|VC blasted onto the reggae scene in 2000 with his debut single "By His Deeds." The song was an instant success and the name â€œVCâ€ soon became synonymous with a type of music dating back to the days of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jacob Miller with echoes of VC's contemporary roots and electric influences.
Speaking of roots, VC, born Valton Craigie, was born in England to Jamaican parents. He moved to Jamaica at age 10 and spent years dabbling in the music industry in both the United States and Jamaica before finding his niche. He always knew he wanted to be in the music business and worked as a deejay with â€œLegacyâ€ sound system in the 1980s and later at the nightclub, â€œMirage.â€ He was a sound engineer by profession and produced other artistes before eventually building up the courage to stand on the other side of the microphone.
Needless to say, VC has never looked back. The success of his hit single propelled him to perform locally on shows such as Air Jamaica Jazz & Blues, Reggae Sumfest, Rebel Salute, Bob Marley Memorial and Peter Tosh Memorial concert. The demand for him overseas has lead to tours in England, New York and Canada.
Since then VC took a hiatus to be with his newborn son and family. Still honing his craft over the years he continues to write, record and perform. He has also been busy working in the studio with such renowned musicians as Dean Frasier, Rupert Bent Jnr. and Paul Kasstik recording over 20 new tracks towards his upcoming album, including a duet with International Irish artist, Diedra Kellan.
VC is now back in full force with recently released hit singles â€œJudgment Day,â€ â€œRough Neckâ€ and â€œSweet Child of Mine (Joshua).â€ Fans can also look out for soon to be released projects with Renaissance Disco and tracks on Dig Dis, Caspa and Big Tings labels.
VC's conscious lyrics continue to give social commentary complimented by a backdrop of rich instrumentals and hard-driving beats. With his music reaching reggae lovers worldwide VC sees his role as creating music that inspires and touches people's hearts.
