Jah Cure is set to make his debut in Japan next month and he intends to use the opportunity to capture the hearts of the Japanese, known worldwide as lovers of quality reggae music. The soulful reggae singer who is now being managed by Robert Livingston of the Scikron/Big Yard label, has signed on to do a series of shows in the Japanese cities of Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Fukuoka, Ibaraki, Okayama, and Yokohama between August 24 and September 8.

“I am grateful for the opportunity. It’s my first trip to Japan, a major market where reggae music is being played,” he said shortly after picking up his Japanese visa. “There are no big music sales going on worldwide right now so we have to try to get some shows, getting into the people’s hearts, minds and souls properly so we can live there and stay in there.”

Steady stream of hits

The entertainer born Siccature Alcock has had a steady stream of hits over the past few years that have helped build him a worldwide fanbase. Songs like his 2005 hit Longing ForWhat Will it TakeLove Is, and Call on Me have also won him a huge following of female fans who have been emotionally ensnared by his soulful lyrics. These are the songs he says, that will endear him to his Japanese audience. “Whatever I have is what they are looking for, reggae music with soul” he said confidently. “We put a lot of emotion to our thing. It’s my time to prove to Japan that ‘The Cure’ is here and I have a lot to say and some good things to deliver.”

Also among the songs that he believes will help him find success in Japan is his latest success That Girl a song that he said he wrote years ago but was waiting for the right time to release. “That song came into being before I met my wife (Kamila McDonald, a television host and beauty queen). I had always been saying I live in a nice house and I have a nice car and I was saying I have everything else except a woman to call my own,” he said. “And when I find her I am going to lock her down because she is going to be the only one to complete my life.”

He said he wrote the song and put it aside until he found the girl of his dreams. The song was released on iTunes in 2012 but the video was shot last year and released recently. “It’s a nice song and right now worldwide it’s creating waves,” he said.
