About BUSY SIGNAL:
Born Reanno Gordon on January 24, 1982 and raised alongside three brothers and a sister by his devoutly Christian mother in the St. Ann’s parish community of Brown’s Town. Busy’s first exposure to music, like so many Jamaican youth, was in the church. While attending services and singing hymns he realized he possessed immense vocal talent and earned his very first encore from the church congregation; when services concluded, Busy would substitute the hymnal lyrics with his own words, much to the consternation of his mother.
In his early teens Busy’s family relocated to Kingston moving between the garrison communities of Standpipe, Tivoli Gardens and Papine, volatile environments that continue to inspire his gritty lyrical depictions. As a student Busy would save his lunch money to buy cassettes of popular music, everything from Madonna and Whitney Houston to Jay Z and Eminem and he was repeatedly reprimanded for beating out riddims on his desk. At night, he often snuck out of the house to hear such preeminent sound systems as Renaissance and Bass Odyssey, fascinated by the deejays’ voices that boomed through the towering assemblage of speakers.
