Milverton Thompson grew up in the tough, dire, garrisons of Kingston. His mother and stepdad, "helped to foster love and good morals in me that has made me into the man that I am today" Milverton recalls.
Milverton had a great support group while living with his extended family in the Grants Pen community, it was the encouragement of his family and friends which motivated him to develop his remarkable habit of singing while attending the New Day All Age School located in the community. "In the morning while on my way to school, I would sing all types of songs, from Barrington levy to Dennis brown, Milverton was a multi-talented child when growing up, with a renowned love for football...he and his team took home the all age school football competition trophy in 1986.
"Singing on a sound system was my first exposure,
Tony Lou brought me to a studio operated by Gussy Clarke called Music Works on Slypen road where I recorded two songs entitled 'Tira' and 'Confidential'.." He later re-recorded the track 'Tira' at Super T's studio.
In 1996 he did some recordings for Leroy Sibbles at Sonic Sound recording. Later he recorded for Father Romie from Exodus Sound System using the name Mr. Thompson.
