JDK Records artiste Gevano is no ordinary artiste. Although he is dimunitive in size, he is an explosive force once he hits the stage, and he has been steadily building his reputation one stage show at a time as an artiste to watch out in 2013.
Gevano is enjoying an excellent buzz with a pair of singles, the hard-hitting ‘Mi Caa Believe’, and the brilliantly penned ‘Fren Pon Face’, the latter of which has been blowing up FM radio.
On ‘Mi Caan Believe’, Gevano shows that he can deejay and sing equally well. He delivers a catchy singalong hook on the one-drop riddim, and then deejays competently on the verse, using witty metaphors and a colourful storytelling style of the grimy underbelly of the ghetto. Check this verse: Ah yute him a nine with a Tech 9/Him ah go hard, nah tek time/Life him a tek so him wi tek yours and tek mine/Wonder if dem inna competition fi mek crime/Cause everyday yu hear another juvie mek the headline.
“I feel great that people are responding well to my music because it reflects what is going on in our society,” he said.
The ‘Mi Caan Believe’ single, which was produced by Bobby Crisas for JDK Records, has been getting heavy rotation on IRIE, HITZ, and RJR since it was released a few months ago. The video is also a staple on local cable TV.
In the meantime, Gevano plans to shoot a video for ‘Fren Pon Face’ in the near future. The song which calls out fake friends has become a steady favourite on IRIE and HITZ in the last month or so.
“Right now, the selectors dem a work with 'Fren Pon Face' inna the dance. That is the most popular radio hit right now, Ron Muschette and Elise Kelly ah gimme a real strength pon this song,” Gevano said.
The singer’s longtime friend, Neil Chambers, produced songs for Gevano such as “Party Straight”, “Swing Yu Hips” and “Dark Skin Girl Remix” on Gevano’s own 2020 Vision production. Those songs won him several fans in his community, before he went mainstream.
Born Gevionnie Micheal Hyatt, he grew up in Linstead, St. Catherine. Gevano attended Rosemount All Age and Saint Catherine High where he made his mark as a performer, singing for his classmates at several school concerts. At age 16, he began to frequent local recording studios. In 2005, he started to learn how to make riddims with the assistance of his friend “Danny”, a producer at the time. He has performed at various stage shows such as Reggae Campfire, Eastlaw Talent show, I-Octane’s Different Page and Mango Fest, steadily carving out his own fan base. He also made a great appearance at the fifth staging of Nationwide 90FM "Back 2 Skool Bonanza & Health Fair" at Mannings Hill road, St. Andrew. He reveals that his music influences are “ Bounty Killer” and “Assassin” whom he admires. "Right now, the sky is the limit," he said. His bookings are handled by JDK Records.
