Ricky Persaud, Jr. Releases New Album
Multi-Instrumentalist/Singer's Follow up to MYOB
The Enlightenment is out now
It isn't every day you hear a pop song about the Covid lock down that features steel drums, but you'll find it on THE ENLIGHTENMENT. The track "Freedom," about living through the pandemic while yearning to get back to 'normal,' pops with life while Ricky sings that he's "been feeling down, so underground,"
Critics and music tastemakers are paying attention to THE ENLIGHTENMENT, with Ricky winning a Global Music Award for the song "Cease Fire," as well as two nominations from the Indie Music Channel Awards: Best Alternative Artist for the song "Where's the Love" and another for Best Alternative Song for "Paradise."
The album title was chosen because it's Ricky's goal to enlighten himself - and listeners - through his music. "I had this willingness to carry on during these unprecedented times that added another dimension to my music that I've never explored before." What he has achieved with THE ENLIGHTENMENT is an amazing musical journey that shines with optimism, hope for change, and a belief that people can do better.
