After ten successful album releases during his career starting in 1975 which includes his debut release “See Up Azeem”, 1988’s “Urge to Merge” , “Let Them Talk” in 1991 to the very daring “Rush” in 1998, Azeem has proven to be one of the foremost R&B/Rock and Pop-Reggae artists on the scene today.
With 16 tracks on this new CD Azeem admits that it was difficult to choose what would turn out to be the best radio single. After careful testing and through fan reaction, “In the Dark” quickly became the featured single. The song just seems to bring out the best in Azeem’s smooth and classy styling. The music and emotive lyrics inspire the listener’s soul and leave them wanting more.
Writing and performing for over thirty years, Azeem’s music and inspirational lyrics come from within and from what he observes around him. His influences are wide spread and range from the Motown smooth soul singers of the sixties like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding to the contemporary sound of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and John Fogerty & Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Opening for great artists like Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, Azeem’s bands have toured extensively over the years and now with his latest group, The Chosen Ones, he is in the process of putting together a national tour to support this new CD Release.
The new LP from Azeem & the Chosen Ones – “When Culture Present – Intelligence Has No Precedence” is the one that is totally contagious, and the one you always crave after the first listen. This is the genius of Jamaican bred musician and artist Azeem. You can follow the progress of his career, tour schedule, and new record at his official website.
