Yaad Settingz: My fans describe me as Bob Marley’s daughter, says Jamaican singer Kristine Alicia

Speaking on Yaad Settingz on Asaase 99.5 Accra with King Lagazee, McCaw said she became a lover of reggae because she was a backing vocalist for some professionals in the field

Jamaican singer and music teacher Kristine Alicia McCaw has said that she did not believe in her voice, and never thought she could sing until much later in her life, adding that her fans sometimes describe her as Bob Marley’s daughter.

Speaking on Yaad Settingz on Asaase 99.5 Accra with King Lagazee, McCaw said she became a lover of reggae because she was a backing vocalist for some professionals in the field.

Yaad Settingz is a 100% reggae and dancehall programme that captures the true spirit of Jamaica and brings home to Africa, the sounds that have inspired generations of new music genres.

“While I was in graduate school, I was singing at a place, and Papa San [a Jamaican reggae, dancehall and gospel singer] was there, and he asked me to sing background music for him,” McCaw said.

“There was later a reggae team that scouted me and started to produce some music for me. I got into reggae because I was doing some background singing for reggae singers.”

According to her, “I believe the influence was there heavily. I would start to travel with them, just watching them make the reggae infuse my blood. But I also believe reggae has always been inside of me.”

“Sometimes, you don’t know what or who you are, but destiny will always have its way. Every time I do reggae, people tell me I’m Bob Marley’s daughter, because reggae always comes naturally to me.”
