Add reggae legends MACKA B and BLACK SLATE, and it's safe to say........

We are also feeling very excited ha!! :D

We are MORE than excited to announce our new EP 'EASY' will be released
07/07/2017!!!!!
EASY is a collection of 4 original tracks recorded at the wonderful MAYFIELD STUDIOS in Portsmouth,with the vocals recorded at ALPHA J STUDIOS in London, then mixed, mastered and released through our own Rainbow Ark Studio.

All four tracks are original compositions with music by Stuart ‘MightyZ’ Inglis and Christian Cowlin and with the beautiful inspiriting lyrics all written by EMiliYAH.
Our aim has always been and always will be, to spread love through music,
and these songs were written with a message of spiritual upliftment that we feel is especially poignant, relevant and more needed in these days of fear, hate, and confusion than ever before.
Only love can conquer fear and hate.
ONE LOVE through music.
Available on CD or digital download (details to follow)

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who attended the slightly moist bandstand today. It was a shame we couldn't hear the other great artists who had traveled from as far as Wales to play for us,
but it was, as always, a blessing to play for the people of Southsea.
The rain didn't stop your enjoyment and dancing, and only rain soaked equipment failure and the growing fear of death by electrocution stopped us.....eventually.
ONE LOVE


We have been back in the studio recording an album which we're very excited about!! Some more studio time booked so watch this space.
After a successful night at The Old Barn @ The Milton Arms in Portsmouth, we now have a bi-monthly residency there with some special guests lined up to join us, so keep an eye on the gigs section on this page or facebook for confirmation.
We had a brilliant night at The Spring Arts Centre last night.
Great venue, great crowd with beautiful people....good vibes all around.
Roll on 19th March and our next show in Bruton, Somerset.
ONE LOVE

Lots happening this year in All Star land.  A focus on writing, recording and releasing will mean less live work but a chance for you all to download and enjoy a whole stream of new tunes.  Watch out for releases on Bass1 records with our studio and label link up.  Also watch for more releases on our own Rainbow Ark label.  

Last weekend as well as a great gig at the Loft, the band met for a writing session and penned three new killer tunes.

Emiliyah joined forces with the MightyZ All Stars in 2012 and since then things have gone from strength to strength. Emiliyah's songs together with riddims from MightyZ and Christian Cowlin mean the band has a wealth of new and original Reggae music to offer.
Emiliyah, the band and its individual members have worked with a whole host of big Reggae names, both in the studio and in live shows. The list includes many legendary names, including The Wailers, Big Youth, Vivian Jones, Susan Cadogan and many more.

During 2012 the band went through changes to its line up and are ready for an exciting summer in 2013 with masses of gigs lined up around the country, including an appearance with the legendary Aba Shanti I Sound System.

I will be adding more blogs in attempt to tell the full story of how we got to this point -  but it is a long story ;) - so I will tell it little by little!
