Reggae-infused MTVu featured artist, Blindman, releases his latest single, “Feels Good.” The song is the title track from the upcoming release, See With Your Heart. The inspiring lyrics and soulful vocal performance captures the essence of how good it feels to know we are loved by others. But as it turns out, there’s a bitter sweet story behind the genesis of the uplifting song.
Blindman wrote the song about the passing of his grandfather after being inspired by the famous anonymous poem “Remember Me” which usually surfaces at funerals or in obituaries. Blindman has pledged to donate all the profits he receives from the track to support orphans and widows whom have undergone hardships due to the loss of a loved one. Blindman collaborates with reggae royalty Erica Newell (Ziggy Marley &The Melody Makers, Dennis Brown, & The Black Crows) as well as gospel soul singer Yakini Alleyne a.k.a. Lady Truth
Blindman has shared the stage with an eclectic group of artists, including Kanye West, The Roots, Jimmy Cliff, Talib Kweli, Wyclef, Slightly Stoopid, Common, CeeLo, Julian Marley, Robert Randolph, Fishbone, Ludacris, and The Black Eyed Peas with the band RAINation and later Universal Rebel.
Blindman is the founding member of St. Joseph’s Outreach (www.sjoprayer.org), a registered 501(c)3 charity dedicated to the mission of building faith in local communities through the power of prayer. In addition, he supports organizations such as Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) in which he is a registered AMPLIFY artist, advocating for their mission of ending the many injustices of “The War on Drugs.”
The EP See With Your Heart is scheduled to release this fall. More information on Blindman, including U.S. concert dates leading up to his debut release, can be found at http://www.blindmanmusic.com.
