I write this totally from the perspective of an internet marketing strategist, as someone who spends 80 percent of her waking hours online reading,tracking trends and who is very biased towards conscious reggae and dancehall artists like Shabba, Lady Saw, Gregory Isaacs,Peter Tosh and yes Bob Marley of course. This post was inspired by a long talk with a friend of mind who’s in the business as a sound engineer and producer who’s worked in pretty much every studio in the country. So, with biases and background declared, let me get to my Reggae music lessons for the industry.

Ironically it’s what the dude, Alex Morrissey who just launched Songwrita the social game based on reggae/dancehall music and who has amassed a community of over 200,000 fans for his Jamaicansmusic.com website understands very well. So I believe once the frustrated artistes, producers and management who have seen their money train fall off of a cliff these last two years especially, become students of a new game, they’ll be on their way. They should realise by now, by the numbers and the misplaced hype that there will be no going back to the way things were.
