Still riding on the increasing success and popularity of their two latest singles, Brightest Light and Skyfiya, the Uprising Roots Band last week premiered the video for the single Skyfiya on Jamaican television, and has been getting good reviews about the project.

With the song already popular in reggae markets such as North America and Europe, the video is set to trek the path made by the roots reggae single when it was released last month.

The video premiered on Jamaican cable television, and is making its way into the mainstream schedule of rotations, something that manager Darren Hamilton attributes to the "realness and feel of the video".

"The song Skyfiya is a real and true reggae song that is sweeping reggae markets around the world. We're pleased with how well the song is picking up, and the video will help to give it that much more push to take it to the next level," Hamilton said.

He continued that like the single, which was recorded, written, and produced by the band at their studios in East Kingston, the video is poised to please music and reggae lovers.

"What is true is that The Uprising Roots Band has a sound and mastery of that sound that gives them a real, raw, authentic reggae flavour. The band loves making music, they love every aspect of producing and creating music, and they are a set of extremely talented and diverse musicians," Hamilton remarked.

The Uprising Roots Band makes music to uplift and invigorate minds and spirits, a mission which has been adapted for the production of their music videos. As a complement of a talented set of musicians, the band is focused on the many ways they can please the ear, uplift the mind, and soothe the soul with their music.

With the release of the video, the band promises a special level of creativity and dedication when it comes to other videos it will make in support of upcoming singles, and Hamilton guaranteed that more will soon be heard from The Uprising Roots Band .
