Gonna Break My Promise") and Bob Marley
& The Wailers with the "Waiting In
Vain" riddim (on "I Surrender
All" and "What A Friend"),
Owen Uriah also throws in a few surprises

Is this new
release simply a tasteful collection of
cover tunes and versions? Hardly! "The
Same Yesterday, Today And Forever"
captures the Birmingham, UK-based artiste
Owen Uriah refreshing some vintage and
modern day classic riddims whilst adding his
own personal touch to each one.
reflective of his Christian faith and
perspective, this fourth album represents
the artiste's own expression combined with a
respectful nod to some of reggae's
stalwarts. Make no mistake- this is not
about Uriah getting sentimental on us! Each
cut from this new release is fresh and
relevant, offering a message appropriate for
heartical praises, introspection and
encouragement, "The Same Yesterday,
Today And Forever" finds Owen Uriah in
top form and as always- genuine.
