    Teri - International Recording Artist

    Teri is an International Singer/Songwriter originally from Kingston Jamaica, currently living in Toronto, Canada. She has also spent a significant period of time living in the UK.

    Music has been her passion for as long as she can remember. She grew up singing in the church and also at her local primary school. Teri describes singing as an escape mechanism - a way to escape anything and everything, from the most delightful moments to those that she was often too shy to deal with.  "Music was, and still is, the answer to everything for me" she articulates. Music, she said, defines her in every way; to the point that without music she feels lost and empty.

    Teri best relates to feelings and emotions through music and she expresses herself eloquently through this medium by writing and singing how she is feeling inside. "Music opens my mind and soul to loving and accepting beyond my understanding" she enthuses, "I find sounds and melodies both intoxicating and overwhelming. It takes me on a journey that nothing in this world can or could even begin to describe..." Teri is clearly at her best with music reflecting every mood she could possibly experience or dream of.  She sums this up quite aptly:  "Music is the one thing in this world that has the ability to capture the full and true essence of my being inside out. Music takes my breath away without trying, caring or noticing that it has done so."

    Teri considers music to be her Kryptonite. She says that it is the only thing on earth that can hurt her with its smooth sensuality and its impeccable flawlessness.  It taps into her sensitivity with no sympathy for her vulnerabilities and she invariably succumbs to its energy with her nerve endings on fire hungry for the next sojourn, until she sings another line, hums another melody or composes another song.  

    Teri is not new to the music industry; she has worked with Producers such as: Computer Paul, Robert Livingston, Rowen Johnson, Clive Hunt and features on a compilation project which includes the legendary Sly & Robbie.  She has seven singles currently released on iTunes: Whispery Conversation’, ‘My Every Thing’, ‘Beautiful Hurts’, ‘Not Just Another Girl’, ‘Sweet Baby’, ‘Put It On Me’ (ft Lego Banton) and ‘I’m Free’. All were released on the Love Injection label.

    In 2014 Teri was introduced to Mightyful13 Records Producer Fitzroy Francis via D Boss Global Agency. She has recently entered into a recording agreement with the label to release her first single for 2014, a rendition of the late great Sam Cooke’s “Bring it On Home to Me”.  This will be released worldwide by VPAL on the 27th May, and is already attracting significant pre-release air-play in Jamaica, the USA, Canada and the UK.

  • The Cables

     

                                                                    THE LEGENDARY CABLES 

    The Cables are a Jamaican rocksteady/reggae vocal trio led by Keble Drummond, who recorded for Studio One in the late 1960s.
    The group was led by Keble Drummond (sometimes spelled Keeble), whose first name led to the name of the group. Drummond explained "Now, I look at something with a cable and wires, and I say, well, 'Cables' would be a good name because you could send a message across the world, and that's how I came up with the name". He was backed by harmony singers Elbert Stewart (baritone) and Vince Stoddart (tenor) Drummond was taught the basics of guitar by Peter Austim of The Clarendonians and write his first songs after attending a songwriting course. Drummond had previously been a member of The Sylastians, along with Barry Llewellyn and Earl Morgan of The Heptones, and Clive Campbell of The Aces, and the Cables were first formed in 1962. After recording a single for Sonia Pottinger around 1966, they recorded a string of singles for Studio One, and these were later collected on the album What Kind of World in 1970. "What Kind of World" has been described as "a classic...a low-key showcase for some of the most under-rated vocals of the age". Studio One boss Clement "Coxsone" Dodd built up demand for the "Baby Why" single by limiting it to sound system plays for four months before releasing it.

  • The Tamlins

    THE TAMLINS, consisting of Carlton Smith, Derrick Lara and Junior Moore, started out as a nightclub act in 1970 and by 1972 had won the “Most Outstanding Group” award in Jamaica. This quickly opened other doors and shortly thereafter, they signed a recording contract with one of Jamaica’s then top studios, Dynamic Sounds. Out of this came “Thick And Thin,” a ballad that made a good impression locally and drew interest from foreign labels such as Atlantic and Polydor.

    THE TAMLINS developed prominence in 1974 with “Eighteen With A Bullet,” and this paved the way for their first album titled “Black Beauty,” which was released by Dynamic Sounds and State Recording in England.

    THE TAMLINS went on to record for the famous Channel One which resulted in a chain of hits -– “Hard To Confess,” “That’s Life,” “Thinking” and “Sweat For You Baby,” and also the group’s second album, “Tamlins Greatest Hits.” In 1979, they released “Ting-A-Ling” on the Hawkeye Label in London. “Ting-ALing” became a No. 1 hit on the Black Echoes Chart and also made it to the Top 10 of several other chart.

    Inevitably, numerous local artists were clamoring for the sweet harmony of THE TAMLINS as backing vocals. Willingly, they threw their musical weight behind performances of artists like Delroy Wilson, Pat Kelly, John Holt, Jimmy Cliff and Peter Tosh. They later toured the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, South America and the Eastern Caribbean Islands with Peter Tosh.Out of the Tosh relationship developed a rapport with the famed ‘rhythm twins’, Sly and Robbie, of Taxi Productions.

    THE TAMLINS’ first single on the Taxi Label was “Star,” to be followed by “Laying Beside You Baby” and then the remake of Nina Simone’s “Baltimore,” which was also released internationally by EMI. “Baltimore” held the No. 1 spot for twelve weeks and, indisputably, it was judged the “Number One Record of the Year” in Jamaica on JBC’s “Top 100” for 1980. The group also won the “Best Group Award” from JBC, Radio Jamaica and the Daily News that same year…..
    In 1986, THE TAMLINS performed on “Dancehall ‘86” at Cinema One with Half Pint, Josey Wales and Culture, among others. They not only got a standing ovation, but this was judged the “Best Performance of 1986” at the annual Rockers Awards Show. They also “tore the house down” at Sunsplash ’86 and the Taxi Connection Shows that same year.

