Preparing to capture fans with new single "Keep On"

Cesar_SexyGirls_DancehallReggae_SeanPaul-beenieManJosephCulture.jpgKingston, Jamaica: - Cezar, multi-textured Jamaican artiste is set to release his newest single "Keep on". The song, an uplifting anthem of perseverance and hope, is a collaboration with renowned producer/engineer, David Kennedy, and will hit the airwaves in early August.

Cezar made his debut in 2004 and caught attention with his eclectic style. His cleverly balanced pop and R&B infused vocal style and guitar riffs with hardcore dancehall beats resulted in a fresh sound that generated a flurry of press and hot collaborations with popular dancehall producers such as Tony Kelly, Blaxx, Renaissance, and most recently, international producer David Kennedy.

Having built a stellar reputation for his work in the NY R&B/Hiphop/Rap scene, Kennedy's work with artists like Mary J. Blige, Mos Def, and A Tribe Called Quest, earned him numerous credits, awards, and - a testament to his acclaim - a Grammy nomination. He has returned to Jamaica to create a base of operations, and with the intention of translating his reputation into collaborations that showcase the power of local talent infused with his signature sound. Ultimately, he intends to serve this layered cocktail to the international market through his label, Intelek Entertainment.

Kennedy's drive to showcase the diversity of the Jamaican music market led him to Cezar. The resulting single shows off Cezar's writing skills, with a clever juxtaposition of life and a poker hand. The song, a reaffirmation of faith, rides on an equally clever and upbeat one drop reggae rhythm.

The track, which debuted on Cezar's myspace page has been enjoying a strong response with multiple comments being posted daily. The accompanying video has already been shot, and is currently being edited. The talented singer will be promoting the single at various events, including Mystic Urchin's live music show "Tuesday Nite Live" where he will appear on August 15th. The show happens at the Village Café every Tuesday night.
