SEE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW...



1. What's your birth name?
My birth name is Darryl Je'Noel

2. Where were you born?
I was born in George Charles Bulvad, Marchand, Castries , St.Lucia, W.I

3. How would you classify your Music, Dancehall or Reggae?
Well, I actually do both, Dancehall and Reggae. Yet I am very versatile. My intake of music has been of all various genres, (creating an output of versatility). Hence why, I do other genres which are unique and have originality to them.

4. Who or what influenced your career choice?
Many artiste's I have enjoyed in past and present times. I am referring to the artiste's that do songs which have come today and gone tomorrow, I wasn't too impressed with this and I believed that I had the right talent and strive to make a significant difference. This is due to the fact that I spent the majority of my childhood exploring different aspects of music. I am still fascinated by what can be achieved through this art-form. I chose this career for the love of music. I would say, you cannot separate the love, the beat, from the heart or, if we can look at it from a different view and say music chose me.

5. Did you get formal training?
I did not have any formal training. However, I believe that doing something which you enjoy for long periods of time gives you training for what is to come.

6. Do you write your own music?
Yes, I do write my own material and I enjoy expressing my own lyrical ability.

7. If yes, where do you get your lyrical ideas to write?
Through experience, as I started life's adventures from a very young age; the lyrics just flow from my mind. My experiences in life have helped me perpetuate my articulate skills with developing my own lyrics.

8. Who is your mentor?
I do not have a specific mentor but, everyone in general influence me. As I live and learn from the old artiste's to the new ones by listening and studying their work.

9. Which of your songs do you love the most?
Thats' a very hard one to answer. However, I do not think I can choose one. I love them all for their individual contribution to my career; their unique creativeness and the feedback I receive for each piece.

10. What is your worst experience since becoming an artist?
My worst experiences are mainly surrounded by the stress of dealing with some DJ's working in our industry. I get approached by many of them from all areas of the globe requesting jingles, drops and dubs for free. Yet, they do not recollect that they are not the only ones wanting them. Regardless, my main focus is creating my pieces to distribute to everyone who has great love for music.
Unfortunately, sometimes there may be some disputes. Quite a few groups of DJ's refuse to acknowledge that I am a hard working artiste with a history of great music. They see me as a new artiste and request my hard work without wanting to pay for studio time at least. I have stood my ground and managed to still produced songs that they enjoy playing with or without the jingles, drops and dubs. I view my jingles and dubs as exclusives as i'm a unique artiste.

11. Your best experience?
I have actually been using the power of gratitude and manifestation where I visualise and feel the experience before it occurs which can kind of dampen the enjoyment of the present. Due to this, I believe the best is yet to come.

12. What would you change about the industry today?


There are many aspects I would like to change for example, being able to encouraging more artiste's to release songs with more substance lyrically and musically that would last longer. Rather than doing songs just for the mere fact of saying they have material released. It is almost like building a house yet, instead of using bricks for structure and constant support... they use straw. Sometimes, I wonder if people in the industry such as artiste's who, realistically, show little love for the art of music itself but, only show interest in money. However, if this was reversed everyone would make great music because it would be expressed straight from the heart. A lot of great artiste's follow similar trends and fade from fame; even individuals I have looked up to in the past. So, I hope there can be some changes made to this soon.

13. What advice would you give to young upcoming artists?
Always be yourself. Only you can bring the best out of you if you just be yourself. You are original in yourself! If possible, do songs which can also be played amongst the family unit and not just one calibre as we all know that no one is one way incline. Study your craft while staying positive and believing in yourself. Be patient.

14. How would you describe your music to people?
It varies, it can be educational, uplifting, something to take your mind away from your problems or even a solution to your problems while dancing away. I keep it versatile and unpredictable.

15. What image does your music portray?
Real life ventures and togetherness.

16. What are your career goals?
To attract as many diverse cultures as possible to my career as I sing songs they all can relate to at some point in their lives. Would be touring many countries performing for the fans and supporters or just global music lovers. The world can unite through music. I would love to be the one who can unite groups of people from all over the world through my work.

17. How would you define the word success?
Having a sense of self worth or achievement.

18. How do you market yourself?
Majority of my marketing is through social media and networking. This also allows me to have contact with others from all over the world who want to hear my music and get to know me.

19. Do you have a manager?
Not at present though, I am open to any offers.

20. If no, who handles your business?
I do all the business management for myself.

21. Are you assigned to any specific label?
Not at the moment.

22. Give five words that describe you, your style and personality.
I define myself as versatile, humorous, talented, ambitious and confident.

23. Do you have any new material coming out soon?
Of course I do! I always have new material ready to release. My work is ongoing and I will never stop striving until I have achieved what is meant for me.

24. Have you ever gone on any major tour/tours?.
Not as yet. However, I have been approached by many individuals to do performances in places such as, Canada, Germany, Guyana and St Lucia. I would need some very important aspects in place for these to happen for example, a manager and the right venue and so on. I believe the event should be well organised and the ones I have been approached by so far have not delivered that.

25. What is the biggest festival/stage show you've performed on?
I haven't done any as yet. I have been concentrating on building up my fan-base. Vast majority of people just google my name and download my songs online,which is helping me generate a high demand for future tours. My songs are also available on my new YouTube channel. This will allow the people who can't access the download files to listen to the songs.
