EMERGING reggae singer Nature Silk is set to take his place in the spotlight. He is banking on his latest single Cry.

Cry is produced by Nature Silk and released on the JKeez Records imprint on February 12.

“I'm pleased about the feedback I'm getting about this song. A lot of people are saying it's going to be a big hit,” he said.

Nature Silk launched his recording career in 2009, under the stage name Ijah Glory, with Fling It Inna Wall. He continued to record under the name that until April of 2017.

“I decided to change my name to Nature Silk last year. I performed at an event in Portmore called Curry Fest 2K17. When I came off stage the emcee took the mic said I should call myself Nature Silk because my performance reminded him of the great Garnett Silk, and the crowd went wild. So I decided to work with the name,” he told Jamaica Observer.

In 2015 he entered the JDC Big Break Competition and walked away with the top prize for Best Deejay.

“I've been working on my career for a while now. I've paid my dues, and now I'm ready to take my career all the way to the top. It's my time to shine now,” said Nature Silk.

The singer is booked to perform at several upcoming events, including UK JA One Link at Orette's Place in Carisbrook, St Elizabeth, on April 2.

Nature Silk (given name John Thomas) hails from the community of George's Valley in St Elizabeth. He is a past student of Balaclava High School.

His other songs are What Have I Done, Dear Mama and What Are They Fighting For, all done under the stage name Ijah Glory.
