Marvino blazes with 'Pain'
There's a talented new artiste on the rise called Marvino, who's burning up the local airwaves with a hot new single titled Pain.
The thought-provoking track, produced by Montego Bay-based producer Delroy Roberts for his Inspire label, was released in August. Since then, it has enjoyed heavy rotation on several popular local stations, including Irie FM.
"I'm very happy about what's happening with my career right now. I am truly grateful for all the support that my song is getting," said Marvino.
The St Thomas-born singjay, born Marvin Phillips, has been honing his craft since 2005. Over the years, he has recorded for various producers and performed at numerous events in and around the Montego Bay area.
It was during one of these performances that he caught the attention of Roberts, a veteran producer/artiste manager, in 2015.
Impressed with Marvino's talent, Roberts produced his first successful single, a somewhat autobiographical song titled 13, that was released in March 2015.
The song was premiered by legendary broadcaster Barry G on his popular afternoon show on Mello FM. It also received high rotation on some of the other popular radio stations.
Roberts is confident that it won't be long before Marvino becomes a household name in reggae and dancehall music.
"Marvino is a very talented artiste, and he's humble and dedicated. I believe that he's going to get his break very soon, and we're doing everything to make it happen," said Roberts.
