Introducing: The inspirational Telescope to the world
Dellon A.K.A Telescope is not yet popular on the local shores but if this Canada based Guyanese continues on his quest, he will soon be known for things positive, musically.
The former Canadian military man who hails from Cottage Mahaicony migrated from Guyana at age 17. Having gained knowledge and experiences that have made him a better person, he believes that he has what it takes to inspire and motivate human being musically and in the literary arts.
He took on the name Telescope after he started the Telescope Humanity Charity, and because people believes that he has been blessed with an analytical mind that allows him to “see things from far”, as well as the righteous songs he sings, they named him the Telescope.
Already to his credit he has produced one album titled ‘LOOK AGAIN’ that features 19 tracks which are making rotations on radio stations in several countries including Canada. They include No Man's Puppet, Thanks Mama, What is the Tension, Back Stabbers and amongst others.
At present he is working on a second album titled “2013” and already some of the pre-released singles such as; Success Brings Enemy, Trust is Hard, Inauguration and When the Government hold you; have been making the rounds with favorable comments.
He fondly recalls that while he fooled around much with lyrics, he actually started singing at age 16 at the Pelican INN Disco on Hadfield Street (Georgetown Guyana). He migrated from Guyana to join his family in Canada, and joined the Canadian Military in 1999 then took singing again professionally in 2008.
But beyond his singing that seems laced with language that does not glorify violence nor berates women in anyway, he’s also a budding writer on the verge of publishing VOL. 1 of 3 of his first book call In This World but Not of This World.
He said, “After nine years in the Canadian Army where I used my spare time to write, I’m still writing to this day to the point where I have a book coming out titled In This World But Not Of This world”, so if I can do it, I know we’re all capable of doing what we put our minds to do…So just do it.
Though not a major popular artiste just yet, he has performed at several shows in Toronto but is set to visit some Caribbean countries before pursuing bookings for a European tour.
“My life’s mission is to insert a love virus within the human race that can only be cured by extreme love”. And he explains that while some might view that as bordering on crazy he said, his songs of redemption speak for themselves and can be heard at www.myspace.com/777telescope or www.telescopeent.com http://cdbaby.com/cd/telescope1
I get my musical inspiration from day to day “human interaction that comes mainly from how we handle ourselves with the situations we face”.
He adds that “With my scope, the words I choose in my songs can change the way a man looks at life, because to me, it’s like a glass of water, and just as instinct causes a thirsty person to drink, so will those who view my music as more than just a beat”.
Like all entertainers, Telescope said, I am aiming to one day hit music’s mainstream with an understanding that “I must make and be the changes that I want to see happen in this world, because at the end of the day, every child gets graded according to their work on earth”.
Humbly speaking from Telescope, he sees himself as an advisor in spiritual consciousness with words and instruments musically and said “Some call it conscious music, some say roots music, I call it sharing what I see. I've never been nominated for any awards just yet, but I believe that the people who listen to my music are my awards, which is an everyday celebration for me.
As he moves forward on his quest, he said individuals trying to get into music must understand that “Music is spiritual, not a vanity thing, so if you're not in it towards redemption, don't waste your time towards ladders with no steps”.
For those attending my voice within your space, I’m thankful to know that we’re sharing spiritual connections in togetherness with words, for it’s hard to full a cup that’s already fill and to learn is to become a child towards any education of receiving.
“With my views and scopes of life, I am too a child in learning from you the mistakes we make to find conclusion which is an open mind to my songs, because it's hard to bend an old tree”….Telescope.
