Artist Name: Geneman Birth Name: Marvin Kent Stovell Birth Place and Date: Bermuda July 21, 1966
Official Bio A native Bermudian, Geneman, was blessed to be surrounded by music all his life. Born to a family of extremely talented musicians, and singers, he discovered his love and aptitude for music, at a very young age.
The anointed reggae singer, man of many voices, was raised in the music arena singing in gospel choirs, and groups. However, it was only after becoming acquainted with God, his desire to explore the boundaries of his talent took root.
He made his first recording debut, with a contemporary Christian Group, called Destiny. His God given skills and talents gave him the opportunity to sing, write, and arrange on the project.
As a lyricist, producer and arranger, his appreciation for many styles of music is apparent, specifically reggae, his first love. Greatly influenced by the creativity and unique styles of Bob Marley, (the king of reggae) and Beres Hammond, his musical interpretation took form.
In 1998, Geneman released his first gospel reggae album, "Righteous in Christ", an extraordinary rendition of tracks that will make you dance, soothe your spirit and heal your soul. After "Righteous in Christ," Geneman released his sophomore effort, "The Light".
Geneman's professional career has given him the opportunity to record with well-known Christian reggae group "Christafari". On their 1999 release titled, "Word, Sound and Powerâ€š" Geneman performed a duet with Mark Mohr for the award nominated, "Emancipation Proclamation."
His quest to touch people's lives is demonstrated by his humility, song and ministry performance. Geneman believes that the vehicle of gospel reggae will reach untapped populations within the world and cause change in the hearts of man to the glory of Jesus Christ.

BIO: Suwilanji Mumba is a Zambian born artist who has truly achieved her life-long dream of having a successful career in music.
Born in 1983, Suwilanji discovered her potential in music at a very tender age. Although she was always interested in music, her talent did not become evident until she joined her church choir. It was there that Suwilanji was taught how to sing.
Upon completion of her education in 2003, Suwilanji began a serious journey in her pursuit of a career in music. It was at that time that she joined many different bands and music groups in order to gain experience and exposure.
Since her early musical exposure in her home town in Zambia, Suwilanji has performed in countries all over Africa including: Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia and Botswana, and most recently in Rochester, NY, USA.
She has performed live with many well known recording artists and worship leaders including Michael W. Smith, Tommy Walker, Ronnie Kenoly and many others.
In addition to her live concerts, Suwilanji has become a successful recording artist. Her debut album was received with great excitement and has sold over 50,000 copies in Zambia. More than half the tracks on this album are major hits and have received major radio airplay.
She has enjoyed several award nominations (2007 and 2008) in the “Best Female Artist” category and won awards including “Best Gospel Artist” in 2010.
Even with her many achievements, Suwilanji’s life was not easy. There were many challenges that she went through and had to overcome. When Suwilanji was born, she was unable to speak. For most of her childhood, she never uttered a word. But miraculously at the age of nine, she began to speak.
In 2005, Suwilanji was involved in a terrible automobile accident in which several people were badly hurt, but God preserved her life. Again, this was a mighty work of God in her life.
At another trying period in her life, Suwilanji fell sick with an illness that kept her in a coma for two weeks with only a heartbeat as evidence that she was still alive. But once again, God saw her through and she is alive and well today and able to give her testimony.
Although she had been blessed with great success in her music career, Suwilanji always remembered the many hinderances that she had experienced. She began to wonder if pursuing music was the will of God for her life, so she asked God for a sign.
It was then that God reassured her that indeed music was His will for her life. She realized that once God calls someone to a purpose, no matter what hinderances come their way, those hinderances will never stop them. One will never die until that purpose and God’s will has come to pass in their life, and they have accomplished all for which they have been called to do.
Now more than ever, Suwilanji believes that God has a great purpose for her life, and that He would work through her to touch many people’s lives and transform them through the ministry of her music. She knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that she has been called to missions and is determined to use the great gift and anointing God has given her to glorify God and bless others and help transform lives.
Wayne Stoddart hot new single Three Cs speaks to decisions and their consequences or rewards. For every decision good or bad there is an effect, (the cause/effect principle). The song is performed on a mellow 70s Wailers-like one drop roots reggae rhythm. It is reggae music in its purest form; a timeless classic for sure!
There is definitely a Bob Marley and the Wailers influence on this track. This is understandably so as the song is produced by Aston Barrett Jr. son of Wailers Bassist and Nephew of the drummer Aston & Carlton Barrett respectively.
The new single is penned and performed by multi-award winning vocalist and song writer Wayne Stoddart and introduces the Reggae Force Band which consist of American reggae “white-chick” bassist Alaina Reed, Aston Barrett Jr. and veteran keyboardist Peter “Pan” Williamson.
There is a pleasant balance of heartwarming reggae music and a potent message of virtue of life on this track. It is truly a Psalm built around a delightfully catchy chorus. It will make you want to dance and sing for sure.
Simply put, it is pulsating reggae music, beautiful soul searching poetry and sweet melodic vocals. We say A+ for this one!
Mystically, the song was written by Wayne Stoddart over 10 years ago. However, the artist opted to wait for the right musicians to work this one and may I say it was worth the wait. ENJOY!! Reviewed By Syboney S for Undiluted Muzik
