At a youg age music became his first love and at the time, was only interested in just playing it. As he got older he realized he enjoyed singing just as much.
"The Children of Light", "Zamar", an d"Blake Band' were the names of thelocal groups he led and was a part of. 2nd Chance has been blesses with the opportunity to perform in places such as Puerto Rico, Canada, Cayman Islands, and arou d the United States. He has shared staes with other artists such as ShellyThunder, Tye Tribbett, Peninsilyn, Mikey Spice, Chevelle Franklin, Papa San, DJ Nicholas, Alvin Slaughter, Pettidee, Cece Winans and many others.
He recorded his first album entitled "Mission Fi Gpd" in 1998 as part of the group the "Blake Band". His first sophmore album "Hold On", was birthed in 2004 after coming through some major obstacles in life, thus changing his name to 2nd Chance, where is lifeis now a testimony of what God can do.
In January 2007, 2nd Chance met GeeJam's Music Engineer (www.GeeJamsStudios.com) and Producer Dale Virgo (aka Dr.Dizzle) whom he developed a personal chemistry with, which brought about a challenge he had never yet taken up before in his life, i.e. completing an album in the period of 2 weeks. This album is entitled "Walk Gud". Here, the new affiiation and link brought about a major change in 2nd Chance's musical sound and Dr.Dizzle, brought out that new sound out of Second Chance. A few months later, it was deja vu, Second Chance to play keyboards an dbass on this fourth album entitled '"Heavenly Highway" which features artistes like Dahlia Ashley & Duraine Ashley. Heavenly Highway is a compilation of songs taken directly from the Heavenly Highway hymnal which brings out more worshipful and singing side of Second Chance. In 2009 2nd Chance went inot his very own studio to produce his 5th album entitled May Pen Medley. The self titled track was inspired by his mother who always enjoyd listening to traditional gospel island music. This prticular project is different because of thelive instrumentation used on all the tracks. The MayPen song gain unexpected popularity both locally and nationality. It was the #1 playing song on WICP Vision Gospel 104.7 FM (ww.visiongospelfm.com) in South Florida.
Just A Little While is the 6th project and the second album produced out of Walk Gud Studios by 2nd Chance, bringing in a more contemoporary Christian music experience.
He continuesto develop his music artistry in his 7th album entitled "Blessings". This project is a testament to God's abiding Grace. As the title declares, we are reminded that God continues to give things )Pss 84.11) from the self titled track down to 2nd Chances's spin on Beres Hammond's "FallingIn Love"
WalGud Studios latest album, I Cry To Jesus is a variety of music styles including Worship, Kompa and Traditional. A little something for everyone.
