Qshan's unique gift as a vocalist exemplifies a man blessed by the Almighty JAH RasTafari not only for his high value of spirituality and family, but also his undeniable faith as a SIMEON (tribe) to achieve. In the summer of 2001, J&D Records released his debut CD aptly titled, Journey. This album includes collaborations with Yami Bolo and also Richie Spice and is an effervescent rumination of his persona, innate musical ability and a voice that echoes the sentiments and concerns of the world's population. The single "Journey" peaked at #1 on WLIB top 20 NY chart and in 2002 the single "Where Do We Go" peaked at #2 on their top 10 chart. Reggae Vibes Production NL review …………..
