It’s been quite the year for Jamaican native Alandon.
The reggae artist has increased his visibility, switched up his musical approach, and is working tirelessly to drop his upcoming album at the top of 2016.
According to Alandon, born Alan Lynfatt, “2015 has been one of my most successful years so far since I started my music career.”
With five singles including “Undress,” and “1980,” one feature appearance alongside his in-house producer Trackstarr “Fast Money” and three music videos under his belt to cap off the year, Alandon can see his growth not just in the amount of music he has been able to put out but in other areas as well.
“I see the growth in my performance and the delivery of my recording,” he said.
Moving to Connecticut in 2004, home to a vibrant Jamaican community, Alandon has always viewed music as his outlet to make an impact on the world and represent his country.
In an interview with Rolling Out earlier this year, Alandon reflected on leaving Kingston, Jamaica and utilizing music as a way to express himself positively away from the violence.
“As you know out there in Kingston, it’s basically survival of the fittest,” he explained. “So music was like an outlet for me. An escape from the violence.”
Putting out “grown people music” and songs for the ladies, Alandon never forgets to big up Trakstarr – who he says will be “all over” his upcoming album.
As the year grinds to a close, Alandon wants his fans to keep following on all of his social media accounts and stay tuned for more music on the way.
