“They sometimes come when I least expect, but when they do; it’s from my most intimate thoughts about life to the paper and then to the sound waves”.
Errol Brice was born on the Caribbean island of St. Eustatius, also known as Statia, he was influenced by various kinds of music. Gospel played a major role in his upbringing. Although he comes from a very spiritual family he also listened to so called ‘worldly’ music. He learned to play on the “old Cherry Tree piano” and tried to copy the rhythms he heard on the radio. After years of experimenting with Caribbean dance music, he gravitated back to his spiritual roots in the form of reggae music, as he could better identify with the positive message.
Brice’s first digital release ‘Put on your crown’ incorporates many styles within the reggae genre. The messages are of those meant to uplift and awaken the subconscious mind.
Mid 2012, Errol Brice teamed up with Dutch reggae artist/ producer Luis Sint. Jago, to record five songs that would launch his debut as a solo artist. Live performances are scheduled beginning of the summer of 2013.
Errol Brice began his reggae music career in the mid 1990’s playing the keyboards for the legendary band “New born Creation”. The band’ break up in 2004 gave birth to a new reggae band called Fourth Angel. Errol Brice found himself at the forefront of the creative process, writing and composing the music. Fourth Angel enjoyed limited success with their collaboration album featuring reggae artist “Strawl’. On the Fourth Angel & Strawl album (Jah Throne), Errol Brice contributed 4 songs from his creative arsenal singing lead vocals on at least three of them. As more of fourth angels ‘members repatriated to the islands, Errol Brice focused on building his own recording facilities to record his music and played the keyboards for local bands.
“Kings and Queens in my eyes, so take off your disguise”;
These words embody a misson to encourage and uplift the minds of those who find solace through music. “Put on your crown” is the first of a series of short digital albums to be released on a regular basis. The aim is to perform these songs as honest and uplifting as possible.
“Tell someone about it
Don’t keep this to yourself
Go up hill and shout it
Pass it on to someone else”
