New single is a ‘winner’

A new single out for Good Friday is about instilling positivity, one of the artists behind the project said yesterday.

Lynwood Richardson said: “No matter what you're going through, no matter what circumstance you might be in right now — a winner is just who you are.

“Even winners get knocked down — it's just about getting right back up.”

Mr Richardson, aka “Brotha Richie”, was speaking about the new single I'm a Winner, released tomorrow.

The song is a collaboration between Mr Richardson and former Bermuda Idol winner Larrita Adderley.

Mr Richardson and Ms Adderley will make appearances at three events tomorrow: the Gilbert Lamb Day at St David's County Cricket Club, Harrington Workmen's Club event, in Devil's Hole, and the Loyal Hill Field Fun Day, in Devonshire.

The single, by GTyme Productionz, will also be released on social media and radio stations.It will also be included on an album set for release this summer.

Mr Richardson, the executive producer at GTyme Productionz, said that he and Ms Adderley had linked up in January.

The bulk of the credit for the song belongs to Ms Adderley.

Mr Richardson said: “She had a song idea and she had a beat in mind she brought to the studio.”

He said that from the first listen, he and colleague Derek “Sneek Success” Smith knew the track was a winner.

Mr Richardson explained: “As soon as we heard it, it was like ‘this is a banger'.”

Working with Ms Adderley was a positive experience.

Mr Richardson said: “To have an authentic singer, who can sing as strong and effortlessly as she can ... it's like a DJ's dream.

“She's making a declaration through her faith in Christ that she's a winner.”

Demo videos of the song sent out on social media have generated positive feedback.

Mr Richardson added: “It's just coming at a time where people feel like they're losing, and need to be reminded that they're winners.

“I think that's why the song is having the impact that it is.”

Anyone wishing to support the project can contact Mr Richardson on 703-4896 or brotharichie@gmail.com
