The singer and songwriter of roots music known as S.K. Unruly has released his latest single, “Marchout.” The track has been proudly published on the Mind Music Production independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Based on a rocksteady groove, pulsing bass, traditional roots guitar and the singing of S.K. Unruly himself, “Marchout” stands as evidence that this reggae singer has plenty of soul for the 21st century.
S.K. Unruly cites as main musical influences Bob Marley, Junior Gong Marley, Chronixx, Busy Signal, Konshens, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Ninja Man, Beenie Man, Drake, Chris Brown, Ne-yo, Trey Songz and Usher. His own style brings the old island sound into the modern day with contemporary studio production and an intricate, flowing vocal rhythm, making for roots music that will appeal to many fans of the sound around the world.
This makes sense, considering Unruly’s goals for his songs.
“The music I create is designed to inspire individuals from all walks of life,” he writes. “I am motivated to be a beacon of hope for these individuals. My music is the essence of the real-life experiences of my friends, my family, and myself. This music comes from the heart and stimulates the soul. My music will enable individuals to take the necessary steps to free themselves from life’s mediocrity and indiscretions.”
S.K. Unruly also advocates proactive living for everyone with songs like “Marchout.”
“Moreover, my music will energize individuals to abandon procrastination and to adopt actions that will empower them to be productive, self-reliant and purposeful in their actions to themselves and to their society.”
S.K. Unruly was born Shakeir Omarie Kidd in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in the Barbican community of St. Andrews by his grandmother. He has been singing since the age of five. The music S.K. creates has been called “soul-searching” and “emotionally uplifting.” Mind Music Production says of S.K.’s music that it “will help people through their heartbreaks, comfort them through the rainy days, help them to deal with grief and overcome the adversities they experience during life’s sojourn. When they listen to his music, they will not feel alone.”
S.K.’s hope is that “Marchout” will motivate people to give a helping hand to individuals that are less fortunate than themselves. He will be releasing his album in the summer of 2017.
“Marchout” by S.K. Unruly is available online worldwide beginning 15 August 2016.
