ABOUT TOMMY G

Recording Artist- Tommy G
On February 7, 2016 we were blessed with the favourable
opportunity to have an one and one hyped “Skype” Interview with one of Jamaica’s
upcoming hit maker, Tommy G. Since 2015, our team at World Magazine Jamaica has been
trying to get hold of Tommy G but failed on three previous attempts.
Tommy G gave us an exclusive interview of his musical journey
and his development as an artist. The Artist whose real name is Timothy Gordon
said that his artist name “Tommy G” was both a “nick name”
and a combination of the initial of his sir name “Gordon/G”. Tommy G
who turned 24 on September 12, 2015 grew up in Jamaica in the community of 9
Miles Bull Bay, famously known for its large settlement of Rastafari.
 The artist career was not incidental but was either divine
or destiny, brought almost through his father’s genes, the famous trombonist,
the legendary Vincent Gordon. Tommy G’s style of writing and attitude towards the
music he credits to the dynamic culture of Jamaica. Although following his
father’s footsteps into the Music and Entertainment Industry, Tommy G said that
My father was not pleased to hear that I preferred Dancehall rather than
Reggae
“.
At the age of 13 years, Tommy G penned and recorded his
first song, titled “Blaze up the Chalice” featuring his childhood friend Andre
which was recorded by his neighbour, affectionately called “Shawn Uncle Bennett”. At the age
of 13 years, Tommy G had now recorded a song that create much buzz in the tight semi-urban 9 miles community.The Duo subsequently went under
and Tommy G persevered, held on to his desire and then entered another group,
this time a trio called “ULTIMATE”, which consisted of Prophet,
Kratos and Tommy G which recorded “Hola“, a song which was creatively
composed as a bilingual delivery, that group ultimately did not survive and he
then saw that the odds were against him breaking into the market, into his
life’s passion as an artist and then decided to pursue music alone which today is an ear popper and soul groove.
Since his journey as a soloist, Tommy G has recorded strings
of songs such as Dutty Heart, Fallen Soldiers, No Love and Fresh and Clean. He
is also featured on the upcoming mixed tape “Addi Riddim” produced by
Y.dae’s Entertainment Inc. Tommy G said the work is endless as he tries to
write a minimum of 4 songs per week which he attributed to his hunger for the
music and the need to be successful as inspired by the controversial and
Elitist’s enemy, Vibez Kartel. His latest song “Fresh and Clean” is
super club groovy, with a tempo just right to kick start a day out with your
coolest friends in the freshest gears and cleanest haircut trumping from a good
car sound system heading out to a club in Kingston to “Shell” the
place with a style so fresh and clean.
In concluding the interview, Tommy G made mentioned
of some of the ills in dancehall, stating that the lack of unity has over the
years injured dancehall’s potential on the global market. He also stated that
his song “Dutty Heart People” was a message song inspired by some of
the grudges in the industry. Tommy G wasted no time explaining that his input
in dancehall will be felt and implore other artists to write songs that are
credible, internationally competitive, worth listening for their intended purpose
and lastly to attack the music industry “head on” or conscious.
