Who knew that Gramps had more than 25 years in the business and now add to that two solo albums recently released. Reggae Music Lives, his second solo album, is reportedly doing well. Morgan said sales were going very well and that "We learnt a lot from the first album and now we are at a point where we put out the second album and all of the distributors are like, 'Wow, this thing is running offa the charts'."
Hailing from a musical family, it was no surprise when Gramps Morgan's son, Jemere, also branched out into the music industry. Jemere represents the third generation of Morgans to have ventured into the music business and Gramps Morgan is excited about his son's career. "I'm excited about my son, Jemere. Jemere is a representation of the next generation of music. Stephen Marley also has a son doing music, there's a lot of other younger kids, but I've been working with Jemere for about four or five years now and I feel he's at a point where he is ready to be presented to the world. We're just having fun and watching him develop".
He describes Jemere as the 'Justin Beiber of the Caribbean' for a performance he did in St Maarten, Gramps Morgan believes children, teenagers and young adults would be able to relate to Jemere and his music. Operating under his own Dada Son record label, Gramps Morgan said he had much to learn before he took that route.
"You have to have a certain knowledge about the business. Even with me, after 25 years in the industry - I'm an industry kid, I started when I was seven years old, and when you start to see certain things inna di business and you can apply it, then you ready fi you own label. But before that, there's a lot to learn," Morgan said.
