Cardin was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, but was raised in mean streets of Bronx, New York. Raised in a Raggae/Dancehall family, Cardin was always very fond of watching his father sing and perform. And it was around the tender age of 5 years-old that Cardin’s love of music began to grow beyond measure. “I loved to perform and sing,” Cardin remembers. “ But that changed when I discovered how Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones worked together with music and motion pictures. I then wanted to be more of a producer like Quincy Jones instead of the performer type on stage.”
As time went on this musical hopeful stepped upon the tumultuous road of the music business performing at local talent shows around the NYC area. And it’s with Cardin’s extreme determination and musical depth that he landed a unique opportunity to join the ranks of such amazing acts like Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys and Beyonce Knowles at the longstanding and prestigious record company Columbia Records. Already solidified a star, college appeared to be a more safer route— and the age of 17 years-old, Cardin decided that a post secondary education was just as important as his desire to sing and perform on a stage.
After a number of years in corporate America, Cardin’s desire to create music began to outweigh his desire for corporate dominance. With the overwhelming feeling to get back into producing and writing material, Cardin relocated to Hollywood and began handpicking unsigned artists to collaborate with musically.
With musical influences from the 80’s baby era —- as well as such musical icons like Micheal Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Babyface and Boyz II Men — Cardin’s desire to creatively blend songs that motivate, inspire and remain relatable is a primary focus. “Telling a story, or sending a message, is big because that’s what touches people at the end of the day” Cardin boasts.
Coming into his own musically at the age of twenty-eight years-old, Cardin has applied his skill and knowledge on a bevy of musical projects — most notably his current smash “Emergency,” which is currently garnering an impressive buzz on the world wide web. And, was even featured on popular blog sites like Gyantunplugged.com’s highly sought “Dope Record Alert,” and has also been featured on BET.com.
