US-based dancehall sex bomb Maricia RaMed is a multi-talented artiste-songwriter who is now generating a buzz with her breakout single, 'All Night Long'.  

"The buzz around the video has been incredible, my subscriber base is growing online and I am getting a lot of feedback from family and friends in Jamaica, plus I am gaining new followers on social media everyday," she said. 


A video for the single has been added to rotation on HYPE, RE, FLOW and CVM TV. 

They will be releasing more videos to compliment the next singles in the coming months


She is embarking on a musical coup d' etat with the release of three albums: reggae-dancehall albums 'Adoration' and 'Prosperity', as well as a dancehall pop album, 'PRr 59'. The albums have been released and is available on all platforms.


They are promoting 3 singles off each album : 'All Night Long' from PRr 59 album; 'Love Overdose' from Adoration album, and 'Empress RaMed' from the  'Prosperity' album.


"The central theme of the album 'Adoration' is love.  The album 'Prosperity' is inspirational and it encourages people to use their minds to acquire all their desires in life. Both albums do reflect my personal philosophy in life. The album 'PRr 59' is a dancehall pop album which is all about good vibes, dancing and fun," she said. 


With the release of this trinity of albums, known as RaMedStudiosProject 59. RaMed Studios, Maricia's label, is plotting a musical blitz to "bring great music back".


"The significance of what RaMed Studios Project 59 is doing is bringing great music back," she said.


She was born and raised in the rustic rural district of Troja, St. Catherine where her family recognized her musical ability, and she performed regularly at churches, concerts, weddings, and various functions honing her skills. 

She attended Titchfield High School and was quite active in the Titchfield Chorale which performed at the JCDC festivals annually and various arenas across the island. 


Maricia later attended The Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. Maricia is one of the founding members as well as band leader and lead singer of the Therapy Band which was formed at Edna Manley College. 


"I know this might sound cliche, but i really didn't choose music. I was born with music in me. For as far back into my childhood as I can recall it's what i've wanted to do. I was always singing and performing somewhere. At one point in my life, I had stopped doing music and I felt as if something inside me died," she said. 


She embarked on a solo career and wowed audiences at the Ewarton Jerk Festival in St. Catherine, gaining the attention of several music insiders. 

However, she migrated to the USA in 2014 where she met PRr A RaMed who became her mentor producer and manager who gave her a whole new sound and image with a universal appeal. Producer and manager PRr A RaMed from the outset told Maricia RaMed "we will make music that have a worldwide and Universal appeal." 


The chemistry was instant and they soon became a dynamic duo. PRr later signed her to his RaMed Studios recording label and she took on the stage name Maricia RaMed.


"I do write most of my music, however, my manager PRr A RaMed writes as well. My brand of music can be described as love, fun and inspirational. My inspiration comes from many different things, sometimes it's a personal experience, current affairs, a track giving me a certain vibe, or the universe sending me a song," she said.  


Some of her musical inspirations are PRr A RaMed, Peter Tosh, Beres Hammond, Whitney Houston, Marcia Griffiths and Tina Turner.
