Portugal's #1 reggae artist Richie Campbell makes his US début with the album "Focused" which will be released through Tommy Boy Entertainment on October 29th, 2013. The album was released earlier this year in his native Portugal and quickly climbed to the #1 position on iTunes on week of release. The success was repeated last week upon its release in Germany where the album is sitting at #6 on the Top Reggae albums chart.
Richie Campbell has been tearing up the reggae music scene all over the world since the ripe age of 16. Having already collaborated and toured with some of the best names in the business, including SOJA, Kymani Marley, Anthony B, and Gentleman. Richie’s reputation far outweighs his years. “Focused” contains features and contributions from many of these artists, as well as current noteworthy Jamaican artists and producers Ikaya, Turbulence, Don Corleon, Big Finga, and Specialist and includes his most recent singles, "Blame It On Me" and "That's How We Roll" which have both contributed to his success, not only in his native Portugal, but in Europe and the Americas as well.
Campbell continues to spread his message of love and responsibility throughout all of his songs with a smooth voice that speaks of ills whilst lifting up the soul.
