Bad Daddy Records Releases
Fully Fullwood’s “For All Time”

Newport Beach, California – February 14, 2006 – Singer/songwriter/bassist Fully Fullwood introduces his unique sounds of reggae on his first solo CD “For All Time,” on Bad Daddy Records scheduled for release today. Highlighting the CD’s February 14 release is the track, Valentine, a tune about the quest for love.

Best known as the founder and leader of 70’s reggae band Soul Syndicate, Fully Fullwood was instrumental in shaping the sounds of Jamaican music. He has toured and/or recorded with some of the world’s most respected reggae artists, including Bob Marley, Joe Higgs, The Mighty Diamonds and many others. He was also a member of reggae superstar Peter Tosh’s band “Word, Sound and Power.” Most recently, Fullwood and his band, “The Fully Fullwood Band,” have been backing such artists as Justin Hinds, U-Roy, The Itals, and Michael Rose of Black Uhuru.

Hailing from Kingston, Fullwood is influenced by the musical vibes emanating from Jamaica, but “For All Time” also includes an international flavor. He has masterfully carved out unique rhythms that go far beyond reggae, displaying his love of South American and Asian music. In his first solo CD, Fullwood also draws inspiration from world beat, roots and American jazz.

“Fullwood’s first solo effort, ‘For All Time’ displays a depth of sound that showcases the various musical influences that have helped to shape his music over the past several decades,” said Jack McCullough, president of Bad Daddy Records.

The first two tracks on the CD, “Utopia,” and “My Cream Is Rising,” are most characteristic of his reggae roots, while “Letters,” an instrumental, has a Latin feel with a touch of jazz. “Sao Paulo,” a romantic tune with Latin rhythms, is about a man who dreams about the night he fell in love with a girl on the beach. “For All Time” features 17 songs that showcase Fullwood’s artistry as a composer, singer, bassist, producer and all-around musician. It comes as a 2-CD set, one with music and lyrics, and the other with all instrumental tracks.
