Making A Difference Through Music: Golden Chyld’s “Uphill Battle”

What’s your story?  Everyone has one and we’ve all experienced difficult times in our lives.  Although the details of our stories may differ, we can all relate to the lyrics of Golden Chyld’s “Uphill Battle”.  This uplifting new single speaks of his own personal journey of overcoming adversity, despite life’s many obstacles. 

It’s a stark contrast to his previous releases, “Joanna Wine” and Rise Up”, that are firmly rooted in dancehall.  “Uphill Battle” is a softer ballad with gospel and reggae influences.  Golden Chyld sets a strong spiritual atmosphere with heavenly strings and soothing saxophones for this soulful single as he sings, “never let the rest of us forget, we have a duty to [help] the less fortunate”.  This isn’t just a lyric in the song; he is taking social action as well.

After the success with his previous single, “Joanna Wine”, Canadian-born reggae artist, Golden Chyld, returns with his follow up single “Rise Up”.

This up-tempo, drum-driven reggae anthem flows with conscious lyrics that urges social action.  “The single ‘Rise Up’ was one of the core messages I wanted to convey to people for 2014.  Irrespective of what you’re going through, rising against all odds and doing your part to make society a better place is always one of the most lasting impacts you can make.  That’s what I want to do with my music: leave a lasting impact on fans and society,” Golden Chyld tells us.

“Rise Up” is now available on iTunes.  You can follow Golden Chyld on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Have you ever been cheated on?  If so, you can definitely relate to the lyrics of Golden Chyld’s brand new song “Joanna Wine”.  This Canadian dancehall/reggae artist addresses the issue of infidelity that plagues our society.  During the chorus, Golden Chyld sings to his unfaithful significant other:

“Well you got Joe, well meet Miss Joanna Wine.

[She doesn’t] only love me my for my dollar card.

When I’m with you, she’ll be on my mind,

And all she wants is my time.”

In this plot driven music video, Golden Chyld handles his situation on his own terms.  Instead of getting mad, he gets even and finds a mistress of his own.  Watch until the end to see the conclusion of his story (there’s a nice twist that we won’t give away)!
