Delroy Lingo aka Delingo has been in the reggae business for over 30 years. The former road manager and assistant producer who then went on to start his own company and become an artist himself, Delroy oozes reggae authenticity. 'Your Grace' isn't dancehall, bashment or reggae with hip-hop influences, but pure gospel reggae that can be listened to if your nine or 90 years of age or from any culture. There are quite a few covers here such as "I Must Have The Saviour", a golden oldie sung in churches for many years. Likewise "You Raise Me Up", a cover of a song famously sung by Westlife! Elsewhere the album offers "I Almost Let Go", a story song that portrays a person who is at their wits end and is only kept by God's grace. If you're looking for old school gospel reggae, look no further.
