'' I was fed on a musical diet of Gospel, Reggae, Dub-Poetry and Dance Hall DJ Music from early childhood.
I developed an interest in writing poetry, short stories, essays and songs. I was influenced by the conscious and positive lyrics and music going on in Jamaica.
I have many things to say and started to express myself with poems , I realised that music is the best way to shout across continents and to be heard. I started performing while at Primary and High School in Jamaica .
After leaving high school I pursuit a career in Health and fitness and became a Professional Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer, But my music was always there in me and I kept writing songs and poems, some of which have been published in various books , magazines and newspapers.
It was only a matter of time before I had to return to my roots. "

GABRIELE APICELLA LEAD GUITARIST
“I see the world as a pulsing electron, a source of knowledge in practice. If fed with new prospects, intuitions, doubts, constructive criticisms, humour and love,it becomes bigger and bigger, dictating the new horizons and allowing us to depart for new seas.”
With my music I am looking to reach out to like-minded people who feel the urgency of moving onto a different level of connection between consciousness, society, nature, and history. The aim is to empower you to have the courage to accept that everything can be constructed in a better way.
If you’ve been there with me in 1975,you would have seen me, a hyperactive 3 year old boy with bushy hair who’s got so much energy he couldn’t stay longer than 3 minutes in one place. In the clinic of the small Italian town the family doctor advice my parents to feed my curiosities instead of suppressing them, so I was inducted to music.I listened intently to the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, blues, etc on record and soon my dad took me to a live concert. Little did I know that it is to be the day of my primordial epiphany. My eyes welled up with tears as the revelation comes to me that we are all part of the pulsing electron, interconnected in one. The music is the heartbeat, I am at home, inside a womb, connected with everything around and inside me. Everything is in a loop, a circular feedback.