    Nineteen eighty-seven saw THE TAMLINS featured on the Freddie Jackson show at the Oceana Hotel, where they proved themselves in such stellar company, receiving thunderous applause and accolades.

    That year THE TAMLINS were nominated in several categories of media awards and won the award for “Best Performers.” In 1988 THE TAMLINS released their album, “I’ll Be Waiting” on the Live & Learn Label and a second album, “Love Divine” for SKD of Miami. A return engagement with Freddie Jackson was scheduled in 1989– this time at the Wyndham Hotel, and once again, fans felt they stole the show. During that year they also participated in shows for the Hugo Hurricane Fund and the United Nation’s Benefit Show. The self-produced single, “Hurt So Good,” was also released that year, to
    critical acclaim.

    Tours of Japan in 1987, performances at Madison Square Garden and in Washington, D.C. and the Detroit, Michigan award for “Top Jamaican Group” are some of the highlights and best held memories of this talented trio.

    The nineties found THE TAMLINS celebrating two decades of success in the music industry, with gems still popping up on the charts. They also had a successful tour of Japan with artists such as the I-Threes, Admiral Bailey and Tiger. One of the high points of THE TAMLINS’ career was performing in an episode of “Miami Vice,” a popular television show during that decade. They wrote and performed several songs for an episode of the show entitled, “Soul On Ice.” They were the first Jamaican musical group to have been featured on a top-rated television series. Performing on stage shows in Jamaica such as the very popular "Rebel Salute" and numerous vintage shows The Tamlins continue to stay in the spotlight and show their longevity. More importantly though, they continue to put out solid reggae music decade after decade.

    "Give Love" the single from their new album crossroads", is now available online.

  • Trevor Castell

    Trevor Castell was born and raised on the roughest streets of one of the most notorious ghettos in Jamaica, Kingston 11 aka Waterhouse/Firehouse,on Oct. 31,1961.

    He is the younger brother of the late Youthman artist Lacksley Castell, who cut albums of distinction such as Morning Glory, Princess Lady and Jah Fire.

    In 1978 Trevor wrote the song "Children of the Israelites" aka "Jah Children" for Lacksley's debut recording for Augusta Pablo, which was recorded on the Hungry Town Label. During that time Trevor and his family lived literally next door to Don Carlos and the legendary King Tubby Studios on Drumalie Ave. So growing up he’d always been exposed to the whole culture of Jamaican music and its evolution to reggae, Trevor was inspired by such artists as his brother Lacksley, Yabby U (Vivian Jackson), Prince Allah, Jackie Edwards, Don Carlos, Cornell Campbell and Delroy Wilson. When the Castell family moved to Duhaney Park, King Tubby purchased the Castell residence for his mother to live in.

    At the young age of 14, Trevor was already hanging out in the rough streets of the ghetto. In the streets people knew him as "Stella" a nickname that is a derivative of his last name. Though considered the "thug" of the family his true desire and ambition was to be a singer. He would go to rehearsals with Don Carlos where the Wailing Souls would practice. Don Carlos and Garth Dennis are the ones credited with giving guidance and inspiration towards the growth of both Trevor and Lacksley as Reggae musicians. Don Carlos more so, because it was he who kept Trevor motivated until Don himself got his big break. Trevor also credits his mother and father, Theresa and Winston Castell, who always provided encouragement, faith and the "never give up your dreams" inspiration.

    Trevor got his first break when best friend, David "Sugar" Lee son of legendary producer Bunny "Striker" Lee, convinced his father to give Trevor a chance to record his own music. In 1983 Trevor broke out with his debut single "Cool and Deadly", recorded on the Gorgon JA and Shuttle UK labels. That same year he recorded "Dance Up A New Kingston" which happened to be the quickest song he ever wrote. The song was inspired by the clash between Jamaican radio disc jockey Barry G and English radio disc jockey David Rodigan. He also did a tune on a 12" called "Well Fare" on the Mustak label distributed by Dynamic Sounds as well as an album for KIBWE Music in Washington DC, manufactured by RAS records called "Sugar Minott - Trevor Castell in Reggae International, which was a compilation of artists that was produces by Ras Jesse and mixed by renowned studio engineer Scientist (once protégé of the legendary “Dubmaster” himself King Tubby). Trevor did 2 tracks on the album entitled "Gypsy Woman" and "Mr. Carpenter" a song that was co - written by little brother Clifton "Bud" Castell. Other tracks on the KIBWE label still yet to be released are "Joker Lover", "Stranger", "Dance the Reggae", "Oppression" and "Ram Dance Master".

    From the late 80's to the present we didn’t hear much from Trevor, due greatly to the passing of his brother Lacksley. Since their bond was so close things were not the same for him anymore, and the "vibe" for the music was no longer there, even though he was in a good musical fraternity like the Bunny Lee Camp to make him excel as singer in the business.

    Today Trevor says he's ready to get "back to basics" and be brave once more. The courage and inspiration to hold the mic again are what his brother, his family and most importantly Trevor are all about, Trevor now resides in Miami with a family of his own and is ready to embark on his career as a Reggae artist, on a mission as a bona- fide legend.

    Trevor Castell is once again ready to make the music of today and tomorrow.
