Although I am very excited for New Years Eve I always get alittle nostalgic around these times. I want to wish all my readers a very happy & healthy 2011. While many of us are still digging out from the blizzard I wanted bring on a guest that would bring that Caribbean heat & sound. Allow me to introduce Buffalo Soldier. Buffalo has been putting out music for many years but he really grabbed my attention with his new single “Rejoice.” After hearing this song I had to have him on to talk about everything from how he got started, his positive messages, and his homeland of Trinidad & Tobago.
