The Return of Reggae Legend Jimmy Cliff; New Album Mastered at The Lodge!

Grammy-winning reggae legend, Jimmy Cliff, has released his first studio album in 8 years.  Titled “Rebirth,” the album, which earned 4 stars in Rolling Stone, was produced by Punk Legend Tim Armstrong of Rancid and Operation Ivy fame, and was mastered at The Lodge.

Jimmy Cliff needs no introductions; a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and the man that single handed-ly brought reggae music to the masses, Cliff has made a legendary career for himself as a musician, singer, songwriter, producer, activist and actor. His first hit was at the ripe age of 14 with the song “Hurricane Hattie” which was produced by the Influential Leslie Kong. His success as an artist continued with albums like “The Harder They Come” and “Breakout” as well as his crucial acting role in Ivanhoe Martin's movie "The Harder They Come"; contributing iconic tracks such as "Many Rivers To Cross" and "You Can Get It If You Really Want".

On this album Cliff explores his rebirth as an artist and as a man, it is driven by socially conscious lyrics and was inspired by a tour of African countries. He was quoted saying “Africa is like an injection for me. Being there gave me that high feeling- the songs just poured out.”
