Based in South Florida, where he holds down a full-time job as a banqueting captain, Avenja still manages to devote his every waking moment to all things musical. He has been hard at work in the studio and recently released two singles which show his versatility as an artiste and also his musical influences.

Produced by Roots Rock International, a relatively new outfit, the songs are Yeah Yeah, a thrilling '80s style reggae/dancehall offering, and Pop Dung, which is strictly dancehall.

Yeah Yeah, which is the song being given the greater emphasis by his team, has been receiving moderate play and much positive feedback from disc jocks, fellow artistes and casual listeners. It will be officially premiered on Jamaican radio this week, and the accompanying music video has already been shot and is now in the editing stage.

According to Avenja, born Conrad Palmer, he is quite happy at the progress being made in his career, especially since he now gets to spend more time in Jamaica. He noted that he chose to do the video shoot in Jamaica, not only to authenticate the single, but also to revel in his roots, culture and heritage.

With the release of the singles and the music video, Avenja is rubbing his hands in anticipation of performing the songs live on stage. "It doesn't matter if it's a big stage, a small stage or a little thing pon the cawna, I am ready for them," he vowed.
