Born in Kingston, Jamaica, RAS D began writing at a very early age and he has been a contributing talent for jingles used in Jamaican radio and TV advertising. He recalls music as being a part of everyday life in Jamaica; the air filled with the blast of reggae and dance hall coming from every direction. The sounds of music is everywhere and always in the air. It's a necessary food; as common as rice and peas. We must hear it everyday to sustain life in Jamaica. Song is used to express everything. From the time we are small children we learn old songs and make up new ones. Then we reach adulthood, we sing about what goes on with the people and the powers that govern them.
All original lyrics and music, RAS D prophetically delivers a message to America and to the world, promoting peace, love and health. The message is straight and forward; a mix of lyrics and music swirling with rhythm and harmony.
GIVE SOME LOVE TODAY ,' addresses social concerns of today from an anti-smoking message to a more serious reflection on 9/11. Songs include September 11 th ; Peace Call; Hail To The King; It's a dirty habit/ Cigarette Smoking; Love and Devotion to name a few. The CD also features performances by the talents of Andrew Tosh, Jr. Toots, Under-P, vocalist Regina Espinoza and the voice of Brendan Munroe, RAS D's youngest son.
The singer, songwriter's style can be described as a progression of reggae and dancehall rhythms, bridging R&B and POP music into a healthy bubbling roots soup;
It's good for the soul.
RAS D now resides in California and is available for interviews and bookings.

Puerto Rican born William Omar Landron, alias 'Don Omar' has another top-20 hit on the Reggaeton chart called 'Sexy Robotica', off his latest album 'Idon'. The Latin Grammy Award nominated rapper/singer has his career back in full swing after a few minor brushes with the law over the past few years.
In 2007 Omar was held under police custody in Santa Cruz, Bolivia after a local company sued him for canceling a concert and stealing $70,000. Omar claimed the company never issued air tickets to get there, and a local judge released him. He then flew to Buenos Aires to play another scheduled show, and immediately returned back to Santa Cruz to perform the missed concert,
In 2004 Omar were arrested in Puerto Rico and charged with drug and weapons possession, but the trial was postponed and charges were eventually dropped due to faulty evidence and witness accounts.
Omar would go on to platinum fame with his live album hit 'The Last Don', which sold over a million copies, along with selling a half-million copies of debut single 'Dale Don Dale'.
Omar also won awards for Latin Pop Album of the Year, and Latin Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year in 2005.
In 2006 his album 'King of Kings' made the highest charting debut ever in the U.S. top 10, and with the help of smash hit 'Angelito', became Reggaeton's Album of the Year.
Two of Omar's songs Los Bandoleros' and 'Conteo' were featured in the movies 'The Fast and the Furious' and 'Tokyo Drift',
His latest album 'Idon' spawned the song 'Virtual Diva', which was received well on radio as well as on MTV. The song has also become the most requested song on Latin radio stations. Don Omar will release his next album 'Idon 2.0' sometime next year,,,featuring a duo session wih fellow Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee.
