Roots singer Jahdon pours his sorrow in ‘Pain’, a song recalling the recent death of his 17-month-old daughter. Released in mid October, the track is self-produced by his Broomie LLC/Look Ya Noww Entertainment companies and distributed by Tuff Gong International.
Citing privacy, Jahdon did not reveal his daughter’s name but said she was the only child for him and his wife, Francine.
He added that expressing his feelings in song is one way to shed the pain he and his wife have endured since their devastating loss.
“Navigating through this tragedy has been the most challenging chapter of our lives. I’ve faced personal losses before, but nothing could’ve prepared me for this. My experiences have instilled in me a renewed drive and passion,” said Jahdon.
The Rastafarian artist has quietly made a name for himself with a steady flow of songs, operating from his hometown of rural Canaan Heights in Clarendon parish.
Songs like ‘Broomie’ and ‘Congo Bongo’ have earned him a growing following in parts of the United States and Europe.
‘Pain’ is easily his most personal musical effort to date. “While creating ‘Pain’, I went through a profound emotional journey. Writing and voicing the song became an essential part of my healing. While the anguish remains, I’ve learned to channel it constructively and carry it in a way that honors the memory of my loved ones,” he said.
