Jah Love - Var Releases Debut Single
05/03/2019 by Press Release
Singer and songwriter Var (former lead singer of Pentateuch) releases his first official single Jah Love across all digital platforms on May 3, on the Supow label and his own Hillsman Records. The acoustic song features Var, accompanied by Shaquir McQueen on guitar, singing a beautiful psalm of praise about the infinite love of the Almighty.
No matter one’s faith or creed, there are some things we all believe and feel, like the inspiring and overwhelming sense of awe and gratitude, of which Var sings. “His love gives me joy, makes me high like a ganja,” he croons in the song’s opening lines.
“Your love is perpetual, your love is so special, your love is forever, Jah,” Var continues in the song, which feels authentic, free-flowing and organic. The young singer also finds inspiration in Psalm 23, which he paraphrases quite appropriately in his verse. Caught in the emotion, he sings out after the second verse until the song nears its end.
Var says he is happy Jah Love is finally being released and it is being done under his label. “People know me from my work with Pentateuch Movement or Inna De Yard, but this is now me as a solo artiste, with my own production and label involved,” says Var. “Hillsman Records is me and my cousin, Shaquir, who plays the guitar on Jah Love.”
The single was recorded at Small World Studio and co-produced and mixed by Supow, a label operated by singer and producer Patrice Bart-Williams, a Sierra Leonean- German singer-songwriter and music producer. “We have a very good partnership over the years; and we give thanks for the support,” says Var.
When he is not pursuing his solo endeavours, Var is a touring guest with Reggae collective Inna De Yard, with whom he has performed at numerous festivals across Europe and the United States. Also, a songwriter, Var has co-written songs for Raging Fyah, Kabaka Pyramid, Richie Spice and Duane Stephenson. Var and Hillsman Records have much more in store...
