With much of today's music being produced using a factory style of production and promotion, the current trends in the main stream music industry appear to be similar to those that govern the fast food industry.
Much of what consumers/listeners are fed has not been wholesome or nourishing and with the uniformity and similarity that proliferates in the music market, many true music fans have been left wanting a more rich sonic experience; a more organic, sincere and authentic approach to the art of making music.
Cayman Islands Reggae/Jazz Musician Stuart Wilson has been turning this paradigm on its head.
The artist, who is also a well recognized guitarist, song writer, entrepreneur, Record Label Executive and Journalist, as well as a philanthropist has been investing his own money in creating some of the richest and most progressive music that can be heard today.
He works with Grammy Winning producers, has toured Thailand and Asia, played Reggae Sumfest and now has one of the number one songs in Jamaica and the Caribbean, all in the space of two years.
