Tyrical

Tyrical is a Jamaican songwriter, performer and producer.  He currently works with Tyrific Records, which is a partnership with Dave Wallace, a Jamaican born U.S. based entrepreneur. His current song “Can’t Believe” is getting heavy rotation on several radio stations in Jamaica, elsewhere in the Caribbean and Overseas.

Tyrical was born Michael Harris in Barbican, Jamaica in 1976. He says the rough streets of Barbican was like a University and prepared him for a career in the tough Jamaican Music Industry. His foray in the music industry began at the tender age of 13 years when he linked up with long- time friend singing sweet. Even on the cusp of his teenage years, Tyrical displayed skills that would later usher in a life as an artiste, song writer and producer. He used his many talents to help Singing Sweet with his song writing skills, stage presence and delivery.

At age 17 Tyrical was to get his first major hit when he penned and sang “Youths from the Street” for Producer Colin “Fat” Walters in 1995. The song received a lot of airplay and went on to achieve major success on several charts in Jamaica and overseas. The success of the song gave Tyrical well needed exposure and financial rewards, and opened doors that would have otherwise been closed, including opportunities to work with legendary Jamaican Music producers Stevie and Cleevie. During that time he also formed a close friendship with Baby Wayne, who he still regards as one of the most talented deejays he has ever met.

During the mid to late 90s, Tyrical continued to hone his skills at Freddy McGregor’s ‘Big Ship’ Records, where he later met Mr. Vegas who was an aspiring ‘singjay’. The two became close friends and worked on projects such as the song “Dry Weather House”.  He also helped Mr. Vegas to write the breakthrough song “Heads High.”

In 2002 Tyrical was to achieve even greater success as a song writer after he penned the Dancehall classic “Sufferer” for Bounty Killa. He went on to form a close alliance with Bounty Killa and wrote several other song for the Dancehall legend, including “Dem Bow” and “Dem a lie”.

He also wrote songs for other artistes including Mavado, Elephant Man, Mr. G, Monster Shack Crew, Terror Fabulous and Sugar Minott. However, in many instances he was not officially credited for many of the songs, even though several of them went on to become major hits locally and overseas.

Following the death of his mother in 2005, Tyrical decided to focus on his career as an artiste. He said he did not make this move for material gains but to get the recognition he believes he deserved as a writer/producer who helped to launch the career of other major Dancehall and Reggae Stars.

In 2010, Tyrical scored big with the song “Want my own”.  “Want my own” stayed on several local and international charts for many weeks and gave Tyrical the exposure he desired. The song revealed stories about the selfish side of many of the artistes whose career’s Tyrical helped to steer. It also spoke to his determination to achieve success in the often unforgiving, cut throat industry as well as the setbacks he faced as an artiste who decided to tread the humble, less hype route.

Now under the management of his childhood friend, Dave Wallace, Tyrical is determined to continue to use his multiple talents to improve Reggae/Dancehall Music and take them to the heights they were destined for.

 

JayEdge

Jermaine “JayEDGE” Williams was born in Chapelton, Clarendon on March 15, 1990. He moved to the parish capital May Pen at the age of five where he went to the Hazard Primary school. Music for the entertainer began at the elementary school stage, but church played a major role in developing his skills as a musician. JayEDGE started on the drums in church, sang on the choir, and then eventually, with no formal training, started playing the keyboard, one of the first instruments he personally owned.

The entertainer has always had the gift of performing and this was evident throughout his time at Hazard Primary School and Denbigh High School. In his time at Denbigh he was affiliated with the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) from which he received numerous medals both for his school and as an individual. He was also a finalist in the JCDC children’s gospel finals at a young age.

Having completed high school, without a doubt the entertainer chose to pursue a degree in Music Education at Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (EMC). At EMC JayEDGE completed the preliminary qualifying year and was enrolled in the bachelor’s program. His schooling was deterred as a result of worthwhile opportunities in the music business. It was at EMC that he became a part of the band Kuttin Edge which resulted in the name, ‘JayEDGE’. The band currently goes by the name “The Subkonshus band”- affiliated with popular dancehall/ reggae artist Konshens. JayEDGE was a keyboardist in the Mystical Revolution Band and the Warrior Love Band also the lead singer at the Whyndham Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica. JayEDGE has left the live music scene to pursue his artist career.

After his premature exit from EMC, JayEDGE ventured into the producing aspect of the music and started to compose his own music. This lead to songwriting and his first official single “Love the Way You Move”, which recording artist Sanjay collaborated on. JayEDGE is a music producer, singer, song-writer and a musician; he wears all three hats, and is currently establishing his own record label.

JayEDGE is a reggae artiste and an instrumentalist which makes him flexible enough to venture into other genres. “Good & positive music” [as quoted by the artiste] is what this talent has to offer to the music industry and is persistent in doing so. Many performances can be expected from JayEDGE as he’s able to accompany himself both on the guitar and on the piano. JayEDGE’s biggest musical influence is Bob Marley, he however has respect for local artistes such as Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond and John Holt; international influences are veterans such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Bolton and Fantasia Barrino.

The artiste released a video for his single “Mek It Play/ Cashpot” in 2014 produced by himself and Kingyard productions. The video was shot by film-maker Kirk Wright. The song and video has gained much traction in the Caribbean since its release.

“My musical foundation and early experience in music is what gives me the edge that is missing from the career of many artistes in the industry and sets me apart immeasurably.” -JayEDGE
