During the early s he was hailed as a rising talent, however his career was ended by his early death inwhile attempting to save his mother from her burning house. Even today still hailed as a reggae prodigy, Garnett is considered inspiring and a credit to reggae music. Smith was born in Manchester, Jamaica.
His musical career began at the age of twelve, when he performed under the name During the s he worked as a deejay on sound systems Ivenberg - Leben Heisst Sterben as Conquering Lion, Soul Remembrance, Pepper's Disco, Stereophonic, and Destiny Outernational where he Exodus 20:13 - Joseph Cotton - Black & White Ting met Tony Rebel.
He recorded his first track Sea Shell And Soft Stone - Pink Floyd - Pink Floyd (CD7)but it would be two years later before his first single, "Problem Everywhere" was released. An album of material from this period Journey was later released.
The pair began performing as a duo around the sound systems to much acclaim. The Garnett Silk Meets the Conquering Lion: A Dub Plate Selection album dates from about this time and features a clutch of exclusive recordings the DJ cut for the sound system from the mids through the end of the decade.
Rebel, a Rastarfari, eventually converted Smith to his religion with the help of dub poet Yasus Afari, a close friend of both the DJs. Inat the suggestion of veteran singer Derrick Morgan, Smith turned from deejaying to singing, with a recording Caught In Your Web - Powerworld - Human Parasite at Bunny Lee's studio with Rebel, including tracks recorded separately, as a duo, and with Anthony Selassie, and he began working under his real name.
It was the production duo who decided to change his name to Garnet Silk, in reference to his smooth voice. Only one of the tracks recorded during this period, "We Can Be Together," a duet with Chevelle Franklin, was actually released at the time, and discouraged by this, he returned to Manchester and threw himself into songwriting, often in partnership with an old friend, Anthony "Fire" Rochester.
