Jamaican-born reggae singer Black Ice is hoping to make an impact with Red a Red, which chronicles his spiritual transformation to Rastafari.

“The song was released last year but it just started to gain traction this year. It will be the lead single from my upcoming album which will be released in the fall of 2019,” said Black Ice, who resides in the United States.

Red a Red was released in November 2018 on Yard Groove Records.

The singer is also looking to break into the Africa and the Caribbean. With that in mind, he is banking on his We're Lovers, with songstress Sophia Brown.

“I have a new music video for the single We're Lovers which recently debuted on local and international television stations. It promises to be a trendsetting, lovers anthem for the summer,” said Black Ice.

Born Gary Palmer, he grew up in Battersea, St Ann. As a young boy, his family migrated to New Jersey in the United States. He then joined the US Navy for four years before attending Long Beach City College and then Long Beach State University where he studied engineering.

Black Ice did his first recording back in 1999, Enemies, featuring Rootsman. He hasn't looked back since.

His other songs include Deliver Me, Onward, Jah Live and Black Woman. His double album Sub Zero, featured singles such as a My Life, Jah Give I, and Hotta Fyah.
