Feeling a bit camera shy


Frankie Wilmot was raised in the rural area of Clarendon, Jamaica. His vocal nurturing resulted in him being persuaded to perform at local concerts when he was eight years old. By his teens, the singer joined Beenie Man on some of the DJ's early hits. Wilmot's success with Beenie Man resulted in a number of solo releases for producers including King Tubby ("My Sound"), Hyman Wright ("Won't Give Up"), Jimmy Cliff ("Cindy & Sensemilla") and Coxsone Dodd ("Stay With Me").

In 1991 he became the first reggae artist to perform in the Ukraine (former Soviet Union) at a charity concert in the City of Chernobyl. His breakthrough in Jamaica arrived with the release of "The Lion In Me", that reached the Star Top 40. When the single was released in Europe it topped a number of specialist charts throughout the continent.

With Bobby Digital, Wilmot recorded "Face The Storm", and demonstrated the influence of Bob Marley on the singer. Further hits followed including, a version of the "Stalag" rhythm "Give Me Sensi", the original "King Moses" (later recorded by Garnet Silk) and a cover version of Bobby Russell's "Little Green Apples" was produced by Frankie Wilmot/FAJ Music. Shocking Vibes, Exterminator and Culture Shock produced some of the tracks on his debut album Vision. The opening track is a storming version of Bob Marley's "Heathen" entitled "Wake Up And Live”, and was produced by Shocking Vibes’ Patrick Roberts.

Frankie was known to be a great influence on the ever-famous Garnet Silk who openly commented on Frankie’s guidance. He was also asked to lead the world renowned “Black Uhuru band. But, due to his commitments to his solo career he declined. Notable tracks include the Philip "Fatis" Burrell-produced "Sacrifice" and "Full Stop" by Barry O’Hare. As well as "Face The Storm" and the title track “Vision”, produced by Delroy Collins. In 1999 the album won the year's best reggae recording in Canada’s highest musical accolade, the Canadian Juno Awards.

Frankie Wilmot is highlighted as one of Jamaica’s most talented artistes and is about to launch his first album since winning the Juno award. The album "Many Changes", will be released on the Explorer Recording Label. This album signifies the new approach to Frankie’s life and a reflection on the many events that have changed the world in the past year. Due for release in March 2004, this is the album for today’s people and the young leaders of tomorrow.

With the message of “One Love” Frankie would like to thank all who have supported him over the years and to bless all the world’s youth with more musical blessings.
