Caribbean Gospel-RnB rising star Sade Sealey releases a thought-provoking song called "Love Over Hate". Now before you think that this is one of those good over evil, feel good Gospel songs...its not. This is a progressive RnB song that boasts of melodic arrangements that compliment the dark yet hopeful introspective lyrics. In the chorus Sade asks the same question we are all ask at certain times in our lives. "What am I living for?"...Lets think about that for a sec. What is your purpose, why was you made? Sade hints to the answer in the second half of the question "...If we can't learn to love". Clearly she isn't lost, but I can hear myself ask this when watching the news or after arguing with my wife...instinctively we all know the answer is love. But, the question remains, just "why can't we learn to love?
Sade is not naive, love is something we all need to learn....and constantly do better at
There is either something in the water in Trinidad or the Gospel is truly influencing some fantastic talent to impact the music industry here in the US and worldwide. I believe its the latter, so let me introduce you to Sade Sealey, a proud Trini, backup singer for a number of artists like the global headliners “Positive, Sherwin Gardner, Nisa, J Prince” and many more. With a career spanning 8 years she definitely isn't completely new to this, however, she is deserves more attention in the forefront. Ive recently learned she initially aspired to be a scientist, meteorologist, writer and lawyer, but thank God for her start in calypso singing at just 14 year old...as you will soon hear she has definitely made the right decision!
Its certainly her time to step forward on stage and grace the mic as an authentic singer-songwriter to share her infectious grace-filled messages for the world that needs it. With a little help from countryman and mentor Sherwin Gardner and production powerhouse AudioPredators, Sade comes from a place were expectations are justifiably high...and she delivers! Check out her first release "Love and Hate" for yourself.

Bon appetite friends!
Ive neglected you, Its been almost a month since I posted a blog, my bad! Allow me to make up for it...
I have been a little overwhelmed recently. It's no excuse, but, i have been caught up setting up a new label, building a new studio, and mixing and mastering for over 30 clients all with deadlines inside the same month. Oh and Hurricane Harvey hit our city which impacted every area of my personal and professional life. Thankfully, both our home and studio is dry, but so many of our friends, family and clients weren't as fortunate.
This Friday I'm excited to announce the release of my first rock/alternative single called "BELIEVE". It will be the first song released off of John Ebdon's debut album "DAWN HUNTER". BELIEVE is our most explosive song sonically, blending classic rock elements with a lyric which points to alternative "contemporary Christian music."

Yes, the title of this blog relates to its content, and that can be fully realized if your watch the attention grabbing intro to the video "Sinful World" released today by I'm Doin Jesus label.
He did it...#4 on Billboard's Gospel Album Chart!
Humble, blessed and stuck for a few words Sherwin recants his rough journey to the top. "Its only because of God's grace Im alive and steadfast" is the understatement of the year so far. Sherwin grew up in a tiny village in Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago and when not touring round the world spreading bible-centric messages of the hope that can only be found in Jesus.
Palace gives allows for no rest as he rolls out another mixtape.
I love this dude, as his engineer, Palace has so much music planned you really have to watch this guy! When he handed his projects on a hard-drive packed and ready for me to dive into some "gloss" as he calls it, I know he was serious.
When I receive music to be mixed and mastered, I often try to imagine how the music video would be. I think all engineers do, right?
This definitely happens when I'm told that the song I'm working on is going to be the single. This song is different because I had no idea GS was creating a video for "More & More" from his 2016 monster album "Committed", let alone a short-film...
I've learnt a few interesting things about this brilliant city in the 5 years of living here; #1 job creation, #1 space exploration, #1 ethnic diversity, #1 the most fortune 500 companies and much more...
...Houston is a #1 for both international and domestic sex trafficking. International human trafficking is prevalent in Houston because this city is located near the border, has a port, an international airport, and is ethnically diverse. International women and girls are being trafficked in Houston’s massage parlors and cantinas.
When the Caribbean gospel powerhouse, Sherwin Gardner came to me, he was looking for a dynamic live album that retained each song's unique energy from each live performance and yet the energy must translate well in a album worthy format for his global audience. I found out very quickly why he is one of the hardest working international gospel artist, I can literally feel the passion for worship on every song. As a fan, I seriously couldn't say no...and dived straight in. I soon realized that these live recordings varied greatly, however, i'm grateful for the challenge because his audience loves the result.
