"The most talented reggae artist on the planet."   - The Beat

"Living In The Positive will catapult Nasio from Reggae’s margins to the forefront of its conscious movement. Nasio may be the best non-Jamaican reggae singer ever."   - Reggaematic

From the island of Dominica comes the new voice of reggae and roots music. Lovers of reggae music throughout the world know Nasio’s name, his voice and his conscious lyrics. He has been bringing his grass roots message of revolution, positivism, and freedom to the people for more than a decade. His three self-produced albums and many live performances have made him the most talked about young reggae artist on the scene. 

For the first time, Nasio’s Living In The Positive is available worldwide and he will take to the road to bring his message and music to an ever-growing audience.
