This ain't the Bob Marley classic, but 'We Jammin' is set to be another BIG reagge hit! The latest track is a mellow reggae vibe and a video that matches with some of the best sights Jamaica has to offer. Vision gives you a mellow insight of the struggles Jamaicans face where ever they are in the world.
"We Jammin" delivers a nostalgic air of authentic reggae vibe aimed to evoke happy and memorable feelings to its listeners. In a statement to media,Vision stated "We Jammin" is a song that reflects the most memorable and happy times of my life in Jamaica. Jammin means to kick back and relax, instead of saying chillin or vibing, in Jamaica we just say Jam short for Jammin. The song tells you a lot about who I am and where I'm from. Living in America isn't a bed of roses for most Jamaicans.
Leaving our families behind and starting all over has its obstacles. So to past the time we jam reminisce on the good times back home in Jamaica. That's what the song is about, it's about we Jamaicans, even we immigrants. We all like Jammin in our own way."
The "We Jammin" video which was shot in Jamaica and Florida debuted on MTV.com US recently, and the song has been causing a major buzz across America and the Caribbean. Vision upped the ante by releasing a blazing remix featuring international reggae star Mojo Morgan of Reggae royalty Morgan Heritage.
They say when life gets tough, what keeps us going is our faith in things to come. And in order to see the unseen, one must have true vision. Meet Jamaican born, singer-songwriter, Simon Mitchell, most infamously referred to by his stage name "Vision". The name was inspired by Mitchell's influential upbringing during his childhood stint as a member of his mother's church choir. It was here that Vision decided that in all things life, he would be led by faith and not by sight. Because of this mantra, following his musical transition to dancehall, the international artist set out to create a promising new sound that he would later deem as "Roots Pop Reggae."
But before there was Vision, there was Simon Alexander Mitchell. Born November 5 to a Jamaican mother and British-Jamaican father, Mitchell resided in England as a child while his father played professional soccer before later changing careers and moving Simon and his mother to Jamaica. It was here that the influence of the island's strong musical culture would engulf Mitchell's life and inspire him to become an artist. At the age of 12, the young boy was introduced to the piano, which he took to very well and would learn songs at a gifted pace. He'd soon realize his melodic knack for composing music.
Fast-forward years later in which a football injury and a twist of fate would lead the former college athlete to a life of music.
Vision's initial role in the industry was that of a songwriter. His intended plan was to become a ghost-writer for various Jamaican dancehall artists. By June 2010 the then-songwriter had the chance to exercise his penmanship for artist "Columbian" for a track entitled The Detonator Riddim. Later, Vision would continue to write various pieces, including "From a Place", a song in which he had no real intention of keeping for himself. However, after receiving an overwhelming amount of feedback following his performance of the song, Vision then decided that some of his written pieces, although designed for others, were truly destined for him to sing and perform.
In January 2011, Vision was given the opportunity to open for singer Collie Buddz at the Play back Tour in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. That was his first introduction to the states that would soon deem him a crossover artist on the rise and international sensation. Since then, Vision has been feverishly writing and performing music, including, but not limited to, So Wet and We Jammin.
Vision is a strong talented force to be reckoned with; his writing ability and sound will soon deem him the inescapable honour of being a household name. His love for God and his compassion for his family, friends and country constantly drives him. He is fuelled by love, not by hate, and that kind of fuel never runs dry.
