CHERINE ANDERSON

In our modern day parade of glamour, glitz and unmerited superstardom, Cherine Anderson has taken today's road less traveled; the path of paying dues, cultivating her abilities and developing her signature Dancehall Soul sound; a mixture of reggae, dancehall, soul and r&b. After the past two years of constant work by the songstress, the name Cherine Anderson has become synonymous with several titles: chart topping and award winning singer, thought provoking songwriter, award winning actress, music video director, magazine cover model, dynamic stage performer, vibrant collaborator and fashion forward stylista.

Having collaborated and toured extensively with the prolific Michael Franti & Spearhead and the legendary Sly & Robbie, Jamaican singer-songwriter Cherine Anderson already positioned herself as "one to watch". She also appears on official remixes with major recording artists Madonna, Britney Spears, Sir Paul McCartney and Wyclef Jean. Now, with the release of The Introduction-Dubstyle EP, fans of Anderson and her signature DancehallSOUL sound can finally own some of her infectious melodies.

IN THE MOVIES:
At age 14, Cherine's formal professional career began when she starred in one of Jamaica's most successful films, Dancehall Queen. In 2003, Cherine combined her two loves, singing and acting, starring in the film One Love. Her voice lent two heartfelt songs to the film's soundtrack, and her acting talents earned her the MTV2/Urbanworld Film Festival Award for Best Actress in a Feature Film. Anderson returned to acting in 2007 to star in MTV Tempo's interactive drama Choices.

 

SHE'S ON THE GO...
Cherine has been introducing herself and her Dancehall Soul sound to audiences in the form of steady touring. In addition to performing at some of the biggest reggae festivals such as Reggae On The River, Ragga Muffins Festival , Reggae Rising, Reggae Sumfest, and Sting, Cherine has toured as the featured vocalist for Sly & Robbie on extensive tours, taking her across the United States , Canada and the UK.

Additionally, Anderson has toured extensively with Michael Franti & Spearhead as their opening act, as well as featured vocalist during their set in the US and Australia.
