Reggae Star Tarrus Riley To Release Fifth Album 'Love Situation'

Kicking off "Reggae Month" in an epic way, February 4 th 2014 marks the release of Love Situation, the newest album from international reggae star Tarrus Riley . Ever the versatile artist - this album explores musical territory that is guaranteed to be loved by music listeners of all generations.

Production was spearheaded by Dean Fraser for Cannon assisted by talents such as Shane C. Brown of Juke Boxx Productions, Mitchum Khan Chin and Jordan McClure . Shane C. Brown along with Romel Marshall mixed the project and mastering was done by Grammy award winning engineer Michael Fuller .
