Since its formation five years ago New Jersey based dancehall/reggae group West Bank has consistently recorded and released several catchy tunes such as Never Find Another, West Indies and My Life which have created a buzz for them in and outside of the United States. West Bank has also built up quit a reputation, having delivered memorable performances on several shows in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia
The group which is made up of Joel Isaacs aka Joe West and Jodaine Penrose aka Jody Jode who are both from Jamaica and Patrick Livingstone aka Mr. Millennium, who was born in Antigua and grew up St. Croix is now turning its focus on the Jamaican market. Lead group member Joe West says that the group is keen on making a name in Jamaica; therefore they will be releasing several singles locally this summer.
"Everybody knows that Jamaica is the home of dancehall and reggae music and even though we fuse a lot of different styles in our recordings, we are essentially a dancehall/reggae group so it makes good sense to get our music out there in the Jamaican market," said Joe West.
He also noted that the group will be coming to Jamaica this summer to perform on several events and to do some serious promotional work as well as some recordings. West Bank is currently working with Negril based production house Westside Konnection Records. The label is getting to drop their first single for West Bank in Jamaica. This single is titled Just A Little More Loving and was recorded on the Silk rhythm, which was created by Jermaine Tmar Millington who is member of the Westside Konnection Records production team. The single will be released in May.
In the mean time West Bank will continue to promote their latest single titled Swing Thaton the Amazon rhythm. The bouncy dancehall track is getting steady rotation on radio stations both locally and abroad, it is also receiving lots of love in the dancehalls. Its accompanying music video is also doing well; it is currently receiving good rotation on local television stations such as HYPE TV, NTV, RETV, CVM Plus and on OutAroad.com.
