WORKING TOGETHER TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY STRONG
So were closing another year and we're elated this fine mess called 2020 is coming to an end ... yet very apprehensive about what's ahead though. After all 2020 did kinda blind side us all.
The music industry it's self is still scrambling to find it's footing within a chaotic and depleted environment. A lot of the artists felt the lash from the sudden imposed changes ... some faired not too bad tempting new ways of reaching out to their fans and keeping busy while others struggled hard.
I think the gist of this year is, in isolation you learned "WHAT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT", and that a sense of community and family could ease the pains .
The SHYRICK AMBASSADORS lean on the understanding that when times get tough, it's all about taking up a "no quit" approach and seeking "strength in numbers" .
"In 2021 It is my hope is that we can continue to work towards making life better for humanity, more love, caring and sharing..." MADI SIMMONS
So when a pandemic rose up looking to bind the world the ambassadors rose up and got busy with lyrics and rhythm. They as a family worked together to reinforce a positive mindset, motivating everyone to keep moving, keep working on the music and the message.
Madi Simmons, Jah Niceness, Don Minott and A1RAS have earned their seats at the family table with special recognition as ambassadors because of their loyal fiery spirits. Each of these gentlemen radiate positive representation for this genre on a daily basis. With the way they conduct themselves, their no quit attitudes, the product they deliver with it's core values, the strength they give to others, all speak loudly of an excellence not only in their ambassadorship, but also in character. They WALK THE TALK !
In fact three of the four ambassadors are sitting on a pretty sweet 2020 collaboration produced by RIDDIM N NICE PRODUCTIONS owned by JAH NICENESS, which out right proves their dedication to the music, the message and the community , check it out >>>
GET IT ON ITUNES :
Each of these 4 gentlemen have shown a rare loyalty not only towards this station's administration and promotional personalities but also for our most valued people the station SHYRICK NATION OUR LISTENERS who have ample opportunity to groove with the ambassadors in the VIPchat during live shows. And with the venues locked down , SHYRICK's live broadcasts are the entertainment alternative.
In fact I think the VIPchat is exactly where I first met our most enthusiastic chat room ambassador years ago>>> A1RAS, who is currently seeing 2020 success on recently dropped RAPID FYA riddim :
Looks like the Ambassadors know another cure to a pandemic aside from hanging tight to family and community is : KEEP BUSY and stay positive all the while !
"Bless ... my hope for the next year is for Corona virus to go away, and also to get a few of my fellow artist to come together and become united musical entrepreneurs for eg: promoting our own concerts and to get more involved in the development of our careers..." JAH NICENESS
One of our longest standing Ambassador Artists: DON MINOTT (who is known for capturing a TOP TEN COUNTDOWN win at the station way way back there and not letting it go for months) is still bringing the fire to THE NATION regardless of getting locked down. The message.... the music must forever flow!
Although he dropped a few good jams through out 2020 like : "LEAVE ME BEHIND" and "WE GOT TO CHANGE" , the one single that stands out most is a statement echoed by many artists through out the year .... IT'S TIME FOR A REVOLUTION !
Also keeping busy spreading the message is MADI SIMMONS who fired off some maaaaad singles this year , check out one of our previous features to sample a few >>
