Recently returned from a very special trip to his place of birth, Michael St. George is back in town with a new video from his latest release.
MSG's conscious verse and fresh musical sound have earned him international industry awards and peer recognition. Inspired by his working class upbringing in Kingston, Jamaica, MSG's work is dedicated to justice and social equity. As a second-generation dub poet, he's continued to remain true to the ideals of the form. His message is thought provoking, positive, spiritual and seeks to incite constructive conscious change. His uncompromising, syncopated, hard-driving baselines and melodic forms are infused with reggae, ska, rhythm & blues, and jazz influences. Fight Your Fears or Die, released in 2014, is his newest album.
No stranger to forging cooperative creations, MSG has shared stages and studio across the globe with such icons as Oku Onuora, The Last Poets, Culture, Burning Spear, Brinsley Ford, Lillian Allen, Luciano, Thomas Mapfumo, Mutabaruka, Mzwakhe Mbuli, Dennis Bovell and the International Dub Band, Toots and the Maytals, Benjy Myaz, and Boukman Eksperyans. He has also done collaborative work with prominent musicians and producers including Paul Kastic, Dalton Brownie, Orville "Wyz" Malcolm, Iauwata Selassie, Pam Hall, Ifield Paco Joseph, Amara Kante, Muthadi Thomas and Kassa Alexander.
