Biography

Artist Name: Septimus
Birth Name: Huntley Septimus
Birth Place and Date: St. Andrew, Jamaica, W.I.
Official Bio
Back in 1995, a humble Jamaican chef arrived on the shores of Bermuda, a small island in the mid Atlantic. His name was Huntley Septimus. It was a work visa (as a culinary expert in Jamaican cuisine) that brought this Yardee from Jamdown (Jamaica) to this very different island. However, Septimus had a far greater vision than just being the head chef of a popular Jamaican Restaurant. God placed songs in his heart that could not be silenced. Cooking may have been his job, but music was his calling.

Born Huntley Septimus, he was raised in a large family with six other siblings. At a young age, he took the rebel route and became heavily involved in guns, drugs and the violent dancehall culture of Jamaica. But in his youthfulness he also realized his passion for music and his talents as a DJ.

“After all, I was singing from since I know myself” said Huntley. Growing up in his home parish of St. Andrew Jamaica, his singing ability did not go unnoticed.

By the age of 9 he was already performing on stage under the name “Likkle D” on massive sound systems like Kilamanjaro and Black Scorpio. Likkle D’s talent flourished before Jamaican crowds while sharing the limelight with legendary artists such as Yellow Man.

In 1985 Septimus was converted and gave his life to the Lord and began the major transformation from the being a rude boy in Jamaica, to a voice of inspiration and hope to Bermuda and the rest of the world.
