t want to miss a moment of her enthralling performance, so make sure you’ve got your tickets – they won’t last long!
