Adrian Allen also known as Lusion, is from Great River /Hopewell District, Hanover in Jamaica West Indies.
Born May 12th,
1991 his first performance was at an engagement with his mother in
a friend's church at the age of 9 years old singing "I'm Longing For a
Home". After this first debut people at the church and in the community
wanted to hear more of Lusion's wonderful God given talent.
Thereafter he continued on for 3 years accompanying his mother, a Deaconess, with performing all over the country in different churches & functions. At the age of 12, he executed his first solo appearance at a church event singing gospel.
Surprising to him, he received an overwhelming response from the audience. It was at this moment that he was given the assurance that singing was a goal he wanted to pursue. He continued on to sing solo as well as with choirs at different churches all over Jamaica. His main church choir was Open Bible based out of Hanover.
It's rather natural
that many have inquired about the origin of his name Lusion and what
does it stand for? At the age of 18, a dear friend BlaydMan, who is a
deejay he used to perform with, presented the name Illusion for young
Adrian. Although he was welcoming to a stage name, he informed BlaydMan
that he is not an illusion, regardless of the fact that people see him
for who he is not, he is real. Therefore, he decided he would drop the
"IL" and be known alternately by the name Lusion.
Montego Bay is what
opened the door to the opportunities for him to showcase his musical
talents. In grade 9 he sang Neo's song "So Sick" at his high school
and once again the audience went in a frenzy, some even asking for
signed autographs. After this eye opening performance, Lusion started
writing his own songs. Composed at the age of 15, he achieved his
first self-written gospel song entitled "In God We Put Our Trust".
had two self-written songs "The Way You Make Me Feel" followed by "The
Streets Ain't Safe". Thanks to a well known Reggae artist by the name
of Chokey Taylor, he was granted the opportunity to perform "The Streets
Ain't Safe" at the popular Ms. Hopewell Beauty Pageant in 2008. Chokey
Taylor played a significant role as a mentor in Lusion's early years who
he is very grateful for having in his life.
In 2012 he merged with Garrison Entertainment. His first song on the label was entitled "Cry For The Poor" which was a major hit and had heavy rotation on the leading radio stations in Jamaica. With dedication, perseverance and drive he along with the Garrison Entertainment Family both knew their combined talents and skills can produce wonderful music. He has also had the honor of working with Black Chiney from this relationship.
During this connection the song "Gun Clean" was created. He
has been making many appearances across Jamaica performing live at
various events and radio stations. In 2012 he alongside Garrison
Entertainment formed a family fun day event that involved giving back to
the community by way of raising funds and donations for school supplies
for Watford Hill Primary School in Hanover Jamaica.
