Already deemed a classic by music industry insiders, critically acclaimed reggae band Morgan Heritage highly anticipated “Strictly Roots” Album will be released on all major digital platforms April 20th, 2015 and the physical copy on the 21st via www.MorganHeritageMusic.com

This musical endeavor is the first project produced under their own imprint label CTBC Music (Cool To Be Conscious). The album features an array of 13 memorable tracks fusing both reggae and dancehall such as the hit single “Perform and Done, Child Of JAH” featuring Chronixx, “Put it On Me”, “Wanna Be Loved” featuring Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, “So Amazing” featuring J Boog, Jemere Morgan & award winning drummer Gil Sharone and “We Are Warriors” featuring Bobby Lee from the Grammy Nominated Pop Reggae band SOJA .

“This album is our most progressive album to date. We feel as if we’ve covered the full spectrum of Jamaican music and how it has influenced today’s global music industry. The root of these influences you hear come from Jamaica. Hence the title Strictly Roots.” states Mojo Morgan

Regarding the song, Morgan Heritage states, "So Amazing is the type of song that puts you in a fun loving mood from the drum roll that starts the record. Because we were able to create a sound on this record with such universal appeal, J Boog, Jemere Morgan and Gil Sharone fit in perfectly."

Produced by renowned BBC One/BBC 1Xtra’s Seani B and Don Chandler, “Perform and Done” became an instant success as it showcased a different side of Morgan Heritage who is renowned for their conscious and social musical commentaries. The reggae track “Perform and Done” infused with dancehall influences showcases the band’s celebrated versatility, deft vocals, clever songwriting and catchy hook. Filmed on location at the weekly Mojito Mondays event in Kingston, Jamaica, director William Richards, managed to capture the essence of the song with a storyline reminiscent of the popular “Dancehall Queen” movie. “Perform and Done” which debuted last week on billboard.com, will be added on rotation to MTV Jams and VH-1 Island Soul.
