Lorna Da’Angel looking to make her mark | Entertainment
UK-based producer Lorna Da’Angel is determined to make her mark in the male-dominated Jamaican music industry.
“Men dominate the Jamaican music industry in every way, but I’m not put off by that. I believe that I can be as successful as any of my male colleagues. The time has come for more women to get into the production side of the business,” she said.
The producer said that she comes from a musical background, as her late brother Cliff Bramwell was Dennis Brown’s manager for many years.
“I learned a lot from him about the music business. I also have a lot of experience as a promoter and booking agent. Through my company Miles Ahead Entertainment, I’ve promoted several successful events in the UK over the years, and I’m also one of the top booking agents in the UK,” she said.
The hard-working entertainment entrepreneur made her production debut last year by releasing an album titled Atlantic Buzz, that featured various artistes.
The album features songs from seasoned campaigners Little Lenny and Little Kirk plus singles from up-and-coming artistes like Dertee, Kyng Prynse and Thesarus.
“This is my first project, and I am very proud of it. It’s doing well in the UK, and it’s also picking up in other territories. I’m grateful to everyone who helped to make the project possible,” said Lorna Da’Angel.
The first single off the album is the dancehall track Same Whine done by Little Lenny and Little Kirk. A supporting music video was shot and directed by Nordia Rose. The single and the video were released two weeks ago.
