Here it is: Tobago-born London resident Reggae singer & producer Franz Job’s highly anticipated second full length album!
The new album is a landmark again, as Franz has now lived in London for the same time span of which he lived in Tobago: 17 years. So the “Eclectic Country Boy” from Charlotteville became a real urbanite. Therefore his new album is titled “I Love London” and charters his all round sentiment about the British capital. The songs capture both the patience and strength it took to hold on strong from so far away from home. And about the love songs Franz says: “they are simply my prayer”.
Highlights include the calls for non-violence and equality in “Brother Brother (Drop Your Guns)” and “It’s Enough” – as well as the skanking and rocking “Wrapped Up in Jehova” with its catchy oooh’s.
In Franz Job’s songs the influences of Jamaican Roots Reggae are skillfully combined with the elaborate lyrical tradition of Calypso from Trinidad & Tobago. The result is an album filled with intriguing melodies and lyrics with a message. All tracks on this album are not only sung, but also written and produced by Franz Job himself.
