TOM LAING IS RIDING ON THE SUCCESS OF HIS HIT “KING’S HIGHWAY”!

BY KEVIN JACKSON—-

 Tom Laing—

SINGER Tom Laing is currently holding down the number eight spot on the South Florida Reggae chart with King’s Highway . It is also number two on the Foundation Radio Network (New York) reggae chart.

King’s Highway is taken from Laing’s latest EP Love is Ok.

But while Laing is celebrating his recent chart success, he has remained true to his Trench Town roots. The New York-based artiste is a firm believer in the power of roots reggae music.

Although most of his earlier recordings were done on computerised rhythms over the past five years he has opted to record on live rhythms only; a decision which has paid rich dividends.

“I’m a Trench Town youth, and I look up to all the great singers and musicians from Trench Town. I want to carry on this rich tradition of making good authentic reggae music. No computer software can give you the real sound that a musician playing an instrument can; it just doesn’t have that live feel,” said Laing.

Since 2013 Tom Laing has topped reggae charts worldwide with songs such as Belly of The Beast featuring Capleton, Finally Free and his remake of the Gregory Isaacs classic, Front Door.

“I began recording on live rhythms in 2013, and since then my career has grown tremendously,” said Laing.
