Clinark say’s about the filming, ‘the vibes were real good, the videographer (Anthony Redman) (pictured) did an amazing job, filming shots for two videos in succession, because it was the only time we could capture them on their world tour, Gramps and Irie Love made us all feel at ease, I laughed so much at Irie Loves jokes between the shots.’
Peter Morgan was not too well after the great Morgan Heritage concert at the Astoria the night before, so he had to rest his voice, but he gave all the onlookers a great performance of the first single from Clinark’s album ‘ Life in the Ghetto.’ The rest of the video had already been filmed with Clinark by DOF films on locations in Edmonton, North London UK.

Review: Journey to Foreign Review Editor: Dub Manageress
Bermudian Reggae Artist, Clinark, finally arrives with this much heralded debut studio album in tow, Journey to Foreign. This talented solo artist, has come through the perils of the music business , currently remaining independent under his own record label Nurture Projects and despite the world slump, to deliver us this gem of the ‘sure to be a classic’ album. For any fan of Roots & Culture, it has been worth waiting the 4 years it’s taken to get to the decks. This international project brings together the works of Bermuda, UK, Jamaica, & Hawaii. The final production was done at Stingray Studios in London UK with producers Mafia & Fluxy and Dilly as final production engineer and Gussie P. Maxi Priest’s own voice engineer Livingstone Brown giving a new treatment to Clinark’s voice on the track ‘fast becoming collector’s items.’ While Clinark’s unique ‘Garnett -esque’ (Silk) voice and Marley-esque’ (Bob) delivery can capture any ear that seeks clarity and inspiration, this 20 track album (19 co -writtien songs and 20 riddims, overflows with quality from start to finish. Some of the tracks featured on Clinark Live in Holland (2006) debut album, and so too does the remake of hit single ‘DemCome’ ’10’’ (2004) (Dread Unity) which Clinark sang under the name of Dillinjah. Listen to Clinark’s plentiful collaborations, from the poignant ‘Lifein the Ghetto’ feat. Gramps and Peter Morgan to the street smart message for the youth, in ‘No Where TV’feat. Fantan Mojah where were warned about the doctrines of TV and video games. Bermuda is overflowing with talent as Clinark blesses us again with ‘Sign of the Times’ feat. Troy Anthony. There’s so much more with equally jostling for top ten slots are the collaborations from Richie Spice, Luciano, Maxi Priest, Kofi , Brinsley Forde (Aswad) and Irie Love. Listen out for the heart rendering track, ‘Angel Eyes’ sure to be played at weddings and the like for a lifetime. Enjoy your journey on this top quality album!
