It is not often that a man named Jac Saavige releases a gospel song, but this young rookie deejay is no ordinary, garden variety artiste. He has the ability to take any topic and twist it into a song with his incredible wordplay skills. Just listen to the deejay's latest single, the gospel-tinged 'Lord Jesus Save Me' which is getting mad props in dancehalls and on FM radio and you will understand.
"The 'Lord Jesus Save Me' has been incredibly well, Gary G pull it five times Monday night it have a gospel reggae feel that the old , the young, the Christians, the worldlians, everybody love it. I did an interview on Nationwide and people call in a praise me for the delivery and content of the song , and when I did RJR the following week, I got more praise, only thing people were saying that the Saavige name is not appropriate with gospel, but it doesn't matter, all that matters is the message," he said. Born David Salmon, he hails from the second city Montego Bay in the parish of St. James, Jamaica. He was born to a hard working housewife in the small community of Flankers where he spent most of his childhood. At a tender age he relocated with his father to the cool hills of Manchester where he resided in the community of Knockpatrick. He fell in love with music and began to write and record singles until he came to the attention of his current road manager, Julian 'Chakka Dawg' Toyser, and Errol 'Bossie' Smith, the chief executive officer of Celebrity Records, who immediately inked him to a recording deal. Since he has been signed to Celebrity Records, the artiste has been locked away in the studio cranking out new singles. One of those singles is the booty-bouncing jeep rocker 'Summer Bell', on the Summer Bell riddim. The single is being played on IRIE, ZIP, LINKS and HITZ FM. "I plan to do a video for Summer Bell soon and crank up the promotion right in time for this year's Summer parties," he said. Other singles to look out for are 'Mama', 'Ungrateful' and the belly-hugging 'Jerk Chicken Neck'. "We are getting great feedback on the Jerk Chicken Neck, ah it a run Mandeville right now. The slang, the dance and the song ah lock down Mandeville town, every hype crew know the Jerk Chicken Neck song, dem a do the dance, dem a endorse it. Is like a gimmick but it tek on a life of its own down inna Mandeville," Saavige said. He performed on GT Taylor Xtravaganza last year, and he is booked to appear on Gary G's Kite Fest next month. He has a show in Newmarket this Friday night, March 8th on DJ Ahzid's Birthday Bas, and he has solidified a decent underground following in central Jamaica. His management and bookings is handled by Celebrity Records and he can be contacted at U.S.A 1 347-530-8297 / 1 347- 255- 8110 / Ja> 1 876- 577 1583.

Jac Saavige is aware that there is another artiste in the business called Savage who hails from Grants Pen, but he is not worried at all by that revelation. "Respect to him, he is a good artiste but ah mi ah the realest Saavige, my name spell different, my flow different, ah me the people dem ah go memba," he said.
