Spotlight on Splicerr

A young man visited the studio for the first time. As he recorded alongside Dawn Penn he was nervous and he "did a lot of splicing". This led to Oral Williams being named Splicerr.

Splicerr was born in Trelawny. By the age of 5 his parents had put him on stage in church singing hymns such as of 'Jesus Loves Me' before being influenced by the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown and Freddie McGregor. He began to take the music business seriously around 1990/91.

Splicerr's first single to bust was 'Can't Test My Sound' with Dawn Penn, which did well in Europe. He is not so well known for this tune in Jamaica and his most successful single there is entitled 'This Ya Man Ya'. If Splicerr never received his musical break then he may have been a welder or a programmer.

At the time of the interview Splicerr was working on his first album, 'The First Splices'. His lyrics are self penned and he takes creativity from everyday situations, his personal life and things that he sees happening around him.

He has performed in the Caribbean and overseas in the US at SOB's nightclub in Manhattan. He was also in attendance on the Irie Jam Reggae Truck in Brooklyn, Eastern Parkway alongside Vegas, Elephant Man and Red Rat and a whole host of other performers. He hopes to reach Japan but above all he would love to visit Africa. Splicerr spices up his performances with comical outbursts between songs.

Like most Jamaican artists Splicerr has worked with a plethora of artists including Buju Banton, Beenie Man, Capleton, Freddie McGregor, Glen Washington and Sanchez. He's had music produced by Steeley & Clevie, Boot Camp, Ozone Productions, Sudden Attack Label and Mixing Lab.

Splicerr is positive about the current state of Reggae music. "I think dancehall is taking a turn for the best. It's not like one time where you just had one set of people a dominate the business now you have everybody a get involved. So I think it a open up a bit still". He listens to any sound that plays good music and he says, "Stone Love is a sound weh me love still" along with Exodus Nuclear and King Pisces".

In his spare time Splicerr spends time with his daughter, enjoys reading and listening to music.

Splicerr wants to excel in his career and to "work for the best still and try push an album to the levels beyond where a lot of Dancehall Reggae go". His philosophy in life is, "the past is history, the future is a mystery and the present is a gift. All that has been gone in the past you can't relive it, you just low that. Don't try live your life in the past. Just be focussed and know your inner self, you have to be true to you". With this attitude we're sure he will go far.
