Ras Boops

Ras Boops DIDN'T CHOOSE MUSIC, MUSIC CHOSE HIM!

My passion for music began at the tender age of five, whilst growing up in the West Indies.  Reggae music would be played on the family radio and artists such as Culture, Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Peter Tosh, among others, would chant their powerful messages to me through the radio speakers. These reggae icons inspired me to start playing a musical instrument - the acoustic guitar.

When I was about 9 years old, my brother and I were asked to perform in front of the entire school. I remember the nerves getting the better of me the first time I was on stage, but my Headteacher encouraged me to share my talent. That was the beginning of Ras Boops...

From then on, I played music and sang at every opportunity.

Moving forward to the present day, I have used music to keep me sane at some difficult moments in my life. I thank Jah for my talent and for being there for me.  Now, "I'll be there..."
