Considered one of the most prolific songwriters in the Jamaican music industry, Reggae luminary Bugle has taken personal tragedy and turned it into a masterfully crafted song titled 'Cherish Life'.
The masterpiece which stems from a number of personal experiences including the loss of his brother as well as close friend Kunte and more recently the near tragic encounter of famed sound system selector Nickomatic (Chromatic Sound System) provided the blueprint for the thought provoking composition.
"Loosing a few friends and family suddenly__ including my brother who introduced me to music and in more recent times Kunte, who was like a brother to me was very hard. Nickomatic from Chromatic sound system is a personal friend of mine also and as many are aware he recently faced some difficult times with a medical condition which threatened his life and all those events were the catalyst that inspired me to pen this song." - Bugle explained.
