Dancehall Reggae artiste D'vercity Official Biography

D'vercity - Born Leroy Christopher Anthony Griffiths on August 18th to Yvonne Dale and Leroy Griffiths Snr. He grew up surrounded by music.

Growing up between Waltham Park, Duhaney Park and Cooreville Gardens, his love affair with music began as far back as age seven, where like so many others he got his start in the Sunday School Choir.

Exposure to Reggae and Dancehall came by way of the sound systems that would play in the community on Saturday nights.  After moving to live with his Aunt in Cooreville Gardens, he was further exposed to Gospel and R&B within the household. This early exposure laid the groundwork for what would become his life’s passion though he was unaware of it at the time. As a student at the Duhaney Park Primary he was drawn to sports and the Spelling Bee, but music was never far from his mind.

He could not escape his love for music despite his involvement in Boy’s Champs, Minor League Football and Manning Cup; joining the high school choir was not enough, during his free time he could be found beating benches and singing with friends. It all came together at age of 18 when he first realized that  his love for poetry and music could come together into a fully structured song, melody included. He had  found his voice and there was no turning back.

He found a home at Cashflow Records with Neil Mitchell and X providing mentorship, where he released a few singles “Nah Stay Poor” and “Don’t Let Go” which led to an international recording “Mad Sitten” with Fleximus Prime of Netherlands. However he found himself pulled away from his dream’s pursuit by having to work and complete his studies at UTECH. After completion he did a social commentary on the  $5,000 bill “Di Bill” produced by Xyle which provided rotation and interviews on local stations, while his other works have been receiving attention via the internet.

Always needing an outlet D’vercity is currently working on a number of various projects namely his EP entitled “LIFE”, including the song “These Streetz I’m From” which has a video airing on both RETV and HYPE TV. He is looking forward to taking his career to the next level with upcoming singles such as “Dem a Wicked” by High Expectations/Double Trouble Records, “Guide di Youths” by Steven Gemini (NWE) and songs from a few other producers. His drive to prove to himself and others that he has what it take to transform talent and ambition into stardom, keeps him working despite the challenges of a competitive industry.

Confident in his abilities, D’vercity is not afraid and as such has laid the foundation for a co-owned record label “One Way Records / Double Trouble Music” with Caldhino & Simmo T. They recently released a relatively successful compilation project called the ‘Partyholic Riddim’ featuring Ding-dong, Stacious & G-Whizz among others. Additionally he has done audio and video commercials courtesy of Cuferri productions for Mothers, Sagicor & Pepsi and featured in a few scenes of the movie “Get A Life” which was released last summer both locally and overseas.

Whether it’s as a singer, songwriter or D.J., he provides entertainment, asks questions and inspires.  While there is not a clear label for his music it is definitely positive and does not want for substance or creativity, but rather exists in that place where its “D’vercity” makes it accessible to all.
