Lyndon started with music very young: beginning at the age of 5 with the violin and piano. Shortly after: he started playing the guitar which he continues to study. Through his Grenadian parentage: he was introduced to Calypso and Reggae music. Reggae music seemed to become part of him: as it carried through while playing in various Jazz and Blues bands. At the age of 16: he recorded his first single titled "-All My Lovin"- which also appears on this recent release.
"-The importance of reggae doesn’t just begin with the drum and the bass"- Lyndon feels reggae has and will forever be a revolutionary instrument that broadcasts injustices as well as a hopeful future all over the world. "-Once you get to understand the lyrics the message starts to penetrate!"-
With his music: Lyndon’s creative plan is to fuse reggae with elements from other genres. "-It’s funny what you can do with things when you just change the rhythm"-. Lyndon’s musical electiveness stems from playing with bands and jamming with musicians of every kind. His main musical influences are Bob Marley &- The Wailers: Burning Spear: Peter Tosh: Steel Pulse: Third World: Sly &- Robbie: Morgan Heritage: Carlos Santana: Stevie Ray Vaughn: Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery. Lyndon likes to keep himself open to all types of music. "-It makes creating more interesting"-.
His first album recorded at Slamm Productions in Toronto Ontario: Canada was engineered by fellow reggae artist Roger B. Lyndon feels that working with Roger B and the list of talented musicians was a great and long overdue experience. Performing is his next step and is very excited to share his music with the people.

He is extremely excited and grateful for the recognition. He was also given the honour of playing at Junofest in Calgary while he was there for the Juno Awards.
