Biography

Skygrass

When three young men decided to combine their musical talents, thus formed the core of the greater movement
to be known as Skygrass.

Simon, Suane and Rasheed found their unique sound to be rooted in the heavily drum and bass influenced rhythms
of reggae music, while sky-bound with the high flying energy of rock guitar; punctuated by the street flavoured lyrical
delivery of Jamaican dancehall. Simon---referred to as a “Vocally potent lead singer”, by Andre Frater of the
Jamaica Gleaner, and a “Lyrical genius” by Craig Parks of KeepLeft Records, leads each performance with his
passionate delivery on vocals and rhythm guitar. While Rasheed--son of Jamaican master classical guitarist Norman
McCallum-- energizes each set with with his Dub-Rock Prowess; accompanied by Suane--a natural drummer, dubbed “A monster on the drums”, by Wayne Armond of the legendary reggae band Chalice.

Based in Kingston Jamaica, the band plays a key role in the re-surgence of live music among Kingston's
youth. Giving critically acclaimed performances at various venues, including the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival
Talent Stage 2010, which ushered in their return to the festival the following year as they opened the main stage
for Maroon 5.
