RELEASES NEW SINGLE CPR
EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE VIA IRIE MAGAZINE
Toronto, ON – November 7, 2016 – Toronto artist, JungleManSam, has released his latest single, CPR, which premiered on Irie Magazine. The single is from his forthcoming EP, which will be released in early 2017. CPR was written by JungleManSam, Cameron Breithaupt, and Kirsten Urbas, and produced by Bus Up Shop. The track is an uplifting and unique infusion of reggae and dancehall, with electronic inflections and Latin vibes.
“CPR is one of the first songs that I wrote on my little guitar when I was travelling Peru. There’s been so many times in my life when someone’s beauty has ‘taken my breath away,’ so I thought I would play with that imagery and make the turn of phrase a little darker and weirder,” JungleManSam says of the track’s inspiration. “I recorded a voice-note and sent the song back to Canada and my producer, Ernesto (of Bus Up Shop), sent me back the rough version of the beat that we would build off together with Nick, also of Bus Up Shop. CPR represents the JungleMan sound with pop-inspired hooks, and a Latin-influenced big electronic beat by production team Bus Up Shop.”
JungleManSam is a new breed of musician. Be it solo or backed by a full band, his dynamic sound can be described as a blend of pop, dance, and world music that incorporates elements of Dancehall, Soca, Reggaeton, and Hip Hop.
Growing up in the city of Toronto and playing music since early childhood, JungleManSam (aka Sam Morton) credits his influences to major recording artists such as Major Lazer, Machel Montano, Sean Paul, and of course the legendary Robert Nesta Marley.
Profoundly inspired by his personal adventures throughout Latin America, JungleManSam has crafted a collection of songs that capture both the energy and mystery of the exotic locations he visited during his travels. As a songwriter, he strives to inspire a sense of wanderlust, taking his listeners “there” by sharing the cultural flavours of the places he has been, and the stories of the people he meets. Through the power of technology, an open heart, and the grassroots movements that are reclaiming original and authentic music, JungleManSam is a refreshing infusion of passion, soul, pop, and talent that captivates the heart of his audiences.
