New Message from George Nooks

‘Music In de Message’, George Nooks’ first album in six years, was released on May 3 by Tad’s International Record. It has 15 songs, 13 of which are originals, and showcases the singer’s vocal and writing skills.

The veteran artist is pleased with his latest collection of songs which he describes as “well-written and produced”. It hears him returning to his dancehall roots on songs like ‘Leave Her Alone’, a rocking collaboration with Josey Wales.  “Well, this album is definitely different because 90 percent of it is original. The other exciting thing about it is we did this album over 20-odd years ago,” Nooks disclosed.

Other songs on ‘Music in de Message’ are ‘Gangster from Jam Dung’, ‘Rude Bwoy’ and ‘Serious Times’. But Nooks also has time for the lovers on ‘So Nice to Be with You’, a song originally done by The Monkees, but made famous in Jamaica by Boris Gardiner and Dennis Brown.

‘Music In de Message’ is Nooks’ first album since ‘Through It All’, a solid collection of inspirational songs released in 2018 by Tad’s International Record.

George Nooks has been making songs for over 45 years, starting with songs like ‘Tribal War’ and ‘Left with A Broken Heart’ for producer Joe Gibbs. As deejay Prince Mohamed, he provided the toast to hit singles by Dennis Brown (‘How Could I Leave/Bubbling Love’) and Culture (‘Zion Gate/Fortyleg Dread’).
