Maurice Silvera aka Antonio is an accomplished singer songwriter and producer, attracting a lot of interest in the UK and europe. Born in Jamaica in the parish of Portland. He attended Comprehensive High School in Port Antonio. Pursuing music from the age of 12, he discovered he had an artistic flare for the arts. Being easily distracted in class he was always making beats (i.e. drumming his desk and making up rhymes). Whilst entertaining his school friends, he gained appreciation for his unique style and flare, this in turn gave him the encouragement needed to perform to a wider audience. He began singing on sound systems such as Missile, Prince Ajax and Mafia five. As his musical career progressed he was discovered by the Black Lion Camp where he worked with Shocking Murray and produced his first single called "Women a you mi want". Antonio received a good response to his first single, which also prompted an austrian promoter to invite him and Shocking Murray over to Austria for a festival in 1996, where he performed with various artists such as Jungle Brother and many more. His success in Austria took him across to Germany where he worked on his 1st album which was produced by Sun Vibes. During this time he toured Holland, Switzerland and many other European countries.

Eventually his travels took him to the UK where he signed a deal with Jet Star to produced his second album (Entitled: So Many Signs) containing many singles including his number one hit single "Hero". Antonio is currently working with Top Eliments Records, on his third studio album entitled: So Amazing, this promises to be a more eclectic collection of songs, incorporating other genre's and styles, featuring hot producers like Errol Ruddock (a.k.a Spears) and hot R&B producer and singer Dr Zee (a.k.a. Zem-ri-el), and another talented producer named "Teacher". Being a true musician Antonio has expressed his desire to work with anybody, and promises that the best is yet to come.
