Rusty Zinn releases new single ‘Only Thing that Matters’
Rusty Zinn releases the new single ‘Only Thing that Matters’ / ‘Only Dub That Matters’ on Watson Unlimited Music. The tune, cowritten by Zinn and producer Patrick ‘Dr Watson’ Quine, is firmly in the Lovers' Rock genre of reggae, with a classic sound reminiscent of U.K. productions of the late 70s and early 80s. Rusty calls his sound ‘A Journey to the Soul of Lovers’ Rock Steady’.
For Oakland, CA based Rusty Zinn and Vancouver, BC based Dr Watson this represents the first in a series of cross border collaborations planned over the next year. Despite the calibre of their reggae, neither producer nor artist are West Indian. Rather, Zinn and Watson found a kinship in the fact that both have strong ties to the Caribbean community in their lives outside music, and both have been playing reggae music for decades.
Indeed both have enjoyed some success working with venerable names in the genre. Watson’s impressive resume boasts a brief stint playing bass for the legendary Alton Ellis and working as band leader for artists like Ken Boothe and Tanya Stephens, while Zinn has recorded with Jamaican super-producers Sly & Robbie as well as U.K. producer Phillip Gadd, and has even appeared as a stand in member of classic Jamaican vocal group Carlton & His Shoes.
This is Rusty’s first release since his much lauded album ‘The Reggae Soul of Rusty Zinn’ (RockBeat Records) in 2015. That album, with cuts such as ‘Rise Up’, ‘Angie I Love You’ and ‘She Comes From Nothing’ brought Rusty’s name to the attention of a large and growing international audience.
The song is available to buy as a download on iTunes, Amazon Music, eMusic.com and all major digital retailers. And available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal and all major streaming services.
There is no doubt that ‘Only Thing That Matters’ will continue to grow an audience for both artist and producer. Stay tuned for more !
