Kemar Thompson (Jr. Pinchers) has recently released Purple Door, his 4th single from his upcoming album True Story. Purple Door is an outlaw ballad about a man who observes his neighbour being mistreated by her boyfriend. When her life is threatened, he makes the decision to protect her and murders her lover, thus becoming an outlaw, on the run. Purple Door was produced by his manager and producer, Rachel Bernard, for Royal Concert Productions.
Kemar has received favourable response from his last single Unfaithful Lover, released earlier this year. Ron Muschette reported Unfaithful Lover as the most requested single on Irie FM so far for 2007. The video for that track, directed by Rachel Bernard, also did well on local entertainment cable stations Hype! TV & RE TV.
Known to many as Jr. Pinchers, the 24-year-old Kemar Thompson, son of veteran dancehall artiste Pinchers, spent his youth growing up around his father’s studio and was influenced greatly by the talent he in the Jamaican music business. Eventually, Kemar came into his own as an artist and began writing his own songs. He made his recording debut 10 years ago with the single Blaze Up Di Fire. He has recorded songs for popular producers such as Sheldon ‘Cali Bud’ Stewart, King Jammys, and Young Bloodz.
Plans are already underway for a video to be made for Purple Door. Kemar’s debut album, True Story, is set to be in the fall of this year and Kemar already has plans to tour the US and Europe to promote his album.
