Sun Shade just released his new single, a cover of the eighties R&B classic "Two Occassions" which you can listen to here.

When asked, ‘What’s your ultimate goal?’, Sun Shade’s answer is “To perform music every waking moment of my life, and break all barriers with the power of music”. Sun Shade is on a musical journey to become one of the most prolific vocalist that society has to offer today. Born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Sun Shade started his professional singing career during high school. He preformed at local festivals, which enabled him to hone in on his unique and distinct vocal style.

Sun Shade has been highly influenced by the likes of Sanchez, Maxi Priest, Dennis Brown, Phil Collins, Alton Ellis, and has shared the stage with the likes of Beenie Man, Baby Cham, Wayne Wonder, Mr. Vegas, Terror Fabulous and Jr. Reid just to name a few. He has vocalized many of these artist, and now hopes to emerge as his own unique artist by preforming his original songs. With his dedicated heart and determination, Sun Shade moved to the United States in hopes of breaking through internationally and setting forth new standards in Reggae music.

Sun Shade’s arrival to the United States has propelled his musical career to another level. He has marketed singles such as "Jah Love," "Honey," "Forever Love" and a remake of Robert Craig’s “Smoking Gun”. Within the first few years, he went on a Midwest tour with Luciano, Sizzla, Mavado, Leroy Sibbles, Gregory Isaacs, Sanchez, and Mikey General covering cities such as Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Chicago. Sun Shade has continued this progressive movement into the musical field by constantly performing at many different venues. Ringing in the Millennium, Sun Shade toured to South Carolina, Florida and Jamaica.

In the summer of 2018 Sun Shade released his EP entitled Don’t You Be, a collaboration project between Sun Shade and indie record company DubbStarr, distributed by Tuff Gong International. Sun Shade started his own label, Jeanne Music in 2019, and was active on stage and in the studio. He was featured on the Tuff Gong internationally distributed label showcase at the famous Dub Club in Los Angeles last October. Look out for much more from the artiste including a new album and concerts in the mix for 2021 when the global pandemic breaks.
