RRR! Happy to see that the Jamaica Observer used two of my photos for a feature on a concert I recently shot. Hoping more things come!

Farewell To Clayton ‘DubMaster’ Lynch   Leave a comment

I was shocked to hear the recent news of the tragic death of one of the island’s most talented and promising poets, Clayton “DubMaster” Lynch, a member of the group LSX, and a firebrand on the creative circuit. There aren’t words to say when yet another one of our creative souls is gone too soon. Fellows like Clayton have what I label “fuel”. Boundless, passionate energy that resonates far beyond what our eyes can see. Last night, I saw this energy return, resonating in Lynch’s new form and through his group member Jerome “Grandmaster Sage”, soaring upwards and forwards. There wasn’t much I could even say. My silence was reverence and reflection. I just observed the steady outpouring of words and memories and remembered the laugh, the smile, and the ‘fuel’ that I got from Lynch on so many different occasions, whether it was a Tony’s bar or any of the other poetry places I saw him perform. We respect tears when tears should be shed, and we respect heart, especially one like his. I Wish him safe travels on the next trod.

I-OCTANE PERFORMANCE @ TRACKS & RECORDS   Leave a comment

Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records restaurant kicked off its live music series recently with shows by artistes like Kabaka Pyramid and Sizzla Kalonji. I passed through the I-Octane show and took some pictures, with help from my friend Justin Awn. Good vibes!

The week continues. The night got pretty random after I rolled with Bounty Killa’s crew to escape.

Thursday Night in Kingston   Leave a comment

Hung out at a cool spot called Nanook on 20 Burlington avenue. It’s a weekly jam where anyone is welcome to perform with professional musicians as a backing band.
