Job Hill Records reggae singer Influential knows what it means to suffer. He knows what it means to suffer for your art, having lost his wife and young family through a heart-wrenching divorce, and he suffered numerous other reverses and challenges because of his devotion to music.

When he landed his first hit song, Road Hog, he lost his salaried job with a Christian music organisation he had been working with when they said he "wasn't doing gospel, yu doing reggae music, and this rasta thing is not going to work".
"Years later, my wife divorce me because of reggae music, mi see divorce papers come to me and I have to sign them because mi love her but I have to let her go, so she can live her life. I miss my little young family, but ah reggae music mi say, ah mi greatest passion, mi bleed fi it, mi struggle for it, and mi no really mek no money yet, but mi a spread the message still," he said.
He taps into that well-spring of pain for his hot new single Suffer. The track was produced by Oneil “Clarkie” Clarke and Duke “Nicko” Miller for Hitmatic Records/ Silly Walks Production. The video for the project has been bankrolled by Job Hill Records who have inked a management deal with Influential. :BR> "Right now, ah Job Hill Records ah mek the ting click. The video will be released later this week, and mi just have to give thanks to Mama Elise and DJ Wayne who ah play the Suffer song," he said.
