Silver Kamel Audio recording artists 'Deyansa and Riddim Zone' have been nominated for an award in the reggae category out of over 500,000 songs.

Please join Silve Kamel in congratulating Silver Kamel Audio recording artists 'Deyansa and Riddim Zone' who have been nominated for an award in the reggae category/genre of the 'Just Plain Folks' music award show that will be held at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN on the 29th of August 2009.

Deyansa's CD 'Holding On To Life' SKCD025 was produced and released by Silver Kamel at the end of 2005 and was 18 months in the making. Deyansa wrote the lyrics for the songs and then hooked up with fellow Jamaicans, Keith Senior and Jonathan T. Ford who created the backing tracks. The band has toured with such reggae dignitaries as Culture, Meditations, Augustus Pablo, Cutty Ranks, and even Gregory Isaacs! Giving their able support on tours that took them throughout the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

Keith Senior and Jonathan Ford have been session musicians for Coxsone Dodd, Lee "The Upsetter" Perry, and Ms. Pottinger performing on many hit songs. They also worked on such great projects as "The Black Ark Dub" and "The Upsetters" albums. Keith is a multi-talented musician who is very comfortable in the studio no matter what instrument you place in front of him, keyboards, bass and rhythm guitar, or drums. Jonathan is an accomplished bass player and was one of the original members of the Rhythm 1000 band. Rounding off the core of Riddim Zone is Ian Joseph, a drummer with a passion who hails from the tropical islands of Trinidad & Tobago. He joined the band two years ago after touring in Asia. You can listen to the tracks at

The title track 'Holding On To Life' was submitted to 'Just Plain Folks' (JPF) in 2007 when the good folks over there started the award process. Apparently they must have been overwhelmed with the response, receiving over 500,000 songs from bands and musicians from all over the world! And it wasn't till June of this year, 2009, that we received the good news of our nomination. If you would like to attend the award show or find out who else was nominated and to see if you qualify to vote go here:

So it is with great pride and pleasure that Silver Kamel offers sincere congratulations to Deyansa on his achievement of being in the Top Ten nominated in the reggae category/genre for his track 'Holding On To Life'. We hope to see you in Nashville.
