Musician -cum-singer Locksley has Jamaica's Noise Abatement Act in his crosshairs with the single Play My Music .

According to the singer, it is a call to the law enforcers to allow music to play without any unwarranted interruption. The artiste said he saw the need to do this track, after attempting to have a get-together with friends to celebrate his birthday. He was told to turn the music off being played from his home stereo system.

“That event dampened my mood and, I decided to pick up my guitar and just like that, the lyrics flowed to me verse after verse,” he said.

Play My Music is co-produced by Sherwayne Thompson and the singer on the Christine Gordon's production label Rebirth Records.

A music video accompanies the single.

Under the Noise Abatement Act as it relates to entertainment events, no person may host an event in a public space past midnight on Sundays through to Thursdays. However, on Fridays and Saturdays the events may go on until 2:00 am. Event promoters and organisers also have the option of applying for special permits which allow them to go beyond the specified times.

Locksley, given name Locksley Dixon, is a proficient guitarist and keyboardist. He has toured and worked with the likes of Jimmy Cliff, Judy Mowatt, Warrior King, Queen Ifrica, and Tony Rebel.

His hope is to move from the back of the stage to his own space to inspire and entertain audiences worldwide.
