Early lifeEdit

Krishane was born in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica then later moved to Manchester where he was raised in the countryside town of Christiana in Jamaica and is the son of veteran reggae star Barrington Levy.[1] Beginning his writing career as an intensely shy six year-old, it was a reluctant Krishane who was persuaded to join the school choir at the age of 11. Dubbed the ‘melodic bird’ by his music teacher, he was approached to join The Teardrops, a boy band made up of talented singers from the choir. The five- piece enjoyed some local success in Jamaica during their early teens, but when Krishane turned 16, he decided he needed to be a solo artist. After graduating from high school with first class honours, eventually Krishane was introduced to the production and publishing company, 1 2 One Entertainment, based in the UK. From there he was introduced to record selling producers and writers to help fine tune and develop his musical craft.
