“But I-Octane debut album "Crying to the Nation" isn't the average bling happy,back alley, dancehall export, nor is it watered down.....”
“I-Octane's main strength is being political without polarizing on his debut album "Crying to the Nation"”
"My work is different, I stand for positiveness and righteousness. Looking at it from their angle maybe they needed a clean, positive, vibrant, energetic individual and all those describe my character."
“Reggae's fastest rising cultural artiste, Byiome 'I-Octane' Muir, is poised to take his career to another level. The artiste boldly staked his claim on Dancehall Night at the recent Reggae Sumfest with a memorable performance and has consistently followed through since, entertaining his fans and silencing all detractors.”
"When I just started out I wasn't preeing music that deep. I just wanted to buss because when I was singing in my community people were saying I am an iron balloon, so I just wanted to buss and prove them wrong," he told the Sunday Observer. "I sang every music — party, girls, anything to get the desired response," he shared. But then, with time and inevitable maturity, came the realisation that he valued music too much to "just put anything out there". "It's just positive vibes now for me. I'm not preaching religion, just singing songs about life and keeping it real," I-Octane shared.
“Singjay I-Octane is enjoying some positive energy on his European tour which kicked off on January 25. If he needed any proof that his voice has stretched across the globe, the young singer got it when he made his first stop at Toulouse in France, then Barcelonia, Spain where he had a huge turnout of Reggae lovers who didn't seem to have a problem with the language barrier.”
