2000GREAT for LENN HAMMOND!

Toronto to the world, Lenn Hammond is in the news
again! This time it's his recent nomination from the
Canadian Reggae Music Awards (C.R.M.A.) that has radio
jocks in the Netherlands going gaga for the sultry
crooner. Lenn spoke candidly about the nomination with
'The Good Morning Show' on Razo Radio in lower
Amsterdam during the week and the interview repeated
over the weekend.

Nominated for 'Top Male Reggae Singer', Hammond has
already won this award twice. Although Lenn Hammond is
currently working in Jamaica, the C.R.M.A. recognizes
that the artist still keeps close ties to Canada. As
explained by the awards founder and C.E.O. Winston
Hewitt, "the Canadian Reggae Music Awards recognizes
Canadian artists who are also making strides outside
of Canada. Fans at home and abroad can now vote online
at www.canadianreggaemusicawards.com".

Hammond's single "Not Far From Sunshine" remained in
the SuperJam's Top 10 on CHOICE FM in the UK for
months and the video was supported in Europe, Asia,
North America and the Caribbean, including Jamaica's
Hit List Top 20 Countdown. Meanwhile his most recent
single, "HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU" on Jah
Birth's Three Wise Mice Riddim received a 5 star
review on Reggae-Vibes.com in the Netherlands and is
in the process of being released world-wide.

2008(great) is off to a great start for Lenn!

Early in February, Hammond was well received at Black
My Story, the inaugural concert held in St. Andrew,
Jamaica as part of the country's Reggae Month
celebrations. The Jamaica Observer reported, "Lenn
Hammond gave an entertaining performance." While
Torch Promotions claimed, "Lenn Hammond rocked the
crowd, women were screaming, his performance was
breathtaking! One of the most memorable for the
night." Lenn is slated to perform at the upcoming
"Reggae In The Valley" and "British Roll Out 2K8".

Listen for Lenn's upcoming releases: Battlefield ft.
Mark Wonder; IRON IN THE FIRE with Anthony Red Rose &
Mitch and Too Bad ft. Ce'Cile.
