Project Description

MY CHILD BY MORTIMER

Jamaican singer-songwriter Mortimer releases “My Child,” the fourth single from his anticipated full-length debut. The album, titled From Within, was produced by Winta James (often in conjunction with Mortimer), and will be released September 20, 2024 by Overstand Entertainment and Easy Star Records. The new single, which is accompanied by an official music video directed by Dennis “Denni” Fyffe (whose credits include videos for Protoje, Lila Iké, and Jesse Royal), can be seen and heard HERE.

From Within is a series of songs that tell an overarching story of Mortimer’s journey – spanning his loves and passions, his struggles along the way, his ability to overcome these trials, and how his Rastafarian faith and love of family have helped guide him through it all. From the introspective, acoustic-heavy “Whole Heap,” to the slinky, sensual dancehall groove of “Slowly,” followed by the propulsive, modern roots sounds of “Not A Day Goes By” and “My Child,” each of the LP’s singles released so far boasts a broad and dramatic sonic palette.

The release also dips heavily into melodies inspired by ‘80s pop and R&B, as well as a surprising foray into the under-represented sub-genre of reggae disco. In an era where artists are encouraged to sling constant content that disappears after a few weeks, Mortimer has taken his time to create a timeless piece of music that traces his personal path in a way that is bound to connect deeply to his listeners.
