Hayereyah"s debut album - 'Humility Before Honour' has been a labour of love & a long time coming. With songs dating back as far as 1999, the recording process began in December 2007 & the album was finally ready for release in August 2014, a six & a half year journey.
Lovingly produced by Hayereyah & Sojourner in Sojourner's covert South London studio with the Human Bridge Band & guests. Featuring the talents of 24 great musicians from London & beyond including ballistic blasts from the mighty Soothsayers horn section & contributions from members of Juju Rock, Skillosophi, The Children, the Powers Band, the Borderline Band & more...
The album contains 13 songs in a spectrum of styles & moods, all somehow held inside Hayereyah's trademark umbrella of "Original ReggaeFolkBlues" - Roots to the Heart! 'Humility Before Honour' is a rhythmic lyrical offering of spiritual consciousness to all those ready to receive it.
Peace & Love.
