Calibe

If you've been to a Beenie Man or Kevin Lyttle concert, then chances are you've heard Calibe. A talented Caribbean singer who splits her time between her native Jamaica and Miami, she has made her mark in the industry as a back-up singer. But if her two EPs, 2003's First Draft and this year's Follow Me, are proof, she deserves to be heard on her own merits. Opening with a fantastic intro that finds her layering multiple a cappella parts, Follow Me is a solid introduction to her formula for "alternative reggae," or R&B pop music accented with fluid, rootsy vocal performances. She promoted the disc with a showcase concert at Power Studios this past June 1 and is following that up with an appearance at Purdy Lounge Thursday during a dread surf throwdown sponsored by Kulcha Shok Records. -- Mosi Reeves
