Eon Smit is a man distracted by his thoughts, confused by his ominous economic future, lead astray by a fleeting self-identity, and misguided by society’s proverbial norms. Eon’s carefree charismatic adolescent quality of life is being threatened everyday. The fact that he is constantly misunderstood only adds to the authenticity in his music. To learn more about this man you have to shake his family tree.
Eon was born to reggae sensation Garnet Damion Smith aka Garnett Silk on the island of Jamaica. Silk whose burgeoning career was cut tragically short, brewed a powerful movement in the early 90's within the reggae fraternity and is still revered in the Rastafarian community. Eon and his family moved to the north coast of Jamaica shortly after his father’s suspicious death. He spent the rest of his childhood in Ocho Rios, where he first discovered hip-hop through one of his icons, Tupac Shakur. Shortly after, he witnessed a live freestyle battle while attending York Castle High School, inspiring him to write his own rhymes. Eon left York and moved to Manchester to finish high school. It is here that he met Cill Awesumore, and the two formed the rap collective Blu Roc.
Similar to his father, Eon easily becomes consumed by his songwriting; Eon has mastered the art of writing about what is important to him. Creativity and innovation runs in his blood stream, he just simply interacts with the world differently than others, and breathes to disclose its poetry. After being rejected by the reggae industry years ago and losing his mentor Michael 'Mighty Mike' Jones he has never been more certain that he is getting closer to spreading his message. He has a new team representing him and a clearer and more distinct vision. Today, he still resides in Jamaica, while often visiting New York, striving to keep his father’s spirit and legacy alive through his own music
