Bio:
Originally referred to as Sentimental Touch in the Jazz World, C-Sharp came together in December 2001 with core members Aeion “Yaaka” Hoilett, Dwain “Wiya” Campbell and Ordean “Bingy” Francis while studying music at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. All hailing from the North Coast, the group began their musical journey in the renowned “Room 13” at the college, „jamming‟ for hours after classes. Needing to satisfy their insatiable appetite for playing music, during the first two years of coming together, the group played at weddings, school concerts and many other small events once the opportunity arose. During this time guitarist Lamont “Monty” Savory joined the group and C-Sharp formed alliances with great musical influences such as Ibo Cooper, of the famed Third World Band, that would later on prove very influential in their becoming the renowned group they are today. In perfecting their sound, C Sharp changed faces by welcoming Randevon “Randy” Patrick as their new drummer, and Chevaughn Clayton with his dynamic vocal skills as lead singer and percussionist, both bringing a solid sound to an already eclectic five-man band. In nine years C-Sharp boasts an impressive resume, having toured most of Europe, parts of The United States of America and other parts of the world. In 2003 they were invited to represent Jamaica, in Suriname, at The Caribbean Festival of the Arts (CARIFESTA). Along with performing at CARIFESTA, the group was invited to share in Haiti‟s milestone 200th year of Independence in early January 2004. In 2005 C-Sharp represented Jamaica and reggae music at the Jamaican Independence Celebration held in Beijing China. Upon returning from China the group released a single titled “No More,” the video for which spent 14 weeks on the CVM Hit List Chart in the Top 5 position. The song got international recognition, making radio charts from Africa to Europe and parts of the Caribbean. The group has worked closely with phenomenal artistes such as Third World‟s Ibo Cooper, Gospel Sweetheart‟s Robert and Jenieve Bailey, Taurus Riley, Abijah, Queen Omega, Turbulence and was the touring band for reggae artistes Tony Rebel and Queen Ifrica. They also worked as an opening act for Roberta Flack and Peabo Bryson at the Hilton Hotel in Kingston Jamaica at a special Valentine Day concert. Since 2005 they have worked as the opening act for Rita Marley and the I-Three singers in Germany, Hungary, Italy and Ghana. C-Sharp made a presentation of some of their best tracks taken from their Debut album, titled “What A Day,” at Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest of 2005, Red Label Wine East Fest 2007 and Smile Jamaica Africa Unite 2008, showcasing a vibrant collection of sound and youthful melody. Since then they have been releasing single after single, but are presently working on their new album, scheduled to be released 2011. Their latest singles, “Nurse,” “What‟s the Matter with the World,” “Don‟t Come Searching” and “No More,” promoted on www.reverbnation.com/csharpband and www.facebook.com/csharpband, have been creating a lasting impression on the international airwaves and will be featured on their new album. C-Sharp continues to tour and, as they build their musical reputation, a “Sentimental Touch” is left with fans worldwide.
