Singjay Panic is pleased with the attention he has been getting for his new single, Nah Go Change. The song has been released on the Track Factory Records label, and is available on all digital download and electronic platforms.

“The feedback has been great so far. People ah respond to it, everybody loves the energy, so we are stepping up promotion on it,” the artiste whose real name is Tom Jones, said.

The song marks a comeback for Panic, who made was introduced to the market as a rock-reggae-roots artiste as part of the band, Panic and the Rebel Emergency, over 14 years ago.

“Right now, I love being back in Jamaica, reconnecting with my family and friends, I have a lot of songs in me, a lot of things to say, so I want to the world to look out what Panic has to say,” he said.

He attended Shortwood Infant and Primary schools before completing his secondary education at Calabar High school, where he gained a reputation for his deejaying skills. Once he left school, he linked up with Nemesis sound system, where he would do mixes with his friends in a room in Norbrook, upper St Andrew.

He left Jamaica in 1999 and he became the resident engineer at the fledgling John Shop Records in Bronx, New York, where he got to work with a virtual who's who of talent. Buju Banton, Sean Paul, Vybz Kartel, Wayne Wonder and others have been on his roster. He was incarcerated for 13 years on a drug charge and is now back in Jamaica. He immediately hit the studios to record one of the hundreds of songs he had buzzing around in his head.

“Music lives within me so I had to get it out. I linked Teetimus, because we used to do work back in the day, and the first day we hold a vibe, we did 'Nah Go Change',” he said.

His second single She is a Rider was produced by Teetimus.
