Dancehall powerhouse vocalist Cashan has released a video for the soulful 'Journey on My Own' on the True Words riddim. The song, released last year, has racked up thousands of hits on youtube since its release.   
"I am very proud of this song, it brings across a range of emotions and I am loving the positive feedback on social media and in my community, and the video has " she said. 

There are plans in place to shoot a video for the project soon given the interest it has been generating on the nation's airwaves. 


She grew up in the sleepy district of Amity Hall in Moneague, St Ann. She attended Ocho Rios High where she soon developed a reputation among her peers for her soulful voice. While in grade nine, she was introduced to a studio by a friend, and she recorded her first single, 'I'm Not Crazy'. At the tine, she was a Jehovah's Witness so she had no occasion to sing in a church choir, however, she participated in concerts as part of her duties as a member of the Girls Guide. 
After leaving high school, she was introduced to a studio by fellow artiste Gevano, and soon after,in 2012, began to record singles for New York-based label, 5 Star Records, headed by Clifton Lawrence. However, the relationship deteriorated and she refused to sign a contract with the label, so they parted ways. 
"At that time, experience and money was lacking, both of which you need to make it in the music business. The studio was trying to put out too many artistes at the time, so chalk it up to a lesson learned," she said.
She inked a contract with True Blue Family Records, and worked closely with the label between 2015 to 2016, where she scored a minor hit with 'Wife', which came out on the '90s Gold' riddim which also featured dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel. Not pleased with the pace of her career, she terminated the contract with True Blue Family Records. 
She soon linked up with Sandy 'Big Eddie' Edwards, who re-recorded one of her earlier singles, the sexually provocative 'Vice Grip' which was released on iTunes and other downloadable platforms. Then she met producer-engineer Sasaine through a mutual acquaintance, 'Bread'.
"I needed someone to mix my songs and I began to correspond with Sasaine, and we had good chemistry so we began to record a number of songs together," she said. 
She has built up a decent repertoire of songs such as the dancehall-influenced 'Leprecaun', the R & B-tinged and the roots-reggae 'Make It Up'. Now that she has an investor, Jermaine Hinds, she is ready to show the world what she has to offer.
"Whatever riddim that you throw at me, I can find a melody or a groove to make it work, whatever the riddim talks to me and says, that's what I am going to do," she said.
