San Francisco, CA - March 14, 2012 — At his San Francisco studio, mastering engineer Michael Romanowski worked with reggae singer Junior Toots on the CD master for his latest album, A Little Bit of Love, which was released in March 7, 2012 on Crown of Fire Records. Romanowski utilized his large selection of analog mastering compressors, EQs and Pacific Microsonics converters to tackle the rich, layered music, while monitoring with his studio's Focal Grand Utopia speakers. Junior Toots is launching the new CD at 'Pier 23' in San Francisco, on March 24.

Following in his father's footsteps and reggae roots, the son of legendary Reggae and Ska singer "Toots Hibbert," of 'Toots and the Maytals,' Junior Toots brings his own style and energy to the new release. Of the new album Junior Toots says, "Reggae music and the music business in general was impacted by the recession. So I was inspired more than ever to reincarnate the spirit and the feeling of good Reggae music and up-tempo Ska and to include lots of crowd participation at live performances. Also, my father's contribution to Reggae music has been a great inspiration. My children are my greatest inspiration for me because I want to be an inspiration for them and for the next generation of Hibberts."

On the mastering experience at Michael Romanowski's studio, he adds, "The session was great. Michael Romanowski is very professional. I was very pleased with the results and look forward to my next mastering session with Michael."

Singing in church in Jamaica as a youth played a key role in Junior Toots' path to his professional music career - like great reggae singers before him. While in Kingston, he was able to experience his father's group the Maytals in their all-day rehearsals, and found he wanted to follow that path and entertain people too. He first released a 'dub plate' single in 1989, then 4 EPs followed, and in 1997 he was featured on the successful Reggae Mood Swingz compilation. After 8 years touring with the Maytals he began to formulate his own sound and launched his solo career with the 2006 release, Crown of Fire followed by Reggae Got Soul in 2010.

The new album A Little Bit of Love... 'sets into motion the hopeful message so many are searching for and delivers this positive light with high tempo, conscious, roots Reggae, Ska, and R&B all together in one package. The music of Junior Toots makes you want to dance, move, be aware, think, and do well for others at the same time.'
