Caribbean Pop Singer Quick Dawg Releases Single 'New Gyal'
The singer and songwriter of modern reggae and Caribbean pop known as Quick Dawg has released his latest single, “New Gyal.” The track has been proudly published on the Money Super Long independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Cool, mellow, stylish and full of groove, “New Gyal” is a surprise indie radio favorite to round out 2017.
Bahamas native Quick Dawg cites as main artistic influences legends such as Lil Wayne, Tupac Shakur, Vybz Kartel, and Bob Marley. As might be surmised, his own style blends key elements of the roots music tradition with contemporary pop qualities for a sound that is both steeped in Caribbean culture and ripe for play on pop radio stations and nightclubs everywhere.
Quick Dawg (born Ramon Jason Thompson) was born and raised in the Bahamas and moved to the United Sates at age 17 with dreams of a better life for him and his family. His 16-track project, “Parental Advisory Advised,” appeared in 2011. It featured singles such as “Smoking Herbs” and “A Sample” which helped showcase his ability to, as his current bio puts it, “provide projects full of vibes and new style.” In 2012 Quick Dawg released his mixtape “Still Making Moves” featuring popular songs like “Yeaa Ahhh / Money Super Long.”
Quick Dawg wrote and recorded his first original music at age 12.
“I loved the feeling of creating music,” he writes. “I loved listening to songs on the radio. I realized I learned songs very fast and would be able to pick songs that a lot of people also liked.”
This talent carried Quick Dawg through a succession of popular releases including “No Heart” and “I Love Her” (2013), “Love How” (2014), “Show Me” (2015), “Roll Dat” (2016), and “In There” (2017). Many of these received international acclaim and continue to garner praise years after their publication.
Asked to describe the main themes of his “New Gyal” single, Quick Dawg writes simply: “Love, self expression, self respect, that one girl that seems like a new everyday, consent, freedom, unity, versatility, enjoy life.”
Quick Dawg's much-anticipated album release, “International Transactions” is expected to drop in 2018.
“New Gyal” by Quick Dawg is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music retailers now.
