Reggae singer Magano is purposefully making her way to the very pinnacle of musical success. This Shining Star - as her name means - radiates the passion she feels for reggae in every move she makes. And Magano, born Andrea Sawyers, has been making all the right moves.
Managed and produced by Le-G-Nae Records, this female singer is starting to attract a lot of attention owing to her musical accomplishments and the manner in which she is being positioned in today's music trends. Formerly a part of Coco Tea’s Roaring Lion outfit, Magano is appreciative of the opportunity she was given to hone her skills under the tutelage this reggae veteran. It was Coco Tea who wrote and produced her first single of note, I Am Leaving and, that song, was prophetic in its own way. It signified Magano leaving behind a life of obscurity as she readied herself for the inevitable spotlight.
It was on the cusp of the new millennium that Magano threw herself totally into music with her decision to work the arduous cabaret circuit. She was exposed to a side of the music she had only heard about and Magano, a graduate of Vere Technical High School, was like a sponge, absorbing everything and enjoying the exposure.
Armed with a wealth of experience, Magano’s re-entry to mainstream music has seen new doors being flung open enthusiastically as she confidently tests the waters, eager to make an indelible impact on reggae music. Pundits, having heard her work, are betting on Magano as one of the new faces to carry reggae into its second fifty years and beyond.
The singer has been impacting radio with her latest single Never Be Your Child, a must-listen track which focuses on the issue of abuse and which could very well become the anthem for the numerous women who can identify with this theme.
Never Be Your Child is the follow-up to Magano's recent single Mama's Pain which topped radio station Bess FM's Top 10 chart. Her single, Rasta Love, also rose to number one on a chart in Europe called Reggae France Top Ten.
Magano, who names Reggae Queen, Marcia Griffiths, as her role model, says her philosophy if to find the silver lining on every dark cloud.
Her debut album is due for release later this year.
