Turbulence, born Sheldon Campbell, grew up in the "Hungry Town" district of Kingston, Jamaica, right next to the notorious Granspen ghetto.  Always singing, it was not until an uncle heard him sing at a wedding that he began to take his talent more seriously. His uncle knew Xterminator producer Phillip "Fattis" Burrel and brought he two together, after that meeting, Turbulence began recording for Fattis and touring as a headliner for another Burrel prodigy, Sizzla.

Turbulence has been touring extensively the past couple of years as an opening act for Sizzla and Xterminator music, which has gained him considerable exposure. Audiences are now getting ready to see Turbulence as a feature artist. Has has released 5 albums in the last year and a half, not including the amount of 7" singles that he has recorded. He is nothing short of amazing to watch work in the studio or perform before large crowds of people. Tunes like "On my way to Zion", "Not like them and Those" and "Give her what she Wants", all voiced for producer "Fattis" Burel, gave Turbulence instant success and airplay on Jamaican radio.  

Since then he has been relentlessly putting out good music on a variety of labels including Lustre King's, whose first recording with Turbulence was the tune "Bad in the Past" on the "Credential" riddim. Turbulence "The Future", LK's premier solo album was done in 2003, released on the Jet Star label to critical acclaim. He has done combination tunes with artists such as Sizzla, LMS, Sasha, Lutan Fyah and of course his own group of talented chanters, Higher Trod. Now, at the ripe age of 23 is rapidly becoming one of the most talked about new cultural singers out of Jamaica. Has been recording in the studio since he was 18 years old and with albums out all over the world, he only gets better and better. Singing songs about love, resistance, faith, revolution, suffering, joy and most importantly the King of Kings, this young singjay is unstoppable.
