I have been making music for a long time with no interest whatsoever in being signed by a MAJOR LABEL recording company or otherwise regardless of any amount of money they would be willing to offer; my reason is spiritual although I belong to no "organized" religion. Actually I was a Major Label “insider” as far as anyone could be "inside" their “diabolical society” for many years, purposely NOT attaching myself and cementing any solid ties with them although working musically with numerous artists that were “signed” or later got signed turning down several opportunities to become a major label marionette : please note , that there is no “rejection grudge” for my disdain of Major labels as some may presume reading this, if you personally knew me you wouldn’t 2nd guess this statement …It is my "subjective" belief that most all Commercial Music Industry Labels are managed by powerful Satanic forces with a global agenda to capture and destroy souls, causing social mayhem and confusion, hopelessness, casting darkness especially targeting the very young on behalf of the devil..
Although I am a US citizen and spend literally all my life living in the USA, ironically my break into the professional music scene began in Jamaica West Indies when I was approximately 12 years old and teamed up as a duo with a very talented friend; we gained instant popularity after performing at numerous school concerts throughout Kingston and was encouraged by several folks who heard us to go audition at one of the main studios in Jamaica: at that particular time we went to a major Jamaican music label owned by Duke Reid in West Kingston.. Duke was always present listening while his audition manager did the auditions; he was an extremely tough judge of talent turning away most artists he auditioned only a chosen few passed through his tightly guarded gun in waist studio doors: we were extremely happy that he gave us a passing grade to join his label to record a single for him but I have no idea what happened to that song, at the time Duke signed us he had a hot roster of established superstars so two kids regardless of their talent was not a priority for Duke's promotion budget. Nevertheless he allowed us to come to the studio any evening after school. There I had the golden opportunity to be present when many reggae superstars were voicing hit songs "masterfully singing with soulful emotion creating hits after hits in the UK and Jamaica and they were actually “singing” not making the “chatty chatty” noises commonly referred to as singing in Jamaica today: that early exposure to internationally known real Reggae superstar “singers” instilled in me an understanding that being good at music making is not a fly-by-night computer thing , although I am a DAW expert instructor –trainer occasionally, nevertheless it takes great devotion of learning the “rudiments of music” listening intently and absorbing from those musical greats who were before my time whatever information they have to pass on to me towards my future as an artist-producer.
A synopsis of my musical journey is that it has spanned a few decades although I am relatively a young man. When I was approximately 10 years old I could intuitively distinguish musical notes , scales and the key of any song (later after formally studying music I found out that was what I did by ear as a child) pitching my voice correctly among other voices singing harmony finding the 1st, 3rd 5th ,7th, and 9th as needed then quickly switching to lead vocals using a unique style of singing: having such “versatility” and flexible singing from bass to 2nd tenor in high falsetto vocal range created many musical friendships and acquaintances throughout my lifetime thus I was a member of numerous bands and vocal groups doing stage performances at large concerts and gigs at night clubs after school as a kid rarely being paid by promoters and club owners.. … I have met and worked with countless artists mainly in the USA that has made millions of dollars by commercializing their talents ; a la Chris Reid from Kid n’ Play fame and Arden Keyz Altino (hit producer for Justin Bieber, Alica Keys) just to name a couple out of a long list, paradoxically I have spent thousands of dollars out of my pocket from a 9-5 job in corporate America to build a large two room (one is a band room) sound proof professional studio, containing everything you can imagine a person would need to make pre-post production music. I clearly understand why most folks make music for monetary profit which makes great business sense but so far I have been doing do the complete opposite to that mindset.
When I migrated to New York where all my family members resided even before I was born and still a youngster I had no known close family in Jamaica anymore so I never returned to the Island. In reality I know very little about the current Jamaican culture which has changed vastly from the one I knew other than word of mouth information I get from Jamaicans I meet here in the USA.. I have traveled extensively throughout the USA acquiring “hands on” audio engineering-mixing-mastering experience from internationally renowned producers-audio engineers who were friends and mentors I met during my long musical journey.. In addition I did formal training in the “theory and techniques" of Mixing & Mastering. I proficiently play bass guitar, keyboard and percussion, and have written hundreds of songs...
Over the past 18 years I have produced several artists in the genre of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Reggae never submitting any of my work to a Major Label company, or do radio payola, nor hang out in demonic promotional circles so chances are you have never heard any of my “pre internet” productions on commercial media.. Going on three years now I have totally given up producing any artist and is currently focused on " me the artist” again : I always wanted go back to being an artist while producing other artists but such was never possible before now…Happy to know you if you have read this far, much thanks and respect!
