Garnet Smith Jr Ready To Take The Music Industry By Storm
From reggae royalty rises singing sensation Garnet Smith Jr , son and namesake of the legendary reggae artist Garnet Silk. Exposed to the world of music since his birth on April 3 in Mandeville, Jamaica, Garnet Jr. is a true musical artisan and today continues to walk the path of a musical legacy that is unparalleled and is, in fact, his birthright.
Garnet Jr. fatefully entered the rhythmic realm with his first professional recording in a studio at the tender age of 13, after receiving much encouragement from family and friends to sing for years. Family friend and producer Lloyd ‘Pecus’ Anderson recorded his first track, ‘Jah A Guide.’ The song was never officially released as a single but granted Garnet Jr. invaluable recording experience, along with his first taste of lyrical liberation.
Maturing over the years into a seasoned singer and songwriter, Garnet Jr. makes music that flows from his soul. His lyrics showcase intelligence, wit and charm, as he shares a relatable narrative of pursuing his dreams, along with his everyday life experiences. His musical styling is a fusion of hip-hop, R&B and reggae, and is greatly influenced by his father, as well as other reggae luminaries such as Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, Jah Cure and I-Wayne, and also the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson; they have all captured the ears of this auspicious artist, and thus, contribute to his genre-bending sound.
