International Reggae artist Stevie Culture has been a singer and entertainer since his early teens. Stevie was born in Kingston Jamaica to Rastafarian parents. His Father was a guitar player and singer and his love of music certainly rubbed off on Stevie. He began playing the drums at age 12 and quickly became popular because of his musical talent and positive attitude. By age 16, Stevie became well known and would sing with leading sound systems and play and sing with bands all across the island of Jamaica. Stevie's strong spirituality and belief in those people willing to make a difference is evident in his debut album “Top Class”. He speaks of keeping life full of joy and helping the world's youth to put down guns, drop drugs and violence, and channel their energies in more life-giving directions. The album is layered with positive and uplifting messages and is widely considered an instant classic.
As well as being a lifelong singer, Stevie has also always carried with him his message. When asked what one thing he would tell his fans, he responded in a heartbeat: “Hol' a joy!”. “Don't let the problem rule your life”, he says; “Don't think of the problem. Think of the solution. Just be happy about what you're doing..”
Half Pint's diminutive stature belies not only his vocal capabilities but also camouflages his huge on-stage presence, often described as no less than explosive and dynamic. Born Lindon Roberts, but affectionately called Pint, he is a product of the West Kingston enclave of Rose Lane, a community which has produced the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Toots Hibbert and a host of other international Reggae superstars.
The all-new studio CD, No Stress Express, was released March 11, 2008 internationally and distributed though Universal Music Group. The first single and video for the CD, “Unity” featuring Jack Maness from Long Beach Dub All-Stars has been doing well on radio and video shows all over. The No Stress Express international tour in support of the new CD will start in the US in April and go through the end of the year. Big plans are in store for the one Half Pint!
