Esco's solo career soaring to new heights


esco_profile.jpgEveryone remembers Esco from the duet Leftside and Esco. He is now pursuing a solo career and has established a new record label called 111 Productions. You seldom find artistes who write and engineer their own music, voice themself, build their own rhythms, mix for themself and yet remain quite humble. Well, Esco has been doing all this.

Esco grew up in a musical surrounding and has always been around beautiful melodies. His father was a disc jockey and Marcia Griffiths was his step mother. This is one factor which has contributed to his musical career.

Esco has been on the dancehall scene for quite a number of years and has not changed much except becoming more fierce and aggressive. "One has to be fierce and aggressive to survive in the music industry." he says. Esco has had many accomplishments in his career but his greatest has been having a number one single.

Touring is a vital part of an artiste's career. Esco has been on tour for the last couple of months and will be heading off again this summer. He has been to Italy, Japan and Ghana.

From touring to making hit songs we just can't keep up with this busy artiste. This is all in an effort to be internationally acclaimed.

Esco is currently working on his new album and creating a different showcase and packaging as a Dancehall artiste. The album can be looked at as a double album. It features both sides to his music. Reggae versus Dancehall. Ladies can also be on the lookout as Esco promises "nuff tings for the ladies".

Bounty Killer, Assassin, Baby Cham, Damion Marley and Jay Z are some of the artistes whom Esco looks up to. He also wishes to do collaborations with Vybz Kartel, Tessanne Chin, Kanye West and Timberland. The Reggae and Dancehall industry has some talented and sexy female artistes; Kris Kelly, Spice and Tessanne Chin are the ones who this talented sexy artiste would consider taking out on a date.

"40% image, 30% talent, 30% networking and 100% love." This is the advise that Esco has for all aspiring artistes.
