Biography


Oswald began to sing at a very young age. He used to sing everywhere and affirmed, it is an automatism . At the age of 13 he became an orphan and was forced to go live with a foster family. Since then he started writing songs to reveal his feelings. These writings were for him a mean of expression that he used to heal his heart after this tragedy.

In 2007, He won the fifth edition of the "Defi Lyceen which took place in Guadeloupe where he faced sixteen other participants of the Caribbean. The apotheosis of his career was confirmed when he was invited to perform along with other big names such as Ralph Tamar, Tania Saint-Val, Dominique Coco, and Martine Sylvestre, in the first part of the tribute concert to George Benson, the famous American guitarist, singer and composer, in Guadeloupe, in December 2007. That same year, Oswald released his first Maxi single called " My life " composed of four titles of soul and R&b recorded in Yard Studio in Saint-Martin.

Michel Mado, talented pianist and songwriter of Guadeloupe, estimated that he has made a special discovery in Oswald's presence and granted him a title on his album Dedicace released in 2008.
