Hailing from the North coast ghettos of Jamaica, the Twinkle Brothers began singing in the school choir and playing music at an early age. As youth, the two brothers, Norman and Ralston Grant could not afford to purchase musical instruments, so they made their own out of everything from tin cans, milk cartons, garbage cans, and fishing line to make guitars and drums. After Jamaican independence from England in the early 60’s, The Twinkle Brothers began singing in National Competitions called “Pop and Mento Festivals”. After years of winning the Parish championship, the Twinkle Brothers finally made Regionals and then won first place in the Nationals championship. By the late 60’s, the Twinkle Brothers started recording, going to Kingston to audition for labels such as Coxsone, Prince Buster and Beverly’s. Their first recording was a solo by Norman called “Somebody Please Help Me”, recorded by Leslie Kong on the Beverly’s label. Today the Twinkle Brothers have produced 63 albums, plus numerous singles, live albums and videos. With so much more to come, the Twinkle Brothers have kept and will continue to keep roots reggae music alive.

A gifted singer from a family of talented musicians, Della Grant has been singing since the age of six. Her voice has become more refined and sweeter as her career continues. With the release of her seventh CD, Give Jah The Glory, she continues in her usual eloquent style. She has gained both national and international recognition for her music while touring with her husband and brother-in-law, Ralston and Norman Grant, the famed Twinkle Brothers.

Said to be one of North America's most powerful and promising reggae acts in years, Soul Majestic’s diversity in their range of fans demonstrates their ability to move the most hard-core reggae enthusiasts as well as a wider, more universal audience, and keep them dancing from start to finish. In March of 2004 Soul Majestic left California heading to Kingston, Jamaica where they recorded their new album entitled Until That Day recorded at Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studio's. While recording in Jamaica, Soul Majestic had the honor of working with legendary producers and bass and drum duo Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare as well as international reggae superstar Anthony B. Their 15-song sophomore album released on the Soul Majestic label hit stores in August 2004.
