The lovely and multi-talented Karian Sang has been very busy these days. With a brand new album and feature film under her belt, there are no limits for this singer-songwriter and actress. Karian’s latest EP, In The Mood, explores reggae/dancehall, pop, EDM and hip-hop with powerful lyrics on each track. The solid album contains six songs that symbolize a different “mood”. In addition to her new EP, Karian Sang has also completed her first feature film by starring alongside Christopher Martin in Jeremy Whittaker’s reggae music film, Destiny. With two powerhouse singers playing the lead roles, the movie is nothing short of entertaining. Recently, we caught up with Karian Sang to discuss her new album, movie and much more.

J Boog has gained popularity across the world
When you collaborate with famous artists like Tarrus Riley and Peetah Morgan (of Morgan Heritage), you know you’ve reached reggae super-stardom. If you haven’t heard of J Boog yet, then you’ve been missing out. He blends both Hawaiian and Jamaican reggae to create his own tropical style. Not only has Boog gained respect amongst the reggae elite, but he has also gained popularity all over North America, the Caribbean and Oceania.
J Boog was born in Long Beach, California, but grew up in the rough neighborhood of Compton, CA. His loving family kept him in line and off the streets by instilling a strong awareness of Samoan culture and tradition. He was soon to discover music at an early age and it would change his life forever.
