After months of keeping Jayd Ink in heavy-rotation (“Sweet Conversation”, “The Real Thing”, “Sound Like This”, “401 West”, “Galaxy”, etc…) I’m really looking forward to checking out her live show. Should be another dope night courtesy of Tika Simone and the whole Known [UN]Known family. Shouts to the city.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in Toronto, R&B singer/songwriter Jayd Ink first came to prominence in late 2013, when she released three singles (Sweet Conversation; The Real Thing; If I Was) which caught the attention of various A&R’s and record labels throughout North America.
Prior to her music career, Ink did poetry but choose to transition to singing and songwriting because of her love of music and fervour for new challenges. Her poetry background allows her to effortlessly move through a myriad of musical genres, enabling her work to be a transformative space of inventive thinking and creativity.
2015 has been a monumental year that saw her sharing her sound all over the world, unwaveringly amassing acclaim from industry heavy hitters like Mannie Fresh and Charles Pettaway, along with incredibly talented artists and producers from BOB’s No Genre Label, for her alluring stage presence; compelling voice and raw depth- Ink’s prowess is undeniable.
‘Sweet Conversation’, the enchanting single that assisted in Jayd’s rise, was featured in a short film titled ‘Chameleon’ which premiered at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in the Summer of 2015. Jayd’s latest project – Invitation Only, a sultry, smooth and intimate five track EP was released early September of this year with two songs ‘Galaxy’ and ‘At.Lanta’ that had an exclusive release with the UK group The Good Vibe. With audiences awaiting visuals for Invitation Only, anticipation has reached maximum levels, as it is clear that there is no limit to what Jayd Ink can do.
