Everyone is gonna love this, Best of GARNETT SILK tribute mix by Mad Shak CHRONIC SOUND. Born Garnett Daymon Smith on April 2, 1966, in Manchester, Jamaica; died on December 9, 1994, in Mandeville, Jamaica; married with three children at the time of his death.
Garnett Silk was a pivotal figure in reggae music’s trend away from the dancehall music of the 1980s toward more culturally oriented reggae music in the 1990s. First making a name for himself as a teenage deejay and “toaster” in clubs around Jamaica, Silk recorded his first singles in the mid-1980s under the name Little Bimbo. By the end of the decade, he had become Garnett Silk and adopted a new style that focused on his tenor vocals and consciousness-raising lyrics. His first album, It’s Growing, became the best-selling title in Jamaica upon its release in 1992.
