desmond / Bio

With music this strong, Ive got a feeling that 2013 could very well be desmonds year!
Chuck Dauphin - Music News Nashville ​

If the ten tracks soon to be released are like the three on his EP, you can be sure you will be getting some seriously feel-good music.

I'd like to see this one get some radio play (review of Losers Never Win)
Sound Out Review

desmond is an anti-reggae singer/songwriter. He is not a Rasta; he is a Christian. He does not wear dreadlocks. He does not smoke weed or anything else. He is not homophobic. His last name is not Marley. In fact, he is not even sure who is father is, which is why he is just desmond. He is definitely not from one of the reggae families. He has only one daughter and only one wife. He is yet to win any major awards or visit the Billboard charts. He has been living away from Jamaica for the last nine years. If there is any street cred left from all of this, he would have lost it for being a classically-trained musician.

In spite of all of this, he has sold 2,400 copies of his EP Losers Never Win which was released digitally and physically recently. There are major label reggae acts struggling to sell 2,000 CDs. He has been performing all over the United States, including the Apollo Theater in NYC which has been aired on BET/Centric. He has been getting good reviews and airplay from stations such as the Fatsa Fatsa Show, KTUH, and Indies in Motion. All of this has been done without the help of a booking agent, distributor, publicist, or record label.
