Nervz on UK promotional gig

DANCEHALL artiste Nervz is excited about his experiences on his first promotional tour of the United Kingdom. He performed at his first show dubbed Dancehall Algorithm in Birmingham on December 2.

On the weekend, he had shows in Bradford on December 3 and in North London on December 4.

"The vibes was really great. The fans came out and they reacted well to my songs, especially Banga Tone and Polo For Days. Mi love the British vibes — they know how to party and have a good time," said the artiste whose real name is Michael Atkinson.

He will also be doing a press run at ethnic radio outlets and newspapers in the UK.

Over the past year Nervz has built up a decent underground following for his popular songs such as Brawling, Chappa Fi True, Polo for Days and Banga Tone. He has consistently released music on various digital platforms through a series of popular mixtapes such as Street College, Banga Tone, and Brawling.

"The streets are really vibing to my music and the songs are getting traction on the international stage so I am anticipating major progress in 2023," he expressed.

Born in Kingston, Nervz grew up in St Catherine and ever since his days at Willowdene High in St Catherine he has always been an avid music lover.

"My music appeals to the soul," he stated. "I put my heart and soul in my work and I do feel like what I create is a masterpiece that people will love and enjoy. I enjoy writing — my emotions and feeling help to inspire my work. I enjoy making good music. I see my mission as healing and motivating souls."
