After being absent from the Canadian entertainment for a few years, singer Colin Levy a.k.a. Iley Dread, is back and is fast reclaiming the fans that he has built up over the years by giving some sterling performances both here in Toronto, Canada and across the world.
His latest crowd-pleasing performance was at the Government Entertainment Complex in downtown Toronto on August 13, where he thrilled the more than 400 audiences in attendance. Backed by his own band the Kings of Kings band supported by his background vocalist, he performed several of the crowd favourites including "Picture on The Wall", and "Lovers Holiday".
But just as the audience was beginning to warm up to him and was really enjoying his performance, through no fault his own, his performance was cut short to make way for I-Octane who was the headline act.
The premature ending of his performance, which angered his fans, was no fault of his own, because the concert that was schedule to start at 11:00 pm, did not get underway until after 2:00 am, however his act was well received.
Prior to his appearance at the Government Entertainment Complex, Colin has been having a very busy schedule which started in the city of Ajax in June, this was followed by performances on the Jamaica Day Celebration, shows in Niagara Falls and also in Montreal where he performed at the Montreal International Reggae Festival, and event that is schedule to attract thousands of reggae lovers from near and far.
The future certainly seems bright for this singer/ songwriter who has launched the career of several up and coming singers in the city. A scheduled tour to Europe and South Africa in the not too distant future will be just the tonic needed to enhance his career and propel him on the world stage.
