Joseph Blue Grant Cries for Jamaica

Germany based reggae singer Joseph Blue Grant aka 'Still Cool', has released a new single, 'The Blood Of the Jamaican People are Crying Out'. The song responds to the alarming increase in murders in his beloved homeland Jamaica.

Dubbed the 'Anti-poverty Crusader', Joseph implores his fellow Jamaicans and the artists, in particular, to unite against this significant problem facing the famous island. The single is available on all streaming platforms.

Since the early 1970s, Joseph Blue Grant has worked in the reggae music industry in Jamaica, sharing the stage with legends such as Burning Spear, Dennis Brown, Bob Marley, Judy Mowatt, Sophia George, Tiger, Brigadier Jerry and Freddy McGregor.

In the 1970s, Joseph Blue founded  the iconic reggae group 'Still Cool.' Louie Campbell, Steven Hylton, and Frank Diamond were among the group's members.

Big songs from the group were 'To Be Poor is a Crime,' (which peaked at number one on the Black Echoes Chart in the UK) and 'Poverty is So Wicked' Freddie McGregor redid 'To Be Poor is a Crime,' and it also peaked in number one.

Now living in Germany for over twenty years, he promotes and sells his music at events around Europe, such as Reggae Sundance, Reggae Geel, Reggae Jam, Summer Jam, and Rototom Sunsplash, via his sound system and Music & Culture Reggae Shop.
