10/4/17Irie Jam and Easy Star Records held a private listening party at Louie and Chan in NYC on Wednesday, October 4th to celebrate the October 6th release of Jesse Royal's debut album, Lily of Da Valley. Dubbmaster Chris of Irie Jam Radio was the host & selector for the evening; the intimate setting for the event gave media attendees an opportunity to interact with Jesse Royal and preview several songs from 14 track length album including, Waan Go Home, Rock It Tonight, Finally, Generation featuring Jo Mersa, and Justice.
During a live 93.5fm Irie Jam chat with Jesse Royal, Dubbmaster Chris mentioned that the only problem he had with the new CD is that every track was his favorite. When Dubbmaster Chris asked what Jesse's favorite track was, Jesse responded that his favorite track was Jah Will See us Through. He explained that it possibly was his favorite because he was involved in every aspect of creating it, before breaking into a brief a cappella of his favorite song.

Lily of Da Valley is now available on all digital platforms and bundles are also available on Easy Star Records.
