JordanCoverRecording artist UnLymited has joined a number of reggae and dancehall voices currently speaking out against guns and gun violence in Jamaica. His latest song and video, No Badda With The Gun Thing, sends a powerful message to the would be gun slingers, warning them not to go that route. Needless to say that this record is very timely as once again there is an uptick in gun related killings across the island.

ABOUT UNLYMITED
Jordan Morris, also known as UnLymited, was born in Saint Catherine, Jamaica. He later moved, with his mother, to the Tower Hill community in Kingston, where they lived for a few years. They again moved, and eventually settled in May Pen, Clarendon, where UnLymited pretty much spent most, if not all of his teenage years.

UnLymited discovered his talent right around fifth grade when he was in Primary school. His 5th grade teacher gave out a class poem and asked students to put their own spin on the poem. UnLymited did a rap version of the poem and the entire class went wild. From that point on he knew he had the gift of music and he has been performing and following his dream ever since. UnLymited has been influenced by all genre of music and by many artists, both past and present.

Currently UnLyminited is working with MJHmusik on a few singles, with an upcoming album to follow. After years of preparation, UnLymited has emerged as a formidable singer / songwriter in the music industry. With his determination and talent there is no doubt UnLymited will be a major force going forward as he continues on his musical journey.

KERRY STARR Biography (@kerrystarr)

kerryKerry-Ann Morgan, publicly known as Kerry Starr, is a singer / songwriter specializing in the reggae, dancehall and Caribbean pop musical genres. As a native of Jamaica, Kerry grew up in the Kingston area, living with individual parents at different times in her life.

Her love for the creative arts started in school, specifically Vauxhall High, where she actively participated in music, dancing, acting, cheerleading and was a member on the debate team. Kerry remembers getting a lot of support from her father, who she says is also the one who inspired her to pursue a career in music. Unfortunately, her mother was not behind her initially, but that would eventually change as Kerry would not stop writing and singing.

Kerry Starr did her first song while in the fifth form. She had to endure and overcome a lot as a solo female artist, working in what many consider to be a male dominated industry. One of her biggest challenges was, and to some extent, continues to be, not being taken seriously.

Despite the difficulties she has had to endure, Kerry has managed to record and release some very amazing tracks over the years. In 2007 she recorded Believe It,” a song that she is currently pushing. It was produced by the legendary production team, Sly and Robbie. In 2014 she did My Grade,” that was produced by Biggy from the popular duo Razz and Biggy. In 2016 and 2017 she collaborated with Legendz Production on three songs: “Cupid,” “Core” and “Everything.”

Kerry Starr is truly one of Jamaica’s best kept secret; something she is determine to change in short order. With a new promo team behind her, she is now working extremely hard to share her music with the world.
