Many write for years and have their initial experience in the studio with material they have rehearsed time and time again. For Alex Monroe, Mister Blacc Sheep, this was not the case. A friend phoned saying that he needed a little reggae flavor for an album he was working on. The singer seized the opportunity. Blacc Sheep walked into the studio, penned his material on the spot, and recorded for the first time in impromptu fashion.
The music Blacc Sheep is currently working on is focused on positivity and voicing various injustices. His vibe is about “educating and enlightening” fans. This focus can probably be attributed to his upbringing. Before coming to join his mother here in the states he was raised by his spiritual grandmother in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago. There were some tough times, but through it all he held fast to the thought of a promising future. He found that in music.
He has spent most of his time since in venues doing what he loves most – performing live. The reggae-raga fusion artist has opened for the likes of Tarrus Riley, Beres Hammond, and many others. He is currently on the bill at The Horn each Tuesday night where he performs with Galaxy Band. He also gave a taste of Blacc Sheep at last weekend’s Ja-Ga Reggae Fest in Galveston when he appeared with Curt Simeon and Galaxy Band. His performance was all energy and swag as he jumped around the stage with his dreads pulled back. Blacc Sheep has an electrifying presence, giving audiences the sense of his love for the music.
