“Growing up as a youth in Jamaica during the 70s and 80s it was impossible to go anywhere and not hear Dennis Brown’s music. I’ve been a Dennis Brown fan since I was a little boy, I love all of his songs, especially Love Has Found Its Way. He made a lasting impact on the world because of the quality of his music. His vocals were amazing, which added a mesmerizing quality to all of his songs. He was a truly great singer,” Shaw said.
Lyrical Shaw given-name James Shaw is anticipating a warm reception to his version of ‘Love Has Found Its Way’ when it is released on March 30.
