DANIELLE D.I. - NOTHING ON ME

DANIELLE-DI

Her petite frame, intense eyes and childish grin add to her appeal. Born and raised a stone’s throw away from the home of the legendary Bob Marley, she is determined to follow in his footsteps as an ambassador for her homeland. Her relationship with music dates back to St. Andrew High. She was a student who hungrily gobbled up the popu- lar music at that time. Listening to the racy rants of 'Patra', 'LadySaw', and the boastful lyrical bites of 'Beenie Man' among other leading acts. The sounds of Hip Hop, and R&B were equally close to her heart, through Rappers 'Lil Kim', 'Jay-Z' and 'Foxy Brown'. She developed songwriting skills as an adolescent, while studying in the U.S. Her love and passion for reggae music led to return to her island home to begin her musical quest of being a recording artiste. She proceeded with the launch of her first release, “Turn him on” which she co-produced. The saucy track featured prolific songwriter and dancehall sensation, 'Ce’Cile'. The accompanying music video swiftly garnered high rotation on local / Caribbean TV stations. Danielle D.I. was now established as the hot newcomer on the dancehall reggae scene. Her charm, passion and drive soon landed her a track with 'Gramps Morgan' of the group 'Morgan Heritage' in addition to dancehall icon, 'Beenie Man'. It was a great achievement to collaborate with Beenie on the upbeat song, “Brown girl in the ring”. Her demand grew and soon Birchill records sought her, to produce “Downtown Man”. This release dismissed all qualms suggesting an amateur status. She officially moved up the ranks, performing on major festivals such as: 'Reggae Sumfest' and 'Sunsplash' as well as the greatest one reggae show on earth, 'Sting'. Her next big hit came through DJ Karim with “Beat it”. This track established her as a force to be reckoned with. The infectious track brought Danielle D.I. great demand outside of her country with shows in Chicago, New York, Trinidad and London among other destinations. Infamous dancehall superstar, Vybz Kartel fell for the monster hit, “Beat it”. He offered a remix and pursued to make it a reality. When Danielle D.I. heard the lyrics Kartel laid down, she was immensely impressed with his wit and genius. She later allied with Truck Back Records to acquire the incredibly successful and controversial recording, “Man weh mi nuh want”. A brazen dancehall track launching lyrics blows at female artiste D’Angel. To achieve her goal Danielle D.I. has partnered with a robust team headed by Keona Williams alongside Sly & Robbie. In June 2013 she released her debut album, The Rebel with Taxi Records and One Pop Music. The album’s lead single features Cherine Anderson. The single has been recognized as a "ladies’ anthem”. The Rebel has been racking up rave reviews for the single 'Big Man', which features Grammy winning veteran Shabba Ranks. Her latest release, “My Man” is steadily gaining popularity with it’s much talked about sexually appealing music video. The song was a favorite on the Sex Love and Reggae tour. The management team of International reggae star, Gyptian invited Danielle D.I. to appear as an opening act for the successful tour. Today Danielle D.I. has her sights set on international stardom and is working steadfastly to make the reggae music fraternity proud.

K'Coneil & Kreesha Turner

Love_How_You_Whine


KConeil Kreesha Turner

Music bridges people around the world. No matter one's place of birth, economic class or skin color, it all evokes a human feeling and K'Coneil's is no different. Born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, K'Coneil was raised in the village of Granville in Montego Bay. It was there amid family and friends that at an early age he was indoctrinated in music by singing in the church at the urging of his beloved grandmother.

Coming from a musical family, music was embedded in his DNA, but not to be stereotyped, education played a major importance in the young artist life. At the age of 16 he migrated to the United States on a full soccer scholarship where he attained his Bachelor's Degree in Finance. But there was no denying his musical calling, and while in college, K'Coneil joined up with a group which went on to win a singing contest at the prestigious Madison Square Garden.

After the group was dissolved, K'Coneil continued to hone his musical craft by writing and voicing for notable producers. His early singles, "GYAL A YOU" and "ME ONE," have received heavy rotation on various worldwide airwaves, while has allowed him to grace stages alongside some of the biggest names in music.

A vocalist influenced by his reggae roots and the musical melting pot of his urban surroundings in New York City, K'Coneil sounds admittedly, doesn't classify by the industry standards. Rather than to be boxed, K'Coneil created his own lane of sonic perfection, which can only be classified as being "genre fluid," by comfortably fusing rhythms, genres and sounds from Reggae, Dancehall, R&B and Pop.

On June 24th, 2016 K'Coneil released his debut "Love/Lust" EP which peaked at #10 on the reggae iTunes album charts, and charting on billboard. Among the hit filled EP, the lead single "Hot Like You" and follow up "Feel So Right" have been blazing the airwaves of major stations worldwide with the respective videos garnering high numbers of views on VEVO and YouTube. K'Coneil closed 2016 with a successful tour alongside Grammy winning Morgan Heritage, and kicked off 2017 with a Canadian Winter Tour where he filmed the 3rd single off his EP "Loving You Right", and has followed up with "Love How You Whine" video filmed in Miami featuring Canadian actress/singer Kreesha Turner.
