Garnet Smith Jr., son and namesake of the legendary reggae artist Garnet Silk will proudly make it’s the debut on the stage of the renowned Reggae Sumfest 2014. The young artist will be performing his several hits such as the remake of his father’s single “Mama”, his hit singles “Promises”, “Condolences”, “Lady Divine” and more.
Garnet Junior slated performance will take place at the Digicel sponsored stage on night 2 of the famed event at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre, which will also feature Wiz Khalifa, Jason Derulo, Chronixx and Beenie Man, amongst others.
Garnet Jr whose latest video “Promises” is enjoying heavy rotation on various worldwide TV programs, will then be hitting the stage in Grenada at the Caricom festival.
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. Realizing that his prized pedigree brings enormous responsibility, Garnet Jr. is proving to be a dynamic and talented entertainer, which only compliments and strengthens his father’s legacy, through the younger Garnet’s relentless work ethic and boundless creativity. Indeed, this heir to the throne is paving his own way and earning his right, with each beat and lyric, to his very own crown.
