Veteran reggae artist Spanner Banner has conceded that the release of his most recent album Im A Winner, in 2009, has somewhat revived his career into new dimensions. The baritone singer also said that hell be releasing the albums title track Im A Winner and a video shortly.
He may not command as much public attention like the current crop of young artist, but Spanner Banner is still in his element as one of reggae music front runners. He made his entry into the music biz back in the 1980s with Life Goes On, produced by Winston Riley, and hasnt looked back since.
Now, after a relatively quiet stint Spanner Banner, whose brothers Richie Spice, Pliers, Snatcha Lion and Jah Mikes are all involved in music, revealed that he has a number of upcoming projects and also addressed the issue of his absence in music.
Well, I wouldnt say that I was fully (absent). In January I did Rebel Salute and Im scheduled for several upcoming events, but its just airplay that Im finding problems with, he said.
The singer, whose career spans over two decades, has also recently signed a booking contract with Entertainment Konnections, which is a Negril-based company owned and operated by Ralston Barrett, a recognized personality in the local music industry.
Spanner Banner also said hes very optimistic about this decision, and has already vision himself being overloaded with show engagements in the near future.
I can see endless possibilities. Im already looking for more shows in the Caribbean and elsewhere. I have all the trust in this he added.
Spanner Banner also lamented that 2010 has been an okay year, but is very confident that the coming year will be of great benefit to his music career.
