Mix the strict stern lifestyle of a military upbringing, with the rough and volatile livity of a Jamaican garrison, the educational background of a decorated scholar and an overdose of musical influence, and the end product would probably be KONSHENS.

Well enroute to becoming a musical powerhouse and earn his spot in the hearts of music lovers worldwide and in the pages of music history.

His entrance onto the reggae/dancehall scene is quickly becoming a distant memory as he is already being dubbed "THE NEW FACE OF REGGAE/DANCEHALL MUSIC" by many. Various awards and nominations such as...the EME{excellence in music}, "BEST NEW ARTISTE 08", the STONE LOVE "BEST NEW ARTISTE 08" award, several nominations in the IRAWMA, HYPE TV and RE.TV awards including SONG OF THE YEAR for his debut single "WINNER", the only new artiste to have a nomination for this award. KONSHENS' musical career started in early 2005 while in the duo SOJAH with his older brother DELUS.

While living in SHERLOCK CRESCENT and still doing '9-5s, the brothers searched for the means to manifest their musical calling. They were then directed to CASH FLOW STUDIOS in the neighboring Cooreville Gardens. Here, they recorded a string of demos and stumbled upon what would be the track to jumpstart their career.

"PON DI CORNER"

The single "PON DI CORNER" became an instant hit upon its arrival into the Japanese market; it was #1 on the charts for most of 2005 and was also very huge in the "street scene" to this day. This prompted a one month tour of Japan in 05, another three weeks tour in 2006 and the release of an album exclusively to Japan the same year. Since then SOJAH has released an album in Europe and toured extensively there, making stops in AUSTRIA, GERMANY, FRANCE, FINLAND, CZECH REP., etc. This international success was never enough as the brothers wanted that "home support" so the decision was made to become three entities...SOJAH, KONSHENS, and DELUS as separate acts, in an attempt to "spread out the attack" .

According to KONSHENS: "We can't just force ourselves on the people, we have to space it out and take our time to move in", he said in an interview.

"WINNER"

The first signs that this plan was going to work came after the release of KONSHENS' debut single "WINNER". The track caught the reggae/dancehall scene totally off guard, in the midst of a worldwide financial crisis the tracks messages of hardwork, drive and a hustling mentality along with gritty hard hitting and controversial lyrics came with impeccable timing and was an instant hit. Now after recording several hits including "RASTA IMPOSTER", "THIS MEANS MONEY" and "GOOD GIRL GONE BAD" with TARRUS RILEY; performing on almost every major Reggae show, such as -- SUMFEST, IRIE JAM in New York, REGGAE ON THE HILL in Barbados and REBEL SALUTE, etc... KONSHENS insists that he'll be taking it one step at a time until his name and work is cemented in history.

Signing to managment of Platinum Camp Records out of New York and Jade Lee of Jade Promotions as exclusive worldwide agent in late 2009 Konshens is destined for big things.
