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

Keynote Records Alongside Canada’s RAW Media Announce K’Coneils’ First Canadian Tour

On the heels of closing the year with a successful tour alongside Grammy winning Morgan Heritage, billboard charting artist K’Coneil will be arriving in Toronto at the end of January for approximately a two week stint as he takes on the central-east coast of Canada.

Besides the obvious strong Caribbean diaspora in Canada, along with the influence of reggae and dancehall in mainstream music displayed in such hits as “Sorry” by Canadian native Justin Bieber, or Tory Lanez various hits, Canada is a melting pot of music and culture which falls in place with K’Coneil’s “Genre Fluid” mantra as his music establishes his brand of successfully blending the genres to create a masterpiece of sonic perfection.

To press day, K’Coneil will perform on Tuesday, January 31st at STAGES in Toronto, Ontario, Saturday, February 4th in Ottawa, Ontario and Sunday, February 5th in Montreal, Quebec, with more dates to be announced. The artist will also be completing a media tour taking the time to introduce himself to the various media houses and fans alike, while linking with such celebrities as renowned soccer star Dwayne “ Dero” De Rosario.
On his northern journey, K’Coneil will take advantage of Montreal’s historical landscape blended with modern scenery to film the music video for his next single “Loving You Right” off his hit debut “Love/Lust” EP. Peaking at # 25 on on Billboard Reggae Album Sales Chart and in top 10 iTunes reggae chart, “Love/Lust” is rooted in the foundations of Reggae from his birth country Jamaica, on each track he expertly taps into the grit and grime of his homeland of New York City to tell stories of “Love and Lust.” With romantic punctuation’s of bedroom trysts, K’coneil seeps in a raw accented Caribbean dialect anchored in simple RnB melodies to visually provide glimpses of his current state of mind. With contributing production from Billboard charting, Seanizzle and New York Radio DJ Cali B, “Love/Lust’s” songs, subject matters, and inspirations, is truly a masterpiece of genre fluidity.

“I am very excited to introduce myself to Canada and take in the vibes of such a diverse and beautiful country. The diversity excites me as it reflects who I am and my music.”

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
