22 year-old Krishane is an exciting new talent bringing a fresh Caribbean infused sound to the Pop Urban landscape. Influenced by the Reggae Music of his homeland, Krishane offers a youthful, multicultural voice to a sound that has enjoyed sustained success internationally for decades.
Raised in the countryside town of Christiana, in the parish of Manchester, Jamaica, Krishane’s childhood was suffused in the sounds of Sanchez, Garnett Silk and Taurus Riley, as well as Pharrell, Michael Jackson and Usher. The son of Reggae star Barrington Levy, Krishane was immersed in the Music Industry from an early age, fuelling his desire to carve his own niche within it. “Everything I do, creatively, comes back to Jamaica; my songs are infused with organic tribal sounds from traditional instruments such as the Congo drum, banjo guitar, steel pans, fife flute and the thumb piano. I want my music to represent life in Jamaica; the weather, the food, the vibe, the music. There are all these little hints in my music, to reflect my origin and roots. At first glance you might think that I make Urban-Pop, but it’s important to me that the music I make is credible and authentic. I want to make music that will last.”
After the release of his smash hit Top 40 record Drunk & Incapable featuring songstress Melissa Steel, Krishane is back with his reggae inspired song ‘Inconsiderate’ featuring afro-beat star Patoranking which is lighting up both the UK and overseas with its infectious vibe. This talented musician is also writing for a number of other artists such as Tinie Tempah and Jess Glynne. Krishane is quietly confident that he has the ability to take his sound all over the world. “I always say to myself ‘I am possible’. I never think ‘what if’ music doesn’t work out. Life is what you make it. Never set obstacles in your brain.” An unusually gifted talent with a unique way of seeing the world, Krishane has the potential to become a worldwide star, thanks to his inimitable talent and love for music. “I’ve been bought up to believe that being unique is what will make you remembered. I don’t worry about being ‘the next big thing’,” he insists. “I’m someone who wants to leave a legacy in music when I pass. I want to create music that lasts a lifetime, not a week.”
