Part of Best of the Best
This is looking to be a big year for the Cayman Islands’ hottest group ThE iZ, as it keeps notching up accolades and is now set to perform one of the most recognised shows in the music business.
Coming off member Jason Gilbert’s/JG’s Grammy win earlier this year, the music group is taking the stage for its first international performance on 28 May at the Best of the Best Music Festival in Miami, Florida.
Best of the Best is an annual two-day music festival held in Miami that draws some of the biggest names in Hip Hop and Reggae. This year’s headliners include Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Rick Ross, Shabba Ranks, Damian and Stephen Marley and Alison Hinds.
“Getting a chance to be a part of a show of this calibre, our first performance in the United States – there are no words to describe it. We’re just so grateful,” said group member Lonney Love.
ThE iZ Manager Dane Ramoon said they are hoping this opportunity helps showcase their music to a wider audience, plus it puts the Cayman Islands on the international music map.
“Anyone who is in Miami from the Cayman Islands for the weekend should come down and check out this show. It will be a night to remember and an important milestone for our Islands’ musical presence on the world stage,” said Mr. Ramoon.
ThE iZ is a Cayman Islands/Miami based music production/songwriting group comprised of Jason Gilbert, Lonney Love McField and Stephen Cotterell. Its debut album, “Beach Club,” released in April 2010, featured hits “Tonight” and “Mind Trip”.
It later re-released the album in Japan, where it burned up the international charts. ThE iZ recent release, “Distance,” is a touching single dedicated to Japan in the wake of an earthquake and tsunami that ravaged the country earlier this year.
ThE iZ is putting the final touches on its sophomore album, slated for an August release.
