Jah Torch ready for big break
Reggae singer Jah Torch is confident that it won't be long before he becomes a household name on the local music scene.
The humble Rastafarian hails from a small community, Russels, in St Elizabeth. He began his recording career in the late 1990s.
His first recording was Sweet Angel, produced by Anthony Red Rose for his Raggedy Joe label.
The song received a fair amount of airplay but failed to bring Jah Torch the success he desired.
Undaunted, he continued to record for various producers over the years.
"I've been working with a lot of different producers over the years. I've been trying hard to get a break for a very long time, but I'm not giving up," he said.
Jah Torch has also performed at numerous stage shows, locally and overseas.
"I've performed on a lot shows in Jamaica and I've also performed at major events in Europe," he said.
Now under the management of Mervin Bernard of Yardie Ranks Production, the hard-working singer is determined to take his career all the way to the top of the musical ladder.
"I'm doing some very serious work with Yardie Ranks Production. So far, I've recorded five songs for the label. I'm confident that this company will help me to move forward with my career," said Jah Torch.
He is promoting a single, Give Me The Strength.
"My song is getting a lot of rotation and the video for it is also doing well," he said.
Jah Torch delivered a scorching performance at the weekly Talent Fridays event in Harry watch, Manchester.
