Biography

Kashief Lindo was born, lived, and nurtured in an environment dedicated to the creation of music. His father Willie Lindo produced and wrote some of reggaes most popular songs, for artist such as Beres Hammond, Dennis Brown, Maxi Priest to name a few. Willie took his son Kashief to the studio almost every day from his birth.

One day Willie and Beres Hammond were in the studio recording for about 12 hours, while four year old Kashief sat and watched patiently, as the two geniuses worked. On their way home the idea for one of Beres’s popular songs was born, and they played with the melody in the car until they got to their destination, they knew they had a hit, so they decided to record the song the following day, unfortunately as it often happens, neither Beres or Willie could remember the melody of the song, they tried tirelessly but could not get it, when they had all but given up they heard four year old Kashief humming the melody quite nonchalantly, at that point they realized that this young boy was someone special.

Beres Hammond insisted that Willie Lindo record Kashief, thus at the age of four, his first recording, “Live with Love”. Although Kashief is highly influenced by the great Reggae Balladeers, he grew up listening to his personal C.D. collection, which includes, R&B, Hip Hop, Latin, Country, Pop, all genres of music. His voice has been described as a cross between Stevie Wonder, Sam Cook, and Michael Jackson, all mentors of Kashief. Coincidentally Michael Jackson and Kashief are both born on the 29th of August.
