'Imisi is headed by brothers David (Tevita) Fohe and Jubilee (Siupeli) Fohe. On "Visions of the Father," David's sweet textured voice eloquently contrasts Jubilee's smooth nasal tone and clever singjay stylings. 'Imisi has been compared to everyone from Luciano to Gregory Isaacs, and even labeled "The Reggae Katinas." In addition to the vibrant vocals and lush harmonies, the band lays down some top-notch melodies and hypnotic beats. These addictive cuts also contain outstanding musical performances by some of Jamaica's finest reggae musicians mixed in a dubwise fashion.
“There is honestly not one bad track on this album--It is all killer and no filler. If you only buy one gospel reggae album this year, make it "Forward". Pick up your copy today. YOU WON'T REGRET IT!”
-Nosmo King | Forward Album
“'Imisi’s music "sits smoothly in the lovers rock mode, praising Jesus Christ as the most high." Their heart-felt lyrics of praise, sung smoothly over rolling bass-lines and infectious beats, are the perfect recipe to satisfy any appetite--sugar couldn’t add any sweetness to these tasty tunes.
-The Beat Magazine | Visions of the Father
“With their strong introduction on "Gravity," 'Imisi's established themselves as voice of island music and future of Gospel reggae.”
-Mark Mohr (Christafari) | Visions of the Father
"The songwriting on this album is flat-out excellent, and the vocal performances will give you chicken skin.."
-Quino (Big Mountain) | Visions of the Father
