Brando is a young artist on the Jamaican reggae scene who slowly but surely is making his name as a culture artist to be reckoned with and whose music is starting to spread positive messages around the globe.


With his singles “Oh Jah”, “All She Need Is Love” and “Next girl” gaining popularity Brando is all set to take his career to the next level under the guidance of his management/ label Trolla Bear Records. The singer has been winning over many admirers for his rustic, reassuring vocals and his melodious delivery coupled with an ability to tell stories that the everyday person can easily relate to. “All She Need is Love” has especially hit a cord with many females who feel that the song is speaking for them like none has in a long time.

Brando was born Marlon Damion Mckoy in the old capital of Spanish Town, in the Horizon Park community where he attended the Coburn All Age School, and then he moved unto the Bog Walk Comprehensive High School. Brando’s love for music came along due to his inspiration from his uncle Winston Watson of the group Meditations, who had a major hit with “If you run down your shadow now.” On many occasions when his uncle visited the studio to do his recording, Brando accompanied him to get a taste of the studio vibes, fostering his desire to become an artist.

At the early age of thirteen his uncle’s studio visits never made his chance of his music career fruitful, however it gave him the chance of his first recording in 1996, with his song entitled “Who is going to stand up for the black man.” In spite of not making a significant breakthrough on the Jamaican music scene then, he stayed determined to continue to make good music.

In 2008, Brando signed with Trolla Bear Records and released his single “Bawling” which was produced by platinum selling bassist Dave Richards. Brando strongly states that he feels the time has come for his music to gain appreciation from music lovers around the world and for 2010 he is working on a new video as well as more good music. With live performances lined up across Jamaica w will surely see and hear much more from this talented young singer.
