Biography

*Check out Calibe’s new music videos for electro-reggae tracks Calibe – Like A Star with Bassanova & Moradzo on Last.fm.

Imagine the meeting of dancehall/reggae with dance, pop, R&B, funk and jazz, presented with unforced, even laid back intensity, and you begin to get a sense of what Calibe brings to the musical table.

She is the result of an island upbringing in Kingston, Jamaica, saturated with such outside influences as Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder and Anita Baker. In 2002, Calibe became a finalist in Jamaica’s Caribbean Music Expo Star Search. A series of recordings followed with Jamaican and US producers including Blackout Movement, Salaam Remi and Kwame Holland.

Through an ongoing mentorship with legendary producers Sly and Robbie, she was enlisted to sing vocals for their track on Beenie Man’s Tropical Storm album. Calibe earned a spot accompanying the dancehall superstar on major tours incorporating Europe, Canada, the Caribbean and the United States.

Eventually Calibe began touring with another Caribbean crossover, Kevin Lyttle, who she has opened for in Europe and the US. “I learned a lot from the people I was touring with. By the time I moved from support vocals to opening act, I was already hungry and ready,” says Calibe.

After recording and releasing two EPs, The First Draft in 2003 and Follow Me in 2005, she left the music business to go on hiatus for a while.
