Prodigal Son who is signed to to VP/Atlantic Records and Greensleeves for the distribution of his new CD, expects to break new ground in the international market.
Prodigal Son explained that his new album, 7699, will be distributed worldwide by the record labels. He said he had been in talks with VP Records for some time.
"I did a show in Orlando. I was the only gospel artiste on it. One of the VP reps was there and I gave them a copy of my (previous) CD, Half Way There," he said.
The new album will be launched on June 2 at Freedom Fest that will feature other acts like Dunamis, Omari, Ryan Mark, Shawn Lypher, Dwayne Murphy, The Radikal Yard Band and others. Thereafter, the album will be available in stores and online by June 12.
"There is no limit to what we are looking at. We are at the baby stage. I give God thanks. It's a humbling experience. I hope this can open doors, not just for me, but for other Caribbean and Jamaican gospel musicians. If I represent well, then they will start looking at other people. This is definitely a good boost for my career. I am making giant steps and I thank God for this opportunity," he explained.
In addition to 7699, which represents 1976 - the year of his birth and 1999 - the year he became a Christian, Prodigal Son is also working on making a name for his restaurant Eleita's Soup and Grill. He also hopes that his distribution deal can help to catapult his record label Radikal Yaad.
