ShineHead’s Bio Carl Aiken a.k.a. "Shinehead"/ "2Face", began his artistic career circa in 1980, via the dancehall sound systems of New York, e.g., "Downbeat", "African Love", "Specialist Roots", "Papa Moke", "Sir Tommy’s", "Star Wars", "Sons Junior Sebastian", etc..where he paid dues until March of 1988 when he was signed to Elektra Records. Already coming to the majors with a name for himself, not to mention tremendous talent, charisma and statesmanship, he stayed with Elektra until January 1995. In conversing with Shinehead and watching his concert, you get the idea of an articulate, yet "Rough-n-Rugged", real-live, charming ragamuffin Peter Pan.
Shinehead’s songs and live performances are generously seasoned with high energy, humor, plain old common sense, harsh reality, socio-economic commentary, matters of the heart, positive coaching in self esteem, especially for children & adolescents, tastefully done covers, craftily done twists of familiar tunes and yes his own brilliant originals. Musically, Shinehead’s "boot camp training", as he likes to call it, stems from a solid dual foundation of Reggae and B’Boyin’, the latter of which is now known as "Hip Hop". Shinehead also raps and sings rather well, along with his fame as a DJ (chanter/toaster). His music keeps improving with his only downfall being that he is always ahead of his time; stands to reason why he penned Musical Madness.
