Nichelous is from Spanish Town, an area with a rich music heritage, built around sound systems and independent producers.in 1997 Nichelous Fearon left the island of Jamaica for Aruba, where he settled and worked in the tourism industry. At that point, he never officially launched a music career, until the day he heard Marcus Garvey's interview on the Mutabaruka's cutting edge on Irie Fm show.
He wasn't the only talking about black pride, but the importance of self-reliance which couldn't be more relevant today said Nichelous. "If I got the teachings of Marcus Garvey in school I could be a better man today".
This meditation is the root of his first single which is titled Rise Marcus, done in tribute to the Jamaican National Hero Marcus Mosiah Garvey. The song was produced by Inhouse Music and released on the Bonner Corner Stone music, during a visit to Jamaica in July 2012.
Nichelous has been singing since he was a little boy, growing up in Spanish town, St. Catherine. For him, music was always his main form of expression during those early days while attending YMCA school.
As time went by he got more seriously involved with music and began singing on sound systems in and around his hometown, such as Earth shaker sound and Yute Man Survival. Nichelous got his first studio experience at people's choice studio in Spanish Town, where he recorded his first dubplates for the sound system known as Earth Shaker.
However, Nichelous did not launch his career as a recording artist officially until he migrated to the Island of Aruba in the late 90's, Where he started to do his official recordings and also a number of Stage Performances.
The talented singer-songwriter who list Bod Marley, Peter Tosh, Garnet Silk, Richie Spice and Buju Banton as his main musical Influence is working assiduously to build his name worldwide. His greatest ambition is to walk in the footsteps of his musical 'idols and help preserve roots reggae music in it's purest form.
It has been 15 years since Nicholas Fearon left Jamaica for Aruba, where he has settled and worked in that country's tourism industry.
But on a visit to Jamaica in July, Fearon (as Nichelous) recorded his first song, Rise Marcus Garvey, for the Bonner Cornerstone label.
Rise Marcus Garvey is a tribute to the Pan African giant and Jamaica's first National Hero who died in 1940.
According to Nichelous, he wrote the song after listening to a Garvey feature on Mutabaruka's Cutting Edge show on Irie FM.
"He wasn't only talking about black pride, but the importance of self-reliance which couldn't be more relevant today," said Nichelous. "If I got the teachings of Marcus Garvey in school I would be a better man today."
Nichelous is from Spanish Town, an area with a rich music heritage, built around sound systems and independent producers.
Though he performed on talent shows and hung around the Earth Shaker sound system, he never officially launched a music career, leaving for Aruba where he has worked as a bartender since 1997.
Rise Marcus Garvey will also be distributed by Bonner Cornerstone.
