His interest in music began at an extremely young age after joining his Primary School’s choir, where he realized music was a therapeutic medium to escape the stress of his non-existent relationship with his estranged parents. In 1999, he had his 1st experience performing in front of a crowd, which loved him, and he hasn’t turned his back on music since. He has worked with a few music groups in neighboring islands of Dominica and St. Martin, where he was a writer and lead vocalist for bands, which had the privilege of opening up for Vybz Kartel. It wasn’t long until ChantMan realized the possibilities of enhancing his musical career within, as well as outside, of the West Indies. With the blessings of fellow band members, ChantMan decided to continue his musical ventures as a solo artist. He intends to make you, the potential fans, followers, and listeners, fall in love with him and the new flavor he intends to bring to the industry.

ChantMan is influenced by many styles and genres of music such as Soul, Reggae, Hip Hop, Rock, Blues, African Soukouss & native Egyptian music, but chooses not to wear any particular genre or label over his head; he simply is: a musician. Equipped with a charming smile and easygoing personality to match, this 6’3 young talent is sure to appeal and relate to all demographics across the map on his quest of becoming “your” favorite artist.
