Release: Dwight Anthony Davis - Hurry (Single)

Dwight Anthony Davis - Hurry 

Thoroughbredmusic is delighted to welcome the Jamaican born singer/songwriter

Dwight Anthony Davis to the stable, and announce the new single

‘Hurry’, the title track from the forthcoming album.

We are delighted to welcome Jamaican born folk/reggae/rock singer-songwriter Dwight Anthony Davis to the Thoroughbred Music Stable, and to announce the release of Dwight’s new single ‘Hurry’ impacting now! This is the first song from the forthcoming album of the same name.

 Inspiration behind Hurry:

Hurry was born out of a period when Dwight faced many adversities in his life. He woke up one morning, following a session of late-night guitar practice, with a beautiful melody in his head. The lyrics were coined to reflect the redemption he yearned for at the time and the frustration of the 9 to 5 bondage.

The album “Hurry” is a collection of cracking songs now updated and rejuvenated under the leadership of new global record label Thoroughbred Music for a brand-new release, featuring a new reggae flock fusion of the first single Hurry, along with new songs.


About:

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Dwight Anthony Davis spent his early years in rural Kellits, Clarendon. Beyond the chirping crickets, the only night sounds flowed from his grandfather’s radio - international stars like the Bee Gees, Stevie Wonder, Cat Stevens, and Frampton, and local Jamaican artistes including Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, John Holt, Peter Tosh, and Bob Andy. These early years of late-night radio spurred Dwight’s love of music and informed his later development into a songwriter and musician.

On Dwight’s return to Kingston in 1978, he was introduced to the guitar by his friend Moses Black McGee, a piano player whose brother’s guitar was gathering dust. Together they learned to play simple songs and arrangements, eventually transitioning to writing their own material. With friends and fellow songwriters Chris and Sherlock, they formed “The Sardonyx” in 1983. Among their original songs were “Patience”, “Stand In Love”, “Always Waiting” and “Music Galore”. “Music Galore” showcased the talents of “The Riddim Twins, Sly and Robbie” on drums and bass.

The Jamaican music scene at the time was saturated with dance hall music, and while there was some interest, “The Sardonyx” did not receive tangible support among local producers and radio stations. However, their love of music kept them playing and writing songs. In addition to pursuing a music career, Dwight studied at Mico Teachers College and taught high school art in Jamaica for six years.

Dwight migrated to the United States in 1991 to study commercial illustration at Columbia College Chicago. Dwight still teaches in Chicago today but has never lost touch with Moses or with his musical roots. This album is a musical smorgasbord.
