Three Things To Do in Kingston 

Feel The Night Vibe

“I like to drive around at night when the road is empty and listen to music and vibe songs. It clears my mind and brings a lot of inspiration – for my writing and producing.”

Go to the Beach

“It gives me a peace of mind. Beaches near Kingston include Hellshire, Boardwalk Beach, Fort Clarence and by boat, Lime Cay.”

Discover New Artistes

“It gives me great joy to see young and emerging talents in one space just practicing and showcasing their talent and art at New Wave Mondays.”
