I-Octane Feeds New York Media Ahead Of 'My Life' Tour {NEWS}

Reggae recording artiste I-Octane completed a media blitz last week in New York City, captivating the local media personalities and charming reggae fans with his charisma just days ahead of his impending My Life tour.

Last week's promotional tour commenced with a press conference and meet-and-greet. The press conference was hosted by Negril Village Restaurant, a New York City eatery, and was moderated by Pat McKay of Sirius Satellite Radio. Though a snow storm loomed over Manhattan, media houses and fans filled the venue where I-Octane posed for photographs and signed autographs. The singjay surprised those in attendance with an impromptu performance My Life, Lose A Friend, No Love Inna Them and serenaded McKay with Everytime You Touch Me. McKay was to interview I-Octane on Sirius Satellite Radio the following day.

However, a scheduled performance at Waah Gwaan Wednesdays at Temptations Nightclub in Brooklyn after the press conference had to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

RADIO

Other interviews included Caribbean Billboard Radio with host Chip Smith, Road Block Radio with Banky Hype, Irie Jam Radio with DJ Roy, ReggaeSpin with Keveon, Hot 97 Boston with VOG and DJ Kool, E2onair with Judith Kitson and Linkup Radio with DJ Kevin Crown.

On the weekend, I-Octane hosted Upscale Crowd's Fantasy Saturdays at Rebel in New York City.

There the singer again performed My Life and No Love Inna Dem, adding Lose A Friend for the partygoers.

I-Octane rounded out the weekend with interviews on 105.1FM with DJ Norie and 107.5 FM's Caribbean Fever with Dahved Levy on Sunday.

Additionally, the singer had a photo shoot with noted photographer Stephanie Foxx, who has photographed Third World Band, BB King, Johnny Cash, actor Michael Pitt, Reverend Run, Kimora Lee Simmons, and has shot for Elle Magazine, New York Times and clothing label, Channel, to name a few.

"I am very happy with the turnout of the media tour. New York treated me well. I look forward to returning to do shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I am thankful to all the radio personalities who interviewed me, it was truly a pleasure. To my team, thanks for now making My Life easy like 1-2-3."

Now back in Jamaica, I-Octane is prepping for his My Life tour which will kick off tomorrow with a performance in Dallas, Texas.
