'' I was fed on a musical diet of Gospel, Reggae, Dub-Poetry and Dance Hall DJ. I developed an interest in writing poetry, short stories, essays and songs. I was influenced by the concious and positive lyrics and music of Bob Marley,Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, Big Youth, Toots and the Maytals, Burning Spear, Culture. Mutabaruka, Bunny Wailer ,Third World and many other Jamaican reggae artists.
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 writing and performing from an early child hood, in Primary and High School. After High School I pursuit a career in Health and fitness and became a Professional Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer, But music was always there in me and I kept writing songs and poems, some of which have been published in various books , magazines and news papers.'

GEORGE REEVES : BASS GUITARIST
GEORGE REEVES :
George Reeves - Bass
Nicknamed "Revo" George Reeves was born about a mile away from Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, England, and has been playing bass for over 40 years.
Brought up on a healthy diet of Soul, Funk, and of course Reggae, genres of which the glorious sound of the bass is so prominent, it was no accident that the bass guitar became the weapon of his choice.
Over the years, Revo has always been an integral part as a band member and session player and has also experienced working with many top quality musicians within the industry.
With a loving passion for "The Low-End" Revo's style is very soulful and very funky.
"I figure, in my way of thinking, that the most important thing is that you must have a feel for music from inside your heart. You've got to feel it. I'm not too precious about being some kind of wizard-like technical player and I'm really not one for big bass solos either I suppose. There's so many fine bassists out there, way better than myself, who are extraordinarily exceptional soloists. Some of which I admire greatly, however, I'd far rather leave that to the others. I guess for me, it's all about "The Groove"...
