The Sleeper Act of SNWMF 2013: Hollie Cook and Prince Fatty

Yeah, I am pretty much convinced this is going to be the set that no one is talking about now, but everybody is going to be talking about after the fest.

When I first heard that Prince Fatty was going to be on the bill, I was thinking "Damn that name sounds familiar". Checked my music collention and came across a CD called "Supersize" featuring Little Roy, Winston Francis, and others. Wicked @#$%& release and highly recommended. this youth is another Mad Professor, Jah Shaka quality producer of sweet reggae and dub.

Hollie Cook is the daughter of Paul Cook, but she sounds nothing like the Sex Pistols. Her voice reminds me of some of the female artists from the Ariwa label like Sandra Cross, Aisha, Sister Audrey, and Kofi.

Go to the section on each of these two artists from the main Website and check out the "Listen to the music" links. I think you will conclude as I have that these are some up and coming artists that no Reggae lover should miss.

We've been playing a lot of Hollie Cook here in Guam. Both her self named CD "Hollie Cook" and the companion CD "Hollie Cook in Dub". They are on Prince Fatty's Mr Bongo label.

We also play "Prince Fatty Vs The Drunken Gambler" quite a bit.

If there is more I should be checking out, please let me know.

I am VERY excited about these two additions to the line-up.

As far as being the unexpected boom shot, you might well be right. I've been enjoying her vocal & dub LPs for quite a while, & I bet Ms Cook & her producer Bring It.

I dig Prince Fatty's refix style with 'Insane in the Brain' and 'Gin and Juice'. Haven't checked much else.

I think I may agree. This could be the sleeper set of the fest. Reminiscent of Zion Train last year...

Not really feeling that live performance. She seems to be a bit tone deaf in the first 2 songs. Band is awesome though....

agreed, ebh

I like it still... some of the most popular reggae artist got issues likewise, imho...

For some reason that French footage won't play for me,

But anyway, I'm pretty sure Hollie is not tone deaf :-)

Singers having pitch issues live often has to do with monitoring issues - the evidence points to something in that direction seeing as those who can view the footage report the problems resolve after the first few songs (eg: monitors get sorted out)...

Seeing as its a festival - chaos reigns, so for all anyone knows, she walked out onstage and maybe it was impossible to hear herself for the first couple numbers......

Found this whole concert on youtube - is it the same or yet another big festival in France?

It's a different show, she's wearing a different dress. After listening for a couple minutes, the sound seems better, better mix and vibe. Gonna be a big show.

Love that reggae!
