Spawnbreezie
As a young boy, Spawnbreeziegrew up listening to his father make music. Whether rehearsing in the garage or on stage at performances. Music was justas much an influence to himas his father was. Somuch in fact that helearned to play drums and piano before entering grade school. Curious and excited about his life’s involvement with music, at 16 years of age he learned to play the guitar and eventually acquired skills of a bassist. Spawnbreeziethen realized that at a young age, music was not only a talent but a passion that now became his life. At age 17, Spawnbreezie made a commitment to his love and talent to pursue a career of music. With the combinations of island music, roots reggae, r & b, and hip-hop, Spawnbreezie has crafted a new kind of sound. Combining the percussions of hip-hop, the skank of reggae and the vocals of the Island music, he calls it, "Island Hip Hop". In 2002, Spawnbreezie and his family formed a band called, "Le Atalua Breeze Band". Being a partof the Breeze Band, he thought it was only fair to represent them wherever his music took him. At that time he was going by the stage name of “Spawn” and was in the making of his solo debut album. In 2005, Spawn began his solo career and pursued it with great leaps of faith. In transition of leaving “Le Atalua Breeze Band” to becoming a solo artist, he took the word “Breeze” with him in this new journey and introduced himself as Spawnbreezie

In 2008, Spawnbreezie released his first solo album called “Independent Soldiers". In 2009, he released his sophomore album titled “Welcome to Zion". The sound of Island hip-hop began to grow, gaining the attention of the people and radio stations across the South Pacific. It was clear at that point that Spawnbreezie had an opportunity to voice his music to a forum of listeners.

He took advantage of the forum and talked about the trials that he faced as a person and an artist. He expressed his emotions through his music and wrote about his life experiences. With the chance to voice his experiences in this industry, he released his 3rd album "Dear Billy" with the smash hit “Oh My Goodness” and YouTube hit “Don’t Let Go”with over 1 million views each. But those are just some of many fan favorites. This album has allowedSpawnbreezie to enter into new territories in his career, not only is he opening up the eyes of music lovers everywhere, but also their ears and hearts. With upcoming albums he is sure to propel this not only himself into superstardom but also bring much need attention to the whole Island reggae genre and positive music as a whole.
