Recording artist, CK

Who is CK? ”…She’s soft but rough, smooth yet edgy”; sassy, soulful, fun, edgy yet vulnerable all reflecting the many moods and styles of her music.

Rooted in reggae and dancehall CK brings a RnB/Pop twist to the table as her influences range from Alaine, Lady Saw and Tifa to Janet Jackson, Rihanna and Monica.

Recently teaming up with the ‘Ward 21’ camp, CK has worked with producers like Kunley McCarthy and Andre ‘Suku’ Gray as well as Timothy “Quik Keyz” Kahwa, artiste and producer Karl Morrison of Starplayer Music Label and Anjublaxx of UIM Records.

In September 2011, she was the opening act at the live show ‘Smokin Jacket’ alongside premier female acts as Denyque, Natalie Storm, Timberlee, Devina Burn & Kim Nain.

“ My aim as an artiste is to give you a show every time you watch me whether through the choreography in my performance or through the passion I display while singing my songs. I truly want to entertain my audience, not only vocally or lyrically but with all of my talents…I want you to get lost with me in the music…” ~ CK

Standing Soldier Demarco

1

COLLIN ‘DEMARCO’ EDWARDS

As an artiste in the music industry, having a name that means ‘greatest lover’ leaves one to think that this person is a calm, soulful singer. But, with hit songs like Falling Soldiers and Duppy Know Who Fi Frighten, one would have to think twice when it comes to 25-year-old singjay and producer Collin ‘Demarco’ Edwards.

When TEENage asked him why that name, with a boyish smile on his face he replied: “Well it means greatest lover still, also mi middle name is Demar and the ‘Co’ stems from my first name.”

Only seven years in the music industry and Demarco has already made his mark locally and internationally. Doing collaborations with artistes like Foxy Brown (Dreams); Free, ex-presenter of BET’s 106 & Park; Elephant Man (Over World), Bounty Killer, Busy Signal, Lady Saw, Spice and Assassin, one could say he’s very versatile.

Demarco was not a model student, though he passed the Common Entrance Examinations for the school of his choice, Ardenne High. While at school he developed friendships with some ‘bad company’, he said, and that got him expelled. The same thing happened at Bridgeport High School.

His mother, who was abroad at the time, heard of her son’s reprehensible behaviour and promptly sent for him. At 16, Demarco migrated to the United States to live with his mother, unsure of what the future would hold for him there. Then along came music. His mother was, surprisingly, fully supportive of his efforts as a sinjay and producer.

Being a producer, he experiences the ups and downs of the music industry. Therefore, when he returned to Jamaica in December 2005, to finish what he started abroad, Demarco had no problem fitting into the Jamaican style of music management. Having signed to Starcut Records only good things are expected from this artiste.

TEENage later asked him what inspired him to write the song that got the most forward over the festive season, Falling Soldiers.

“A lot of my friends died so that was my main inspiration. Big up di people dem weh guaad mi,” said the singjay, who admires Lady Saw to the max.

TEENage then got ‘a little’ personal with the male singer and asked him about his personal life. With a smile that could calm any hurricane, he proudly speaks of his only child, “My daughter is the only one inna mi life”, he said, as the TEENage team looked on in anticipation. If only every man was like this about their child, one thought.

With the country’s high crime rate, Demarco feels that more conscious music will make a change. He hopes his song Betta Jamaica will have a positive effect on the crime rate.

When TEENage asked him if he was comfortable with present happenings in the music industry, he had this to say: “People start accepting the young artiste in the music business now, so it’s going positive.”

TEENage wants to thank Demarco for leaving a positive impact on dancehall music and wishes him all the best with his future plans.
