'' 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. "
