RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW JANLACK, THE CENTRAL KING
Hi Janlack, hows things? What made you decide that music is a thing for you?
Music is a universal language. Through music I can express myself in ways that most people can understand and relate to.
Introduce yourself and your musical history.
Greetings everyone I am Janlack the Central King and I Hail from Linstead St. Catherine Jamaica. Music has always been a major part of my life my siblings and I have been creating music since we were young children. I have always dreamed of being that artist that has a positive influence on everyone who takes the time out to listen to my music.
What was your life like before you found music?
The day music found me was the same day that I found freedom.
What was the first song you heard that steered you down the musical path?
The first song that I can remember hearing that transformed my thoughts and steered me down the musical path was ‘The Book of Life” by I -Wayne.
Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?
I am a firmly planted seed with all the nutrients necessary to grow into a massive tree that will be seen from the four corners of the music industry.
What is the biggest lesson that you have learned from someone else in the industry?
I’ve learned that nothing comes before its time, however, one must have the ability to recognize when it is their time.
Tell us two truths and one lie about yourself.
I am a very generous person, and I am at my happiest when I can put a smile on someone’s face. I have never had any challenges in my life, everything has always come easy for me. One of my reasons for exercising my musical talents is to build a legacy for my children.
If you could wish for one thing that would aid your career, what would it be?
My wish is to gain 1,000 new fans every day.
Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture?
No, I don’t worry about people taking things the wrong way or canceling culture because I do my best to deliver myself consciously and considerably.
Do you sign up for any conspiracy theory if not why?
No, I do not because I believe that everyone has the right to express themselves and what might be considered a conspiracy theory to some may be true and what is said to be true may be the conspiracy theory. Therefore, I prefer to keep my mind open and my opinions neutral.
What was your worst experience on stage?
One time at a stage show I was about to perform but the DJ’s equipment could not read my beats, so I had to use other tracks that I did not rehearse with.
Tell us something about yourself that you think people would be surprised about.
When people get to know me, they are always surprised at how multi-talented I am.
What makes you stand out as an artist?
My Rastafarian heritage along with the foundation that I was raised on makes me stand out as an artist.
I hear you have a new song, what can you tell us about it?
My new song called “All I See” deals with the reality of today. This song is a harsh depiction of the current times, there are too many murders, suicides, and crashes…just madness coming from every direction.
What was the recording process like?
This recording process required a lot of time and energy. I spent many hours in the studio working tirelessly making sure my messages were delivered the way that I intended.
What was the biggest struggle while writing this new tune?
The biggest struggle I encountered while writing this song was the fact that it was motivated by the passing of my younger cousin.
Would you change anything now that it’s finished?
I wish that I could change the reason why the song was created, however, I do not wish to change the song.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
The world should keep its eyes and ears open because Janlack the Central King is ready to reign. My team and I have so many new projects in the pipeline so stay tuned.
