Lushy Banton has been bringing his electrifying mix of dancehall music and sing/rap style of innovative performance to audiences for over two decades. Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, Lushy grew up entrenched in musical influences—whether the sounds of Michael Jackson or the dancehalls where his father promoted dances throughout the Grants Pen area.
These early introductions exposed him to—not just Reggae and the behind-the-scenes aspects—but also live performance techniques from some of the region’s top acts. With such examples, he spent his youth perfecting his chatting craft and putting in intense workouts to the mic.
Having easy access to one of Kingston’s finest sound systems, the renowned Stereo One, based in his native Grants Pen area, his practicing helped him hone a unique stage presence and vocal recording prowess.
