Born Garth Woodside, August 7th in Nassau New Providence Bahamas and raised in Freeport. No one knew his birth would bring about such an underground music talent called Venomous Touch (formerly known as Spida I’yah Venomous) because his style is so unique that is stings you like that of a spider. When you hear his music you know that you’ve been bitten and touched by his sound and his lyrical style. Influenced at an early age by artist such as Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Shabba Ranks, Born Jamericans and Spragga Benz to name a few. Venomous Touch is not only a performer but a songwriter as well and he fuses the sounds and style of Reggae/Soca/Dancehall/Hip Hop and Rock and with that uniqueness he doesn’t disappoint his audience. He has written with artists, Styleon Da Empress, No Phear, JV, Heartfelt and many more.
Venomous Touch prides himself on not just being a Reggae/Dancehall artist but a musician, a man of music doing voice animations in many of his songs and has excellent baking skills as well to impress in the kitchen. Music is his life and he expresses whatever he is feeling in his heart at that moment and finds the sound that will compliment what he feels. A universal sound is what he is all about to bring music to the world.
