Jamaican singing sensation Sanchez has launched his new label. Sanmonik Recording is a new subsidiary of his Sanmonik Promotions Company, Inc.
Sanchez has recently returned from an extended stay in Jamaica to his South Florida residence, the hub for his many travels and tours. Having just completed whirlwind tours of Tortola, Turks & Caicos, Jamaica Independence Celebration shows in Florida and three cities in England, he received multiple awards and recognition for his positive influences internationally as a musical ambassador. He wowed the massive Labour Day Irie Jamboree crowd in Queens, New York, and headlined the first Reggae festival in Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing on September 18, 2005.
Sanchez, the consummate perfectionist, is currently adding the finishing touches to brand new recordings for himself, his son Kevin Jackson Jr. and shortly the finds from his recent self-funded Jamaica talent search.
Since 1995, Sanmonik Promotions Inc. team has handled his management, bookings, tours and schedules and now will add his distribution, E-commerce, marketing, and will exclusively handle and own all the intellectual and property rights to all his current works.
Sanchez has now relinquished his association with VP Records, having fullfilled all of his contractual agreements with the Caribbean music distributing giant. He had a long relationship with them–VP Records handles some 17 of his 29 albums.
Quoting Sanchez on his unprecedented move to produce and distribute his material he said, “Everyone needs to be in touch and in charge of their own destiny, as everyone and everything has a SHELF LIFE and when you are current, you cannot allow others to play around and allow your shelf life to expire and you and your family are left with nothing for your future and old age. You and your family, team members and colleagues, need to know and enjoy the fruits of your labour at a time when you are able to, and have a life that is not stressful, burdensome or cluttered with every day problems based on the decision of others when it comes to your property.”
He continued, “My mission is to spread love and joy for as long as I am able to, as that was the gift I recieved from the Father, I intend to continue to maximize that gift–spread the joy and giving thanks unto the Father from whom all my blessings continually flow. One must always try to alleviate all aggravation from their life as much as possible… I will be working at my own leisure which is more fulfilling, having control of my time and effort is extremely important to me as my mission continues, to make a difference as I have been throughout the years, now too to make a concerted effort to make that difference in others’ lives.”
How did this come about? “I had this awakening when I conducted my talent search in Jamaica while I as there earlier this year. To indeed make a difference and to give others a fair chance is very important to me.To nurture and encourage the youths to keep quality in their music and maintain clean positive lyrics. It is also very important to me as an artist to help pave the way for our talented youths and to set a positive example, one of fairness and integrity for them to enjoy a youth’s life as it happens only once.”
“Had I been given this opportunity early in my life it would be more beautiful and I would be fully cognizant of all the pitfalls, trickery, and dishonesty that abounds in this business. My effort now will give them just that–to be able to pass the baton on when that time comes, remembering that they too were given an opportunity to excel.”
“Honestly, it means more to me than even winning the lottery. That’s how I feel. I know that if I were given the chance that I am now envisioning for the upcoming artistes in this business I would not have learned the hard way. However, I will be open to offers or proposals in the future which will no doubt be given serious and honest analysis before any kind of consideration, commitment, or acceptance.”
