Ruth-Ann BROWN , Nakeeba Amaniyea, Nadine Queen
Ruth-Ann Brown was born in Jamaica, where she was surrounded by the influences of dancehall veterans such as King Yellowman, Josie Wales, and Jacob Miller. Reggae was like a drug. I couldn’t get enough,” Ruth recalls writing poems as a means of releasing her pent-up emotions. By the time she became a young adult, she began experimenting with writing songs to instrumentals made by friends. Her listeners have described her music as soul-touching, passionate, intense, deep, yet still as smooth, relaxing, tropical and warm. She credits Dennis Brown, The Cranberries and Sade as her greatest musical influences.

She was selected by Noel Alphonso of Noni Musik to be the cornerstone of a new female hip-hop/reggae/R&B group.
