Gramps makes solo debut at Jamaica Jazz Festival

Gramps Morgan, part of the group Morgan Heritage, has now stepped out on his solo journey, and is scheduled to make his local debut on Thursday night at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Montego Bay.
“It’s going to be a ‘moment in time’ as Beres would say,” an obviously excited Gramps said. “It’s historical … I’m really looking forward to it.”
Gramps, who performed with Morgan Heritage at Rebel Salute on Saturday, says he has absolutely no qualms about jumping on stage by himself. The keyboard player-cum-vocalist in the group, Gramps, whose real name is Roy, says his first ever solo performance took place last November in London. “It was a show with me and Marcia Griffiths and I was advertised as a solo act, so people came to the show knowing that it would be just me,” he explained.
However, according to Gramps, many persons, after seeing him perform, were surprised that he could actually sing. “But it has been all good so far … and the person I am happiest for is my father because he had predicted this day. He told us years ago that one day we would all take separate roads and show fans the different dimensions so they would know exactly what makes up the nucleus of Morgan Heritage,” he said.
The elder Morgan is indeed a happy man. “He just loves it when we do our solo projects and send him the songs to listen to. As soon as he gets one from me, he wants to know when he’s getting others,” Gramps said with a laugh.
Gramps has so far released a number of singles, Watch The Tears and Hour Of Prayer, a combination with Buju Banton. He is looking forward to performing these on Thursday night at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival.
