The 2nd October 1976 saw the birth of Barbadian reggae singer/songwriter, Marlon “Easy.B Brathwaite who hails from the parish of Christ Church in his homeland of Barbados. This Rastafarian reggae artiste is referred by some as the Bajan Capleton as his delivery and performance is similar to his Jamaican counterpart. Easy.B ventured into the art of singing at the age of 10 while as part of his school choir at the Christ Church Boys Primary. Easy.B soon realise that music would be part of his life as his secondary school experience at Combermere School contributed to a deeper love of music. “I was known at Combermere School as the boy who knew every recent dub song and could sing them word for word, I also took my talent to my peers and teachers, as I performed at a talent contest at school.” During his first experience in a singing contest he did not make it pass the preliminary, however he realise that the genre of reggae was most appealing to him.
