Koolant Brown joined the Wailers soon after his cameo appearance in the HBO documentary film Made in Jamaica. A solo track, Rat Race, was getting regular airplay and things were looking up for this young Rasta artist from St. Thomas Jamaica, who'd already peformed at East Fest and several other major stage shows in Jamaica. His first recording was "Keep the Faith" produced by Morgan Heritage, who included it on their 2002 album "Morgan Heritage Family & Friends, Vol 3". By then, he'd gained valuable experience from entering national song competitions and was writing his own material, inspired by reggae's golden era.
As a youth growing up people always said, "How come you don't listen to any new artist on your radio?'" he recalls. They say I'm always listening to some Jacob Miller, Barrington Levy or Bob Marley. They were amazed I knew so many of those old songs but after I leave school I liked to go amongst bigger people and so I just naturally gravitate towards vintage music. I like how it sounds; it's the backbone of what's playing today because those old classics
will never die.
Koolant Brown spent his formative years in the Jamaica countryside. He was raised between Bath, Wilmington and High Bury Crescent, some thirty miles outside Kingston. After singing in school he was inspired by Bushman, who lived nearby. Local fame beckond but it's Koolant Brown dynamic performance with the Wailers that have reaped most acclaim to date.
Now as the years go forward, Koolant Brown continues to write and sing more and more good music he quote the sky is the limit and hard work is the key to success.
