Jamaican born Jepther McClymont, a.k.a. Luciano deserves our attention not only for having the coolest birth name in the biz, but also for his latest full-length, Child Of A King. One of the foremost roots singers of his generation, McClymont has been producing music for a decade, mixing roots, dancehall, folk, and country into compelling musical compositions and stories. This is as true of his previous releases as this latest one.

Accompanied by full band, McClymont heads to the US and Canada this fall for s series of live dates well worth catching. For those of you West of Indiana, stay tuned for the November 19 – December 16 dates, to be announced shortly.

Child Of A King is out October 24, 2006 on VP Records.
