Reggae and Dancehall Artiste “Khausion” originally known as Khausion Di Ikon, was given the birth name Nicholas Cowan. He was born in Kingston 11, Jamaica in the tough inner-city community of Payne Avenue.
The young prodigy faced many obstacles in his earlier years, raised by a single mother with four siblings. It was often a struggle to find a daily meal and to attend school regularly. Despite his adversities Khausion decided that he would not become a statistic by following the life of gangs, crime and the partaking in turf wars as did the typical youth from his community. Khausion made a choice to make a difference.
Hence he fled to Linstead, St Catherine at the age of 13. There in Linstead, at the age of 15 Khausion began singing and discovered his talent and passion for music. In the years to follow he met Dwayne ‘Illis’ Walker who utilized his home studio to initiate Khausions’ recording projects. Illis became very instrumental in guiding his music career.
Khausion has gained inspiration from some of the biggest musical legends such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Sly and Robbie and Ray Charles. He mentions that those Artists were greatly influential in his style of music and the messages he conveys.
Khausion was once the road manager of the popular reggae Artiste Little Hero where he benefited with a vast amount of music industry experience. During that time Khausion continued to pursue his dream of performing on the world stage. This quest to stardom kept him focused with recording for a number of well-known producers which included Zip 103’s Disc Jock and producer ZjDymond of Fullcharge Records and US based producer JahhStone Production.
Khausions’ track entitled “Wrong Turn” on the Train Line Riddim, is creating a global buzz. “Wrong Turn” is Khausions’ response to the escalating crime rates within Jamaica and around the World. Khausion strives to use his music with songs like “Wrong Turn” and others to influence the youth to turn away from crime and violence because it leads to death and incarceration, as this is the message of the song. The Train Line Riddim, produced by OneTree Records based in Brooklyn, New York, was released on May 13, 2018 on all online digital stores. Khausion wishes to bring back the love and respect to Dancehall and Reggae music with his positive messages.
