Lazo has your back in his latest single Love Is On Ur Side — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
With a life-affirming message set against timeless reggae, Lazo strikes a perfect balance between celebration and inspiration in Love Is On Ur Side, the latest cut from his recent 14-track LP I Have a Dream. “The album is unique in the sense that the choice of songs — including Love Is On Ur Side — is very unusual,” Lazo shares. “It brings all these different genres into one melting pot, which has never been attempted before.”
While the song itself seems seamless, the process was everything other than easy given the current global situation. I Have a Dream was recorded in the height of lockdowns — a new challenge for the artist who first stepped on the scene at age 15. “Having to social distance with the other musicians in the studios was tough, to say the least,” he recalls. “We all know music is all about vibing with each other, and feeding off of each other’s energy. In the end, the power and love of the music trumped all the distractions and difficulties, and made it all come together beautifully.”
A veteran performer, Lazo has been chosen as the Top Reggae Performer of the Year by the internationally recognized Canadian Reggae Music Awards, and has received multiple Juno Award nominations, as well as a win for Best Reggae Recording for Heart and Soul in 2000. He is a frequent performer at the Sunfest Festival in West Palm Beach — garnering the nickname Mr. Sunfest — and has stood on stage with The Wailers, Alpha Blondie and more.
