Dub Nation Biography
Dub Nation releases it’s 4th album
Tuffer than Tuffist while returning to stages featuring the Motown voice of GC Cameron. Producer and bassist Frank “Fantom” Caruso, after years of managing and touring with musical legends The Temptations, The Four Tops and The Supremes, has transformed the Dub Nation sound with new lead vocalists GC Cameron, Luqman Frank, Kimiko Joy and Omega Brooks.
Caruso and Cameron bonded together during their days with The Temptations. Cameron’s international smash hit “It’s a Shame”, was Motown Records and The Spinners biggest song of 1970. Produced and written by Stevie Wonder, “It’s a Shame” showed off GC’s tremendous range and vocal power. Later he would go solo and in 1974 would release “It’s so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” featured on the soundtrack for the movie “Cooley High.”
Both songs appear on the album Rising Force for Change redone and performed in a reggae style. Cameron’s fifty years in the business has endured him to fans around the world, as he has become an icon for Motown and R&B music.
