Colin Levy takes the summer by storm

Colin Levy aka Iley Dread

Although it has been a minute since reggae singer, Colin Levy, has made music headlines, the seasoned entertainer has assured his fans that his passion for creating and delivering music remains unchanged.

In fact he will be working on major shows this summer featuring artistes such as R. Kelly, Freddie McGregor, The Whispers, Johnny Osbourne and Faith Evans.

Levy, who also uses the monikers Iley Dred and Chardavid, had taken a step away from performing, while concentrating on the production side of the business. But with 90 glorious days of summer upon us, this crooner is definitely ready to shine.

"My focus for the last two years or so has been the creative side of the music business, doing some stuff with my son, working on a project with Demolition Man and ironing out some important deals. However, I have also been doing a few shows here and there - mainly charity stuff - just to keep a presence," the multiple award winning singer, song-writer, producer, promoter and artiste manager revealed.

He added that it was quite a bit of irony that just when he decided to redirect his focus, that was the precise time that offers for shows started coming in from places such as Africa, a country he has always wanted to visit. That aside, however, it is with renewed energy that Iley Dred anticipates his July calendar.

"July will be a very busy month for me and I am vocally and physically ready for this journey," the soft-spoken lovers rock singer explained.

He is known for hits such as Lover's Holiday, A Friend For Life, World Crisis and Mamma among others.
