Jamaica Observer Press Release
New York-born singer Pierre “Qew Lunel” Davilmar Jr is paying homage to Jamaica with the release of his debut album Universal Language .
“Reggae music started in Jamaica. You always pay respects to the founders. Jamaica is the mecca for reggae and it is only right that I honour the culture that has inspired me so much,” shares Qew Lunel.
Much like Gentleman from Germany, Alborosie from Italy, and other acts who have embraced the genre and who have come to be well respected in the reggae fraternity, Qew Lunel, who released his album in March 2017, believes there is room in the market for talent like his.
“I am from Haitian ancestry and the people I surround myself with are from many different Caribbean islands. So I believe that’s why my sound and vibe reflect the real essence of the genre,” explains the singer.
Qew Lunel’s mandate is to create music with a message. His inspirations stem from musical icons such as Beres Hammond, Bob Marley, Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, Warrior King, Sanchez, Chronixx, Dre Island, and Gabby Ranks.
Lunel’s 15-track album showcases work from producers such as Njenga Giggz of Xtrim Records, Gustavo Ashanti of Master Kush Dub System, Decap of Decap Beats Sean Devine, Scarecrow Beats and Lion Riddims.
Meanwhile, Empress Sherley, Treesha, Harmony and Tajahniya are featured on catchy collaborations such as O nly You, Love Marijuana Love and Who Jah Bless No Man Can Curse.
While Qew Lunel has plans to visit Jamaica in the coming months to deepen his connections in the industry, he continues to make appearances across the Tri-State area. His next performance will be at the Afro-Caribbean Society’s annual Afrojam concert on November 22 in New York.
