Congratulations on the release of “We Will Rise.” We could feel the soul immersing through the speakers with this record. We would love to know, what inspired you to write “We Will Rise?"
Bless’ed love! I’m elated to hear that you can feel the #IslandSoul vibes. The inspiration for this tune came from flashback memories of my final performances before Covid-19 hit. Emotions and realities have hit hard this year and as much as it has affected my career and life immensely, I can’t just sit back and take ‘defeat’. So I wanted to encourage the fam and world that no matter what’s going on... we will rise.
You mentioned that live performances are a huge staple for you. Do you have a preference as to whether you perform with a band or on your own? Could you please take us into what the vibes are like for both experiences?
There is a reason it’s called “Live”. I don’t think I have a preference per se. They are truly two completely different experiences for myself and the listeners. The band vibes are electrifying, full of insanely talented beings, and cause for getting lost in the goodness that is live music. The solo experience is more about being found in goodness. It draws you into a one on one connection, as though there are only two persons in the room. It brings hope and from what I’ve been told, a lot of goosebumps.
What did the studio session look like when recording “We Will Rise”? We can only imagine how smooth the ambiance was
My guitarist from ‘The Royal Youths’ Rhett actually created the riddim (instrumental). He’s one of those freaks of nature that can do any and everything but is also somehow an extremely humble and phenomenal human being. This song’s music embodies Rhett, so when I walked into the studio to work on this song. It was a no brainer that it would just flow. I’m pretty sure he came up with the title ‘We Will Rise’ as well. He basically handed me the tune on a delicious platter so all I had to do was write lyrics based around the theme and of course, put my voice to it.
What themes and messages would you like your listeners to take away from “We Will Rise”?
Honestly, take heed to everything I said in the tune. The chorus speaks for itself but each verse is also written specifically for different types of persons experiencing this crazy life in different ways. Shine your light. Not a little light but a big one. Even when things seem dark. The only way to eradicate darkness is by having light present.
What has been keeping you inspired while creating new music this year Caleb? I’m not gonna lie. I haven’t been very inspired. 59 canceled shows, tens of thousands of dollars of potential income stripped away, and being forced into working a construction job (a Caribbean buoy in Canada mind you)... it’s been extremely difficult. I’ve done what I can to continue to take care of my two-year-old daughter and try to be the best partner and friend that I can during this time. As per usual, my music follows a very specific ‘theme’... hope. That’s always the scarlet chord... hope, no matter what.
