First White Female Dancehall Reggae Artist Zerby to Release New CD
Zerby has worked with top producers in reggae like Sly Dunbar who produced Gwen Stefani. She has shared the stage with DJ greats Beenie Man, Sean Paul and Bounty Killer as well as singers Beres Hammond, Maxi Priest and Marcia Griffiths. Zerby's music has been included in the primetime TV show "Ugly Betty" as well as on the "Mo" movie soundtrack.
“I was in Jamaica when artists Beenie Man, Sean Paul and Wayne Wonder, including others, started their careers. It was a great learning experience to live in Kingston and embrace the Jamaican culture. I figure, if you want to do a certain genre of music, you want to live the culture. That is the only way I see to write and perform this music - by staying true to its roots.” Far from the touristy destinations Jamaica is known for, Zerby lived in Kingston, one of the caribbean’s largest cities boasting a population of 2.5 million people, where she honed her skills to the point where even Jamaica’s top entertainers and producers took notice. There is no doubt that Zerby's positive influence and talent is opening many doors for reggae music.
