Publicist Bridgett Anderson said she was elated at the deal and such a move would extend the fan base of the group.
“It is hoped that this relationship will assist in expanding the reach of this talented group of musicians,” Anderson said in a release.
Darren Hamilton, band manager of the East Kingston-based group, outlined the agreement.
“They [VP Records] take the album on consignment and sell/distribute throughout their stores/network,” he said.
He said that this is the first agreement of this kind with a major distribution outlet for the band. The album, however, is also available online through Zojak Worldwide distribution network.
Uprising Band has released a number of singles including Brightest Light, Know Yourself, and Skyfyah, from which the album got its title. (Jamaica Observer)
