Patcha Blacks returns to music
Long-time reggae recording artiste, Patcha Blacks, is making a comeback after an extended hiatus from the industry.
The Canada-based sinjay is currently enjoying much interest in his latest single 'Pretty Lady' that was produced by Blacka Cartel on the Questions and Answer rhythm and released on the Black Street Music Label.
"I've spent a lot of years working in the automotive industry, but music is my passion," he told THE WEEKEND STAR. "Therefore, I had to return to it, and now I'm ready to shine. I'm ready for my big break in the music biz."
In addition to the momentum of 'Pretty Lady', Patcha Blacks is also promoting another new single 'Live Your Life' from PB Records.
The Westmoreland-born singjay began his career in his hometown of Bastard Cedar Walk during the 1980s, deejaying on a sound system called Dovey Melody.
A few years later, he migrated to Canada but continued to pursue his ambitions as an entertainer performing with several top Canadian sound systems.
However, as time progressed, he was forced to take a break from the music business.
"From as early as I can remember I've always wanted to be an entertainer, but I had to put that dream on hold when I decided to have a family," he said.
However, his love for music drew him back to the industry and in 2007 he returned as a producer, working with the likes of JUNO Award nominee Tony Anthony and Spydablem.
In 2015 Patcha Blacks finally decided it was time to jumpstart his own career.
Since then he has recorded songs for several popular reggae and dancehall music labels including Smoke Shop Records, Black Street Music and PB Records.
