Jesse Royal Emphasizes The Power Of The People At One Love Cali Reggae Fest THOUGHTS+PHOTOS: JESSE ROYAL @ ONE LOVE CALI REGGAE FEST 2/10/18
LONG BEACH, CA- Another particularly hyped performance at One Love Cali Reggae Fest was achieved by the Jamaican vocalist Jesse Royal. Backed by a terrifically energized band, his roots reggae, together with the positivity that he exhibited through his lyrics, livened up the crowd that had amassed at his stage.
It’s the heightened level of consciousness in his music that really had the audience vibing with him. His impact on the crowd was akin to that of Nattli Rize’s in that throughout his 30 minute set he explicitly emphasized the power of the people, and the need to effectuate change through action. Being one of the few artist’s at One Love originally from Jamaica, there was no questioning his authenticity, and the realness he lay down with his message was accentuated with the energy he brought with his lively stage presence.
