Turbulence, born Sheldon Campbell, grew up in the "Hungry Town"
district of Kingston, Jamaica, right next to the notorious Granspen ghetto.
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.
