Spiritual “Stand Up To Rasta” Background:
“Stand Up To Rasta” is track 2 on Spiritual’s debut album, Awakening that dropped back in February and arrives just as reggae music is resurgent in its homeland again thanks to artists like Chronixx and Alborosie. The latter shared Spiritual’s breakthrough hit “Marathon” and introduced him to Clifton “Specialist” Dillon. Under Specialist’s direction, Spiritual has been able to realize his musical vision at last, and deliver an album that can stand alongside the seventies’ classics that inspired him as a youth.
When we were sent the “Stand Up To Rasta” song, Spiritual told The Pier: “Big Raspect to all Humanitarians. Im very impressed with the response I’ve been getting for ‘Stand up to Rasta’, This song is for all Rasta who suffered the damage and brutality we all went through in the past. This is my Spiritual Anthem I’ve written for that purpose, I’m very pleased with all the people who respect and understand this story, Blessings and Honor to my Rasta Teachers who have passed, Bob Marley and Joseph Hill. More love and new life for all my Humanitarian people, blessings always.”

Watch: Spiritual – “Stand Up To Rasta”
Spiritual was raised in Allman Town, and sang in his local choir before embracing Rastafari. He was orphaned at an early age, and could have joined the throngs of young hopefuls at any number of studios and sound-systems scattered throughout the city. Instead, he shunned fame and helped to heal the broken society around him by counseling the poor and needy. Music was in his blood and he continued to write songs, but Rastafari was his true calling.
There are traces of Burning Spear and Culture in his voice, whilst the songs hark back to an era when artists were judged on their integrity, both musical and otherwise.
“I’m a spiritual person, and I like songs with spiritual messages in them – songs about life and our place in it, and that make you think about what you’re doing,” he explains. “I write songs that are supposed to make people feel good about one another, and that can show you something positive about life.”
“I am a servant of Jah for the children of the world with one Aim and one Destiny”
