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

Mitch

As the first of three children, Mitch started showing signs of artistic talent at an early age – whether he was drawing some comic book heroes or real life images or singing at church with the choir. It was clear from then where his path would be in life.

‘’My father gave me an acoustic guitar for my eight birthday and he taught him how to play. I was blessed growing up in a music environment, where my father’s record with singers like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Mahalia Jackson, Maya Angelou, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson would spin daily on the turntable. Actually I used to listen to a lot of other music than reggae, which wasn’t so normal. Besides going to church on Sundays me, my brother and sister would attend television-
and radio-programs for kids and by the age of ten, I wrote my first song”.

One evening after attending a volleyball tournament while heading home on a bus Mitch was happily singing and when a lady in the bus heard his voice and asked him if he would like to be a part of a group, his whole life changed and a new exciting chapter began. ‘’The group didn’t know much about harmonies – except for me, so I was given the task to teach them. A.R.P. started doing cabaret at hotels just to improve on our craft and after few years we entered a talent contest and came second. The prize was to record at 321 Cell Block Studio in Kingston for the well-known producer Syl Gordon, who at that time had stellar artists like Buju Banton, Shabba Ranks and many others connected to the studio. We began to draw the interest of producers and popular artistes and within a few years later we had our first hit and then another and another, “it was the best years of my life”.

His time with ARP not only sharpened his vocal skills, but also cultivated his collaborative approach to music, one that is shared by great singers and producers alike.

Citing a diverse collection of vocal influences including R. Kelly, Akon, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Babyface, Mitch singing is an international hybrid of different styles and musical influences, which also affects his song writing.

Today Mitch is an accomplished artist, who has worked with reggae music’s heavyweight producers Sly & Robbie, Donovan Germain, Don Corleone, Mickey Bennett, John John and of course Buju Banton.

His latest album ‘’Lucky’’ is produced by the creative forces of Pharfar and Jahdil and being released on the Copenhagen based Icedrop Rec. it fully shows Mitch’s artistic versatility and many
