JACK RADICS LAUNCHING NEW ALBUM WITH PERFORMANCE
IN WASHINGTON DC ON OCTOBER 23
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York- September 15, 2016 – Platinum selling Jamaican recording artist Jack Radics will launch his much anticipated new album, The Watershed with a special performance in Washington DC at the Touché Supper Club on Sunday October 23.
Doors will open at 6pm with showtime set for 7pm.
The show will be opened and hosted by popular DC based comedian “Lazee” Lamont King, known nationwide as a main cast member of the Russ Parr Morning Show, and for his noted appearances on Comedy Central’s The Showbiz Show, SpikeTV’s Manswers and BET’s Comic View/Bring That Week Back.
The Washington DC performance will be the first stop for Radics -backed by his band Love and Laughter- on his ‘Watershed Tour,’ a series of performances in various US cities throughout the fall, to support and promote the new album which is expected to be in stores by early November.
The Watershed has emerged as one of the most eagerly awaited new albums of the year ever since both industry insiders and fans of Radics received word that the artist had gone into creative seclusion in Atlanta earlier this year to work on a special project.
That process has now produced an album that is already generating major awards buzz among those who have heard it, and is, in Radics’ own words “The very best of me that there is… A Watershed moment in my life and career. A turning point of truly epic significance for me, as an artist, a father, a man. This is the album I was born to make.”
The album is comprised of fourteen tracks- written, composed, produced and arranged by Radics himself- that fully displays his comfort in blending the Pop, Rock, R and B and Reggae genres.
The album also features appearances by John Jubu Smith – the veteran lead guitarist who has been a mainstay of Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and who worked with the late Whitney Houston for many years- Ronnie “The Real” Barrett on bass guitar, and Ryan Lee Wilson, also on Bass guitar.
Radics and his team elected to do the first stop on The Watershed Tour in Washington DC because , as he jokingly puts it “Well, with election day arriving on November 8, DC is going to be the center of the universe leading up till then- so where else would we be? This is an album born of perseverance, blood, sweat and tears -which many people in this country can identify with. And it was produced as a collaborative effort- different people coming together- something I think some of these politicians could learn a bit about right now. Selecting a venue such as Touché, located in the historic H Street Corridor adjacent to Capitol Hill, is even more exciting. So we will be in the right place at the right time. Some things are meant to be.”
Radics has been a major force in the worlds of pop, soul and reggae music for over a quarter of a century. He has sold over three million records worldwide and is in the Guinness book of World records for recording the fastest selling reggae remake ever of a popular song- Twist and Shout- on which he collaborated with fellow Jamaican artists Chaka Demus and Pliers, in 1993.
Prior to arriving in DC he will take part in Harry Belafonte’s Many Rivers To Cross Festival for Social Justice in Atlanta from October 1 – 2, appearing alongside Carlos Santana, Jamie Foxx, John Legend and many others.
The Touché Supper Club is located at 1123 H Street NE, Washington, DC 20002.
