Singer-songwriter Jonathan Emile, born in Quebec of Jamaican origins, delves deep into his roots with his first reggae album, Spaces-In-Between, released on Montreal record label MindPeaceLove. Spaces-In-Between stands out as the first Quebec production to be distributed by the legendary distribution company founded by Bob Marley, Tuff Gong International. The album borrows many styles of Jamaican music, from acoustic and traditional Roots to Reggae-Pop as well as contemporary and urban Dancehall sounds, influenced by Dub and Hip-Hop.
