Legacy Mekas Muzik
Born in Kingston 20, Jamaica, I started my musical journey at the tender age of 12 when I was introduced to my first love by my then music teacher and mentor Mr. Audley Searchwell, at The Pembroke Hall High school.
It was then that I realized music would be a part of my life and the path of my life’s journey forever because the passion just keeps growing. Out of this passion my current movement “Legacy Mekas” was founded.
Whilst a student, I was also one of the founding members of The Pembroke Hall High school band which would then later open up many doors for me. While out playing on one of the band’s gigs, I was spotted and sought out by a local steel band, The Caribbean Regals. I would then go on to become one of the band’s drummers and begin to travel the island performing at hotels and stage shows.
After high school, I enrolled at The Edna Manley School of Music, and with just one year into my studies, my passion for the arts grew and so was the intense desire to share and educate by indulging in both the playing of music and teaching of the art.
The next phase of my journey let me to The Mico University College where I majored in Music Education and minored in Business. After completing my studies I began my career as a Music Teacher at a preparatory school in Kingston. During my tenure there I prepared my students for JCDC (Jamaica Cultural Development Commission) Music Festivals where they won numerous trophies and medals for both national and regional competitions.
This would then allow me to be inducted into the Pembroke Hall High school hall of fame in 2014.
I later migrated to the United States where I’ve performed with different musicians from all over the world and perform on various shows and festivals.
