formila_one_bio_reggae_jamaican.jpgGavin Orlando Kerr aka Formula One Nationality Jamaican born June 22, 1983,raise in Kingston 5 Rousseau Road. I began my musical journey when I was three years old, singing at church. I had to go to Sunday school every week where I was one of the lead singers on the junior choir and was a member in a next major group called the Rosary, eventually I was the only male vocalist.

Music professionally started for me at age 17. In the year 2001 I recorded my first song {Can't Forget} which was done at Joe Gibbs Recording Studio on the Fire Fire rhythm that was made by Bassie but was not released. Being around some great musicians made me learn what I was getting into, learning the business side of the music as well as the physical, l moved on to other studios such as Fams House ,Sugar Minot, Uprising records and many other where I got special grooming mostly at Fams House. My musical inspiration came from artists such as Wayne Wonder, Pinchers and Buju Banton and many more.

In the year 2005 I met a Andre aka Drezion, got the privilege to record a couple songs such as {The Ways, Living In The Streets, I recorded some more for different producers, in 2007 I was in the tap ten of Kingston's semifinalist in the Tastee Talent Trail, from there I had gain a lot of exposure, did Magnum Kings and Queens and Raising Stars in 2008 . Things began to pick up in 2009 as myself and Drezion built a studio for our self-called Tenament Yard Records. We got a lot of work done ,one of the major thing was to hear that a song of mine entitled Take Me Away was doing good in Africa, that brought a good feeling to know that the work being done. Unfortunately the studio had to be pulled down everyone was taking a different path. In 2010 I found myself being introduce to some producers named Dam Rude, recorded my first song for them called Yu Can Be. Eventually I had a next chance to work with Fams House once more, where G Whizz, Marlon Brown and I co-written a song called Tomorrow which is doing very well all over.

Currently I'm doing a lot of writing for other artists and myself where I'm looking forward to bigger and better achievements in years to comeā€¦
