At the tender age of six years old, The Wixard started singing harmonies to every song she heard in the studio from her father and on the radio and made her first beat at the age of 10.At the age of 17, The Wixard’s production and songwriting skills caught the ear of her cousin, reggae star Courtney John, who was so intrigued by what he heard that he immediately started mentoring and working with her. The Wixard has produced and remixed for superstars Nelly Furtado, Michael Franti, and Fefe Dobson, as well as many of reggae’s greats such as Beenie Man & MarciaGriffiths.

The Wixard co-wrote and produced 7 tracks for Canadian pop star Kreesha Turner’s sophomore album Tropic Electric, and was the only female producer featured on superstar Paulia Rubio’s Latin Billboard number 1 album Brava. The Wixard has teamed up with Walshy Fire of Major Lazer to produce an album for the Jamaican reggae outfit Nomaddz that is scheduled to release in early 2019.

Jesse David Leroi Grey, aka Jesse Royal, began his career with and was mentored by the late Fatis Burrell (the son of whom’s high school Royal attended), who also produced Jesse’s first two releases, Singing the Blues and Long Days and Short Nights in 2010.
