Rastafari truth GIDEON GRANSTON

by Doreen crevier
(Jamaica/Canada )

Soulful singer-songwriter, percussion drummer and MC, Gideon Granston is a musician on a mission promoting messages of peace, harmony, truth and spirituality to the locals of his home and native land, Jamaica, and the world at large.

Born and raised in Black River, the capital city of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica,Gideon, as a young grade school student, experienced his first reggae concert sparking a lifelong musical passion. That first concert, at the Black River Independent Park, was where Granston witnessed some of the best reggae chart-toppers of the day including Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaac, and Freddie McGregor.

While the reggae performers were an endless source of possibilities, wonder and excitement, Gideon Granston derived even greater inspiration from DJs Jose Wales to Super Cat to Ninja Man to Shabba Ranks to name just a few. But it would be some years later that teenage Gideon would find his ultimate idol in legendary reggae and Capitol Records recording artist, Jacob “Killer” Miller.

While Gideon Granston always sensed music was in his DNA he would eventually have that belief confirmed. Unbeknownst to young Gideon, the late Jacob Miller was not only his idol, he was also his father.

From the time Gideon saw that first Black River Park concert, he began singing in and around his school and hometown, and soon embarked on formal music education. He didn’t just study music; he lived it. As the school years passed, word travelled that teenage Gideon was a musical force to be reckoned with. The principal of the Black River High school recognized Granston’s talent and offered him the chance to sing at the 1993 graduation ceremonies.

Upon completion of high school, and throughout the mid to late 1990s, Granston retreated to the country where he worked as an aluminum industry laborer in support of his burgeoning music career. It was amidst his Manchester, Jamaica lifestyle that Gideon Granston’s spirituality evolved learning and loving the ways of the Nya Bingi Rastafarian African culture led by esteemed Emperor Haile Selassie the 1st. Fueled by the divine power in Christ, and in himself, Gideon spiritually immersed into the teachings of the Rastafarian culture.



During the early years of the new century Gideon was now a full-fledged member of the Rastafarian community and lived amongst popular and accomplished artists collaborating with such notables as Legend, Ras T, and DangerRas Lionheart of London. One other such notable, Sizzla, launched Granston into the Kingston music scene and invited him to sing at Sizzla’s concerts.

From that point in 2005, Gideon Granston began recording his own songs at the Train Recording Studio owned by international reggae star, Ken Boothe, one of the first Jamaican greats to hit Broadway and who was inducted into the Reggae Music Hall of Fame. Ken Boothe clearly saw something in Granston and welcomed him into his home with open arms and an open door; Boothe provided studio time for Granston to write and record. It was at this time that Gideon learned more about the music and lifestyle of the Rastafarian culture.

Through the proverbial trials, tribulations and assorted struggles, it took 8 long years for Granston to receive, process and translate profound messages achieved through his divine meditative state of thought and being.

The result is his first album, Rastafari Truth, serendipitously completed on July 23, 2013, the birthday of Haile Selassie the 1st. Gideon Granston interprets the culture of Rastafarian prophecy wrapped in rich cool vocals and hot island beats sounding truth, beauty, peace and love.
