My name is Gary Bennett aka Garris'n, I have been doing music since 1993 and my artist name at the time was Chino man. I grew up in Kingston most of my life in the so called Ghetto. I was born at the Kingston Jubillee Hospital and grew up at 1B Portland Road off Windward Road located in Kingston 2.
In 1984 we moved to the Kingston 7 community of hermitage and that is where I developed my skills as a Dancehall artist. One day in 1993 I made 3 songs and let my friends hear them and they encourage me and always want me to sing. At the time there was a stage show going on in Brice hill community of August town, my friends force me to go on stage and that is where it started.
I never fully try to break out big because growing up in the Garrison I was more focused on getting a job and further my Education so music was always in the background. In 1998 I manage to send my self to Evening classes and I passed 5 CXC subjects and was now eligible to enter U-Tech. I started attending U-Tech in 2001 and after doing 3 1/2 years I dropped out in 2004. Through all of my doings I always write songs and practice and went to the recording studio so I was always equip as an Artist.
In 2006 I came to the USA where I work and continue working on my music. One day I decided to go back to School so i wondered what I was going to do this time' but I could not decide. In 2009 I decide I want to do something I love and I started experimenting with Cool Edit Pro by recording myself. I finally start learning online how to mix and master then I went a ahead and start buying my Pro tools, Reason a good Microphone and a good Computer. From then my Audio Engineering skills improved, it was basically alot of trial and error.
I have released an Album and an EP with my new found skills and have work with artist via the internet to do collaborations. I am setting up myself to be a successful producer and i am looking forward to working with young talents. Look out for my Album droping this Summer thanks for the love and support.
