age of eleven with the gift of his first portable Walkman recorder from his
mom. This saw the beginning of a very bright music career.

States, where he was introduced to hip hop techniques which would later lead to
the purchase of his first guitar, a microphone and a four track recorder. His
return to St. Lucia would see the onset of his quest to find his place in a
very broad industry - The Music Business.

provide the hands on experience that he could learn from. He would eventually build
his own demo studio where he would become known for developing his own brand of
alternative St. Lucian music.
