Band Biography
Originally referred to as Sentimental Touch in the Jazz World, C-Sharp came together in
December 2001 with core members Aeion “Yaaka” Hoilett, Dwain “Wiya” Campbell and
Ordean “Bingy” Francis while studying music at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and
Performing Arts. All hailing from the North Coast, the group began their musical journey in the
renowned “Room 13” at the college, „jamming‟ for hours after classes. Needing to satisfy their
insatiable appetite for playing music, during the first two years of coming together, the group
played at weddings, school concerts and many other small events once the opportunity arose.
During this time guitarist Lamont “Monty” Savory joined the group and C-Sharp formed
alliances with great musical influences such as Ibo Cooper, of the famed Third World Band, that
would later on prove very influential in their becoming the renowned group they are today. In
perfecting their sound, C Sharp changed faces by welcoming Randevon “Randy” Patrick as
their new drummer, and Chevaughn Clayton with his dynamic vocal skills as lead singer and
percussionist, both bringing a solid sound to an already eclectic five-man band.
In Ten years C-Sharp boasts an impressive resume, having toured most of Europe, parts of The
United States of America and other parts of the world. In 2003 they were invited to represent
Jamaica, in Suriname, at The Caribbean Festival of the Arts (CARIFESTA). Along with
performing at CARIFESTA, the group was invited to share in Haiti‟s milestone 200th year of
Independence in early January 2004. In 2005 C-Sharp represented Jamaica and reggae music at
the Jamaican Independence Celebration held in Beijing China. Upon returning from China the
group released a single titled “No More,” the video for which spent 14 weeks on the CVM Hit
List Chart in the Top 5 position. The song got international recognition, making radio charts
from Africa to Europe and parts of the Caribbean.
The group has worked closely with phenomenal artistes such as Third World‟s Ibo Cooper,
Gospel Sweetheart‟s Robert and Jenieve Bailey, Taurus Riley, Abijah, Queen Omega,
Turbulence and was the touring band for reggae artistes Tony Rebel and Queen Ifrica. They also
worked as an opening act for Roberta Flack and Peabo Bryson at the Hilton Hotel in Kingston
Jamaica at a special Valentine Day concert. Since 2005 they have worked as the opening act for
Rita Marley and the I-Three singers in Germany, Hungary, Italy and Ghana.
C-Sharp made a presentation of some of their best tracks taken from their Debut album, titled “What A Day,” at Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest of 2005, Red Label Wine East Fest 2007 and Smile Jamaica Africa Unite 2008, showcasing a vibrant collection of sound and youthful melody. With the release of their new album „The Invitation” C-Sharp now focuses on taking a more mature sound to stages internationally. C-Sharp continues to tour and, as they build their musical reputation, a “Sentimental Touch” is left with fans worldwide.
