New York based reggae artist Jerome Davis aka 360 Degree has endured many trials and tribulations in life. However the Kingston born artist, who was born and raised in Cockburn Pen, has not one to let negative circumstances overcome him in life.


 

In 2002 his brother was shot and killed, as one can imagine this was a very hard blow for him as he and his brother were very close. Instead of letting the loss of his brother weigh him down; he used his brother’s passing as inspiration to pen several anti-gun songs such as his first single Gun Kill People.

“My brother’s death was the reason I decided to get into music, before that music was always a part of my life. I always listened to music whether I was happy or sad, when my brother died; music was one of my biggest sources of comfort. It was my brother’s death that inspired me to write Gun Kill Everyday, that song is the first song I recorded,” said 360.

Since then he has grown from strength to strength with his music career despite many ups and downs. To date 360 Degree has recorded and released a number of other singles such as Don’t Come Alone, Nuh Murder, Don’t Beat Woman and Pretty Lil’ Gal.

The deejay who hails Pappa Biggy and Ed Robinson as two of his mentors is in the process of completing his debut album which is tentatively titled Seaview.

“Right now I am working on my debut album, I am going to call it Seaview in honor of Seview Gardens, that where I grew up after my family moved from Cockburn Pen. It’s going to be a very good album, it will have a variety of songs, it’s going to have something for everyone.”

360 is currently promoting 'Mama', a new single off the album, which was done in tribute to his beloved mother who passed away last October.
