    Turbulence Sheldon Campbell, AKA: Turbulence, is a prime example of the miracles that can happen in Jamaica through musical aspirations. He was born on January 11th, 1980 in the poverty-stricken area of St. Andrew, also dubbed as "Hungry Town" by it's residents. As a child Turbulence along with his mother, two brothers and one sister, often did not have enough food to go around the table. Living in a network of contcrete squatter settlements located in Kingston 8, Turbulence encountered plenty of mischief but his love for music kept him grounded. He often tested his songs on schoolmates while he attended secondary school at St. Andrew Tech. Turbulence was encouraged by many to stick with his talents. After completing his secondary edjucation he met up with Phillip "Fattist" Burrell of Exterminator records. Fattis is known for taking artist such as Luciano, Cocoa Tea, and Sizzla into his studio, and bringing them back out with chart topping singles. Turbulance began his work with Fattis and recorded his first singles "On My Way to Zion" and "Think of Peace". He became an opening act in 1999 for star deejay Sizzla after wowing an audience in Trinidad at his first ever live performance. The thousands who were there to see a show headlined by Lauryn Hill were sidetracked by Turbulance's high energy stage show. Since then Turbulance has toured with Sizzla to multiple places in Europe, the U.S, the West Indies. This year in 2006 he is planning another tour for Europe, and also plans venture to Japan.Since his first self titled album in 2000, Turbulence has released an impressive amount of albums for his fans, so many it is a bit hard to track the exact amount to date. His most recent album, Notorious, has impressed today's reggae sceen with songs like "Want a Natty" featuring Sasha and the underground anthem, "Notorious". The duet performance with Sasha on "Want a Natty" earned him a number one spot on Jamaica's charts in 2005. Aside from his musical goals and aspirations, Turbulence hopes to open a chain of community centers accross Jamaica. Within each center Turbulence plans to have his owns studios so he can more adequately harness the talents of the inner city youths. He has also built a home outside of "Hungry Town" for his mother to live but she refused to move away from her home town. Turbulance him self has still kept his new living situation close enough to his roots. -Adam Arredondo
