Payday Music Group was formed by Austin Yolando Green. He was born in the community of Red Hills. Now as a Reggae and Dancehall Producer “Austin Kevin Green” has seen the best and worst sides of the genre.
As a well respected studio engineer, he has been in the business of music production for over 9 years starting his illustrious career back in 1998 at Gargamel Music, home of the superstar Buju Banton, who is also his first cousin.

Bounty then added his influence to the mix by officially introducing him to the Boss Lady of Solid Agency. Sharon Burke then welcomed him into the organization.
