The emergence of Garnett Silk was as timely and triumphant as we've seen in the business of reggae music.
Upon first hearing Garnet Silk sing you can see this is somebody that wants you to feel what he's singing about. You can feel that this is someone who has a deep conviction for the messages in his music. Garnett achieved iconic status within only a matter of years.
His career took off between 1992 and 1994 when there was a conversion in the mood of the Dancehall. Silk sang cultural songs that spoke to the needs and desires of the African diaspora. Legendary producer Bobby digital recorded his debut album “It’s Growing.” That album featured deep cultural themes, spiritual songs, and romantic songs. It went on to become one of the best selling albums in Jamaica for 1992.
One of the big questions for reggae fans is “What if…?” What if Garnett was able to live on until today? We’re blessed with the musical legacy he left. Enjoy this mix, collect his music. Garnett Silk is definitely not forgotten. He is always remembered and always missed. Thank you for listening to Reggae Lover Podcast Episode # 90.
