On July 10th, Jamaican-born singer Jah Cure will be releasing his seventh album entitled The Cure via his own Iyah Cure Productions. Born Siccature Alcock in Hanover, Jamaica, Jah Cure is a Jamaican reggae musician, who was raised in Kingston.
Jah Cure hasn’t enjoyed the typical path to success, having found fame while serving an eight-year prison sentence for a crime he was not justly prosecuted for. His first three albums were released during his time at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre in Kingston, Jamaica, which has a digital recording studio for inmates to use. Since being released in 2007, Jah Cure has continued working with his mentor Beres Hammond, and has become a married man.
According to Jah Cure, “My struggles made me who I am today. That’s why I sing with feelings, it comes from my heart ‘cause I feel the pain.”
With his incarceration now behind him, Jah Cure has been able to devote his full attention to this album. The Cure is entirely co-produced by Jah Cure, along with acclaimed reggae producers Christopher “Sketch” Carey, Clive Hunt, Llmar “Riff Raff” Brown, Justin “Jus Bus” Nation and Trevor “Baby G” Washington James. This album will also be his first under his own Iyah Cure Productions.
Having crossed into Hip-Hop, Latin, Pop and R&B genres with his last several releases, fans can expect to hear more variety on The Cure.
