In Our America is the newest album from Reggae Star Aaron Nigel Smith. It is a protest album, but it also breathes a fiery optimism into the listener. The album debuted at #1 on Billboards Reggae chart in 2019.
This album is designed around a mural in Portland created by Nasty Women Get Shit Done, and is centered around the idea that protest is patriotic. Bringing the traditional tones of Reggae coupled with the omni-present colors of the American flag was a challenge. I tried to create a positive and peaceful tone with the imagery.
Working with a talented artist to build an album that vows to Ring The Alarm agains corrupt politicians was an incredibly exhilarating project and I look forward to working on more albums with Aaron in the future.
