A little less than three years after the acoustic album " One Day ", Anthony Que continues to expand his influences and make his mark through extra-Jamaican collaboration. He returns once again to France for a partnership with 149 Records. " Meditation Time " was born as a result of his meeting with Babyclone Band and has led to artistic exchanges as unexpected as fruitful.

Drawing on his recent experience alongside Firehouse Crew and Sly & Robbie, Anthony Que presents an album that reflects real artistic maturity. Carefully interpreted by Babyclone Band, this album is entirely produced by 149 Records, which has taken the time to showcase all the musical qualities of the artist. Anthony Que takes us by surprise with a style to which we are not accustomed: profound lyrics set to music in the Roots tradition, and original productions recorded live, following in the footsteps of some of the great names he grew up with.

Anthony sings about life the way he conceives it, through love, freedom, or indeed meditation as a way to put aside the hard life of Kingston.

Come what may, " Meditation Time " will undoubtedly be one of the LP highlights of 2012. It contains key titles such as Ghetto Youth, Roots Man Skanking or Herb Of Life. But also a significant featuring with the Princess of Trinidad, Queen Omega, who lends her feminine and energetic flow for the duration of the duet Hold On.

Three years after " Jamaica No Problem ", Anthony Que continues to make his way with enthusiasm. With " Meditation Time " he presents a solid and varied album that confirms all his vocal and artistic qualities.

Anthony Que, whose real name is Terrence Anthony Matthie, was born in Kingston into a family of ten children. He spent most of his childhood in Belmont, a neighbourhood located next to the parish of St Andrew. He began singing when he was nine years old when he asked to be part of the school show. By the age of fourteen, his friends were calling him Singing Q - an abbreviation of Singing Quality - in reference to the quality of his voice.

As a teenager, Anthony Que was fortunate to find himself surrounded by good company for his musical and spiritual education as his neighbours included Beres Hammond, Luciano, Ducky Simpson of Black Uhuru and George Nooks. However, it was with the Missionary Band, a neighbourhood gospel group, that he took his first steps in the demanding world of Jamaican music.

For a while Anthony Que toured the studios of Kingston whilst holding down a job, and in 1997 he recorded his first single " Early Morning " for the Sugar Minott 's Youth Promotion .

That same year things really started to take off. He began a European tour alongside Daweh Congo and covered Poland, England and Germany.

Back in Kingston, he recorded for Harmony House - the label of his friend Beres Hammond - his second single " Spreading Jah Love " and " Same Road ", a duet with Jah Cure.

Following a very beneficial period of learning at Harmony House, Anthony Que decided to take the road to England to record his first album " A Brighter Day Is Coming ", and a series of singles for talented producers such as Sir BlackWAX, Mike Brooks, Stingray or Russ Disciples.

Having made a name for himself in England, in 2005 he recorded a brilliant album for Jet Star Phonographic in London, produced by Tony " Ruff Cutt" Phillips.

With a growing business in Europe, both in the studio and in sound systems, in 2006 Anthony decided to go back to his roots and returned to Jamaica. Thanks to his reputation he was able to participate in the " Reggae Sunsplash " and record his third album " Jamaica No Problem ". Video clips were produced from this album and some singles like " Listen to the people " featuring Gyptian remained in the national hit parade for several weeks.

Building on this success and with the backing of Sista Prod for years, he took the decision to tour in France to promote his new album distributed by Nocturne. During this tour he encountered Babyclone Band and the label 149 Records. They hit it off immediately, and as a result the band accompanied him on several occasions in France. Since then, collaboration with the band and the label has never ceased. This has led, among other things, to other concerts in France, and to a single on the album “ Datta Riddim ”.

He is currently preparing to release a new album, ” Meditation Time ", fruit of his collaboration with 149 Records. The first clip has just been released and Anthony is impatient to let the world discover this new work, which he considers to be his best to date. Imbued with spirituality and boundless energy to share, he will undoubtedly embark on a tour across Europe to promote it.

Anthony Que is an artist with extraordinary talent. Composer, singer and performer, he is one of the most promising artists of his generation. Most of his tracks are very deep and the unique quality of his voice often provokes a strong emotional reaction from his listeners from the first time they hear him. No matter what the style, whether it be dancehall, lovers rock or Nu Roots, his music has a peaceful effect on the crowds. He is a bedrock of reggae in Jamaica, and without doubt will play a crucial role in the future development of this music.
