Silkkey D also known as Gary B.G. Thompson is a Jamaican recording artist who is blessed with a smooth voice and fluid vocal delivery that earned him his stage name. It was his parents' love of reggae music that got him listening to such musical greats as Delroy Wilson, The Heptones, Alton Ellis, Dennis Brown and Bob Marley. By 1989 Silkkey D was being featured on local stage shows. After 7 years of solid performance experience, he recorded his first single at Black Scorpio Recording Studio. His drive to become a well rounded artist led him to learn from every professional he worked with, including Mikey 'Bumpa' Melody, singer & owner of True Friends Studio. At True Friend's he learnt the art of recording, mixing and producing, skills which he has used to enrich his own musical craft.|
Silkkey D is currently signed with the Black Tiger Music Label. He recorded some singles ("Prettiest Girl" and "When It A Go Betta") for the label. His latest effort, "Wrapped Up In Your Arms" is an ultra smooth lovers tune, produced by seasoned producer Handel Tucker. His voice is perfectly suited for the song and the catchy melody grabs you instantly. His vocal delivery reminds us of the great Sanchez. Recorded at Mixing Lab with backing vocals by Brian Gold and Tabeta Cshae. The latter did a remarkable duet with the controversial artist Tommy Lee Sparta called "Spartan Angels".
