IT is not easy making the leap from songwriter to artiste. Just ask dancehall artiste G Rock. He wrote the hit Party Time on the Diwali riddim by Danny English and Egg Nog.


"It's really hard to make the jump because industry people don't often give credit and respect to those people who are behind the scenes who help to make the music a hit. But I am ready to take up the challenge of moving to the front, and being in front of the cameras," G Rock told the Jamaica Observer.


Signed to Rocka Fyah Production, G Rock is aiming to make a mark with his latest release Play the Music. The single was released in May.


"It is on a few mix tapes...the early buzz is encouraging and there are plans to do a music video," he said.


In addition to Party Time, G Rock wrote several songs for singjay Mr Easy before migrating to the US.


"I know that I can deliver more hits," he said.


Raised in Kingston, G Rock (given name Garth Lindo) started his solo career as Mr Pang.


He worked with producers including Jah Snowcone, Richie Stevens and Patrick Roberts.


His recordings include Wok Gyal, Jamaica My Land, and Mental Slavery.
