Dancehall reggae artiste Lightning biography

Dancehall reggae artiste Lightning has arrived on the music scene with his hit single 'Early Morning Flash".

The artiste who's birth name is Christopher Campbell was born in Kingston, Jamaica but at age 13 moved to live with his grandfather and grandmother in Westmoreland, Jamaica.

His grand-parents were farmers so n the farm, he learned to love nature and learned the value of hard work to support his family. He also learned the simplicity and complexity of life with a large family living in a small house.

This is where he developed his songwriting and began singing a accapella with the birds.

He supplemented his family income by selling peanuts to tourists after school, and later he became an apprentice woodcarver, making his own carvings for sale. It was while doing his carpentry work, he would began to compose his first songs.

Lightning's songs centred around the rustic peace of rural life, nature, man's relationship with God as opposed to the dangerous life of street gangs in war-torn Kingston. His favorite reggae artists are Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Beres Hammond and Freddie McGregor.

He honed his craft and soon began making appearances at local stage shows and events in Negril. During one of those performances, he was 'discovered' by producer Sol Chica who, together with Grammy-nominated Amos Chip Dabney, helped him complete his first CD. Lightning is now a Rastafarian and live both in New York and Jamaica.
