Timing is everything. No one knows that more than singer Owen Knibbs who recorded his hit song Juggler in 1987, disillusioned by opportunist who wanted to ‘mix his music with a different kind of juggling’ he put that part of his life on hold, but now he is ready!
The singer will kick off a two-month long European tour after he lands in Paris on March 28. On April 1, Knibbs will enjoy a welcome party in France where he will get to meet and greet, music pundits and the French media.
After that it will be time to take care of the business of performances when he is expected to make stops in places such as Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
This has been organized by Black Catalog Music on the strength of his over two decades lone song which was reissued last year by Jamwax Records out of France.
“I am so humbled by all that’s happening. There is no doubt that the reissuing of the song has catapulted me back to the forefront in Europe. I am definitely looking forward to performing for my fans there,” said the humble singer about up upcoming stints.
Great things has been happening for Knibbs with the new movements. The Juggler has put him in demand to record it in a dub plate style across Europe, Asia and South America.
Knibbs has since recorded more singles with his latest Dem A Cheat becoming a favourite with the ladies.
Owen Knibbs was born in Mount Salem, St James, Knibbs grew up in Salt Spring, Montego Bay. He was introduced to music as a means of punishment as he said as an eight-year-old, his mother used to punish him by having him sit down and play music for her.
Fast-forward to today and Knibbs is all about using music as a teaching tool to get his positive message across.
