KONSHENS


Artist


DANCEHALL

Inspired by, among others, the great Beres Hammond and raised on early rising gospel renditions, Garfield Spence was aware of music and its impact from an early age.

He first appeared on the music scene in the duo Sojah Brothers alongside his brother Delus. They got their big break in Japan after recording the hit single "Pon Di Corner" on the Guilty Riddim produced by Cash Flow Records. "Pon Di Corner" rode in the top five positions on various Japanese Reggae charts for most of 2005 and following this, they debuted their first album in Japan titled Sons Of Jah that earned them a successful tour of Japan.

In 2007 Garfield was taken to one of Jamaica's most diverse record labels, Natural Bridge Studios, and recorded a track on their latest production the Cranberry riddim. So impressed was CEO Mark Pinnock they immediately signed the hopeful talent to the prominent Jamaican based label Natural Bridge Records and Garfield started recording solo as Konshens.

Konshens has had the opportunity to work with some top producers in the game, including Cash Flow, Ward 21, Natural Bridge, Skatta, Vertex and In the Streetz, who have produced dancehall hits such as "Monster", "Winner", "Bad Mind", "Ova Here", "Jah Protect I", "Caan Draw We Out" and "Real Love". Collaborations include working with with Black Rose from Norway, Messallie from France, Jamaican born artist Martina and Tarrus Riley on the track "Good Girl Gone Bad".

Garfield has focussed his energy on directing his own music videos and promoting his label Subkonshus Music. This included an extensive tour of Europe spanning seven countries and 17 cities as well has playing at Reggae Sumfest 2010 at home in Jamaica.

Konshens' smooth, unpredictable yet aggressive delivery meshed with feverishly potent riddims make him a talent to be reckoned with and we cant wait to hear what comes next!
