REVIEW album Jehry Robinson 20/Twenty

Reggae, Rock, Rap & Passion-Jehry Robinson Releases Strange Music Debut Album '20/Twenty'


Jehry Robinson

After reading an interview with Strange Music CEO Travis O’Guin, Robinson urged his manager to reach out and find a way to set up a meeting, thinking it was a long shot she sent a private message via Instagram and the rest is history in the making. O’Guin and long- time partner Tech N9ne started in the basement of O’Guin’s home almost 21 years ago and have made Strange Music one, if not the top independent record labels in the world. Strange Music hosts an impressive roster of talented hip-hop all-stars but they have also had recent success in the pop world with the launch of their Strange Main label, so genre jumper Jehry Robinson fits right in with his mash-up of pop, reggae and melodic hip-hop.

On '20/Twenty' Robinson embraces lyrical heartache and life lessons and does not miss a beat but delivers many. From the adrenaline-fueled rap of “Daylight,” featuring Tech N9ne, to the more harmonious hip-hop feel on “Follow My Lead,” featuring King Iso. Pop, snap, and sway highlight Robinson’s soothing vocals on “In My Feels,” and the bright and bouncy “Closer To The Sun.” Whether it be the emotionally charged message of “Daddy Issues” featuring Jelly Roll, the rock tinged “Disagree,” the singer-songwriter leaning “Michael” or the reggae island feels of “Earthquakes,” “No Refunds,” and “Impatient,” Robinson naturally bounces between styles throughout the 20-songs on '20/Twenty'.

Throughout the songs on '20/Twenty' Robinson’s passion shines bright.
