Richie Stephens & the Ska Nation Band
feat. Paola Pierri

Richie Stephens and the Ska Nation Band feat. Paola Pierri, has proudly taken the baton which continues the journey of a song bearing a rich and meaningful history. Inspired by the United States Supreme Court Case decision of Brown v. Board of Education that outlawed racial segregation of public schools, “Black And White” was written in 1954 by David I. Arkin and Earl Robinson. Interestingly, the most successful version to date, recorded by rock band Three Dog Night which reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1972, was directly influenced by the 1971 recording of Jamaican Band Greyhound, which was a top 10 hit in the UK.

Now, Richie Stephens and The Ska Nation Band feat. Paola Pierri, brings a fresh perspective to the world. Blending Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae and Dancehall, Richie Stephens and crew takes you through a journey delivering powerful vocal performances by Stephens and featured vocalist Paola Pierri. As if that was not enough, the song transitions into dancehall territory with DJ offerings from bandmates PAPA LEU and Rankin Lele.
Richie Stephens from Jamaica, The Ska Nation Band and Paola from Italy, symbolizes “black and white working together as one”, as Mr. Stephens puts it.
“Black and White”, produced and arranged by Handel Tucker, was recorded at Tuff Gong Studios and mixed at Mixing Lab Studio, both in Kingston Jamaica.
The single “Black And White”, taken from the album of the same name, will be released 21-11-2017.
