Everton Blender


Along with his smooth, crooning, tenor vocals, up-tempo arrangements, and spiritually uplifting themes, Everton Blender (created Everton Dennis Williams) is among the top performers of Jamaica’s dancehall tradition. Furthermore to getting the exclusive Chicago Martins International honor, Blender received South Florida Reggae/Soca honours as “most improved entertainer” in 1996 and 1997. Based on the St. Louis Dispatch, Blender “evokes remembrances of traditional reggae performers of days gone by.” Rootsworld added “Blender’s tone of voice is an agreeable, expressive purr, missing sure-footedly through and around melodies, backed by assorted, bouncy, instrumentation rooted in personal flourishing reggae bass, held light by energetic percussion and shiny history vocals.” Blender’s musical profession premiered when he got into an amateur competition on the Bohemia Membership, singing Dennis Dark brown songs beneath the name “Babbaru.” Earning the competition on his second attempt, he started appearing over the Destiny AUDIO SYSTEM. Although he released many singles, including “Where Is normally Like” in 1979 and “Baba Dark Sheep” in 1985, his failing to achieve industrial success still left him disappointed and disillusioned. For pretty much ten years, he continued to be withdrawn from music. Blender resumed his profession in 1995 when Garnett Silk, a previous co-worker on the Destiny AUDIO SYSTEM, presented him to record manufacturer Richard Bell. Bell was therefore impressed by Blender’s vocalizing that he agreed upon him to record for his label, Superstar Trail. One of is own initial singles for the label, “We No Jus’ a Arrive,” became popular. Blender was similarly successful in Britain where his initial record, Lift Up YOUR MIND, reached number 4 on the Dark Echo music graph. The title monitor was eventually nominated for the Jamaican Music award. Blender’s record, Rootsman Credential, released in 1999, included the strike tune, “Ghetto People Sing.” The 14 singles that he documented after his debut record were compiled over the album, A bit of da Blender: The Singles, released in 1996.
