The Love What You Got singer, who is also working on his debut album, is quite excited at being added to the line-up of the inaugural three-day event which is being touted as one of the biggest music festivals to hit Jamaica. Paradise Lost, which is scheduled to be held March 10 - 12 at Grizzly's Plantation Cove, Ocho Rios, has attracted big names in EDM including Bassnectar and Tiesto, along with dub legend King Jammy, Zion I, AlunaGeorge, Felix Jaehn and Big Gigantic

An enthusiastic Guidance stated, "It's definitely an honour to be a part of this historic event. It really doesn't get any better than this and I am seizing this moment to connect with a whole new set of music lovers and, of course, to learn as much as I can from the legends so that one day I can fill their shoes."

The singer, whose latest song, Girlfriend Yard, has received much love on radio and in the clubs, pointed out that an accompanying music video has already been released and his team is looking to put out a follow-up track, also from the upcoming album, (People Have) Problems Everyday. As yet untitled, the 14-track album is being produced by Phree Music Records, the same outfit to which the artiste is signed.

Guidance, who has been involved in the music business for more than a decade and a half noted that he was quite happy at the progress of the project. When quizzed as to what took him so long to release his first album, the singer from Portmore, St Catherine, was quite philosophical in his answer, "Nothing happens before the right time."

Doing what seems to come naturally, he took time to commend his team, which is intent on getting the right persons at every step of the project. He revealed that the single Girlfriend Yard was mastered at London's famous Metropolis Studio by John Davis who has worked with mega acts including Led Zeppelin, U2 and Lana del Ray. Most of the voicing is being done at Mikey Bennet's Grafton Studio in Kingston.
