Born on the tropical island of Jamaica, renown for its bauxite, lush vegetation, exquisite beaches and rich musical heritage, G-Whizz focus is to build on this legacy and in time find a place among the greats. His greatest inspiration is Bob Marley! Hailed as a rising star, the young singer, songwriter and composer diverse talent encapsulates Reggae, R&B & Dancehall displaying such versatility second to none. At this early stage in his career, his delivery and vocal style shows a depth of talent that legendary artiste Johnny “Mr. Buda-Bye” Osbourne commented, “He is ready”. Needless to say anymore, your own experience is the barometer to determine his true potential.
As producers, the Barrett brothers, John and Kevin form the nucleus of Fams House Studio and together with G-Whizz embarked on a musical project a little more than 3 years ago. What they have accomplished in this relatively short period of time is indicative they are following in the tracks of their famous dad, the great bass player and producer Aston “Family Man” Barrett of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame. G-Whizz has released 7 music videos including: “Those Days Are No More” on the Spiritual Warfare rhythm, “Ghetto Life”, “No More War”, “Hush”, “She’s Hot”, “Break Free”, & “Ease My Mind”, a collaboration with female artiste Minx. These videos are also in rotation on Jamaican cable channels: CVM TV, TV J, R.E. TV, Hype TV and Music Plus.
G-Whizz has performed in the Cayman Islands, Club Rehab (formerly Club Midway) – New York City and the following Jamaica venues Asylum, Village, Back Yaad, Cooyah scholarship event, Tempo, Be Mobile back to school, Club Irresistible, the Hilton, The Miss Jamaican Universe Show, Backyaad and Fully Loaded @ James Bond Beach in Jamaica.
His vocal versatility has lead to several collaborations featuring Junior (One Blood) Reid (Gonna Be Alright), Nanko & Atomic (Break Free), Turbulence (Love is Wonderful), Bling Dawg, Minx (Ease My Mind), Deva Bratt, Chi-Ching Ching (We Wont Stop) and others.
Gwhizz single “MUSIC” is featured on Deeboz Muzik A Little Bit More Compilation CD which also features Lutan Fyah, Tony Curtis, Lukie-D, Chezidek, Cha’Maine, Qshan-Deya, Simpleman, Anthony Que & Snypah! His most popular songs are “Blue Seam”, “Like A Lady”, “We Won’t Stop”, “Music”, “Those Days Are No More”, “Ghetto Life” and “No more War.”
Finding the formula to do a follow- up to a good song can sometimes be difficult for a young artist, but G Whizz is an exception. “It’s Gonna Be Alright” features the distinctive vocals of reggae legend Junior ‘One Blood’ Reid shows Jamaica and the world that this talented young man knows where he is heading and he understands what it will take to get him there. He has began to carve out his own niche in the dancehall with the over night success of 2008 ‘She Bad’ and ‘It’s Gonna Be All Right’ is reassurance to the fans that he is not a ‘one hit wonder’.
Fortunately, for G Whizz, he has been blessed with a stamp of approval from Junior Reid whose introductory comment- “G Whizz, new talent in da biz, Junior Reid endorsed him” – lets us know that the new kid on the block has much to live up to. This song may take G Whizz’s career to places he never thought possible.
Fams House / Millionaire Inc. deserves credit for producing a world standard song. The artist vocals are clear and crisp and the beat is original. There is no limit to the success of good music and these guys are putting the bar up a notch.
His latest effort “Life” produced by TJ Records has created quite a buzz and the video was shot in Tivoli Gardens – Jamaica! TJ Records also produced the “UNFINISHED BUSINESS RIDDIM” featuring MOVADO “I’m So Special” and SERANI “No Games.”
