The EP will feature eight tracks, some of which are previously released, while most are unreleased.
“This EP will be my first, so I wanted to make it not only special to myself but also to my fans,” said the 2009 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall finalist.
The EP will remain consistent with R.C.’s socially conscious style, with a selection of songs that speak to motivation, struggles, triumph and inspiring change and self-reflection.
Since his emergence as a finalist in the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall, R.C. has been under the stewardship of legendary Jamaican producer Donovan Germain, whose label Penthouse Production is responsible for four of the tracks on ‘Rough Survivor’.
“It is an honor to not only have a legend as my manager and producer, but to also record in his domain where some of reggae and dancehall’s greatest hits were created is quite humbling,” said R.C.
R.C. will also embark on a tour of Europe from July 31st to August 30th, 2014 to promote the upcoming EP; which will see him in countries like Poland, Switzerland, Norway, Spain, Belgium and Germany performing at Keep It Real Jam, Reggae Jam, Reggae Geel among others.
‘Rough Survivor’ is expected to be released on the tenth of June by Zojack Worldwide the leading digital distributor.
