The Big Bad Singer Da’Ville, aka Orville Thomas, the lead singer of the once renowned reggae dancehall boys group ARP (A Raw Perspective) is taken his solo career to new heights. It all began at the age of 16; Da’Ville wrote and recorded his first single under the influence of his father. “I voiced the first song for him, my first real recording”. Prior to that, the Jamaican born native had been using his natural talent singing at the St. Peter’s Clever Church choir and performing at local school functions. Da’Ville enjoyed singing so much that he knew from an early age that music would be at the forefront of his career goals. “I once thought that I would become an accountant or a manager for a large corporation, but music influenced me so much that I felt a sense of satisfaction using it as a medium to express my life experiences. In the end, my music became my greatest influence, passion and joy.”

|It is official! Mavado, dancehall’s most talked about dee-jay, has signed a multiple album deal with VP Records. His first album entitled “Gangster For Life” is set to be released this July. Production credits include, Daseca, Stephen McGregor, TJ and Famous.
Neil ‘Diamond’ Edwards, VP Records A&R, said he is eager to work with such a talent. “Mavado represents the youths in the streets, so we are going to harness his unlimited raw potential to carry him to the next level. If you look beyond certain things, you can see it and he has yet to tap into even a quarter of his talent,” Edwards said.
According to Mavado’s manager, Julian Jones-Griffiths, “VP Records is committing a lot of marketing efforts in order to promote Mavado. The album will also be accompanied with a DVD which will take a look into the ‘gangsta’ world.”
