Rege's Roots & Rhythms

 


IRIE! I AM REGE LARK

"I BELIEVE WE ALL ARE GIVEN GIFTS...MINE HAPPENS TO BE MUSIC."

REGE'S ROOTS BEGINNINGS:
     STARTING OUT IN HIS YOUTH, HIS MOM WOULD TAKE HIM TO LOCAL FESTIVALS. WHICH HE FELT AN IMMEDIATE ATTRACTION TO MUSIC. JUST AS EVERY CHILD HAS FEELINGS PULLING THEM IN A DIRECTION.  MUSIC AWOKE THE HUNGER AND CURIOSITY DEEPLY IN HIM.  HE STARTED GOING WHERE HIS UNCLES PRACTICED.  IT IS THERE HE LEARNED HOW TO PLAY THE STEEL PAN DRUMS. BY THE TIME HE WAS IN HIS TEENS, HE HAD HONED HIS MUSICAL SKILLS ON THE STEEL PAN PLAYING RHYTHMS AND SINGING AND PLAYING  CALYPSO AND ZOUK TUNES WITH HIS FRIENDS.  THEY PERFORMED ALL OVER THE CARIBBEAN ENTERING CALYPSO COMPETITIONS OF WHICH THEY DID WIN SOME. THIS IS WHEN HE STARTED WRITING HIS OWN TUNES AND GROWING HIS SPIRITUAL CONVICTIONS WHICH IS WHEN HE MADE REGGAE THE MUSIC OF HIS CHOICE.

REGE'S ROCK & REGGAE RHYTHMS:
     REGE  BECAME A BIT OF A CELEBRITY HIMSELF AS HE HAD RECORDED TWO ALBUMS AND SEVERAL SINGLES IN HIS HOMELAND.  BUT, HIS CLAIM TO "FAME" WAS SHORT LIVED AS HE HAD TO LEAVE RATHER ABRUPTLY ON A FREIGHTER BECAUSE OF THE CONTROVERSY THAT ONE OF HIS TUNES CREATED WITH THE "THEN GOVERNMENT"  HE LANDED IN NEW YORK CITY IN THE SPRING OF 1970. SECURED HIMSELF A DAY TIME LABOR JOB AND AT NIGHT FORMED A BAND CALLED THE NEW GENERATION BAND.
      HE SIGNED UP WITH AN ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY WHO BOOKED THEM IMMEDIATELY HAVING THEM TOUR EXTENSIVELY THROUGHOUT THE NEW ENGLAND STATES, NEW YORK, BOSTON AND MANY OTHER STATES.  THEY ALSO WERE BOOKED TO GIG ON VARIOUS COLLEGE CIRCUITS INCLUDING HARVARD, M.I.T., MASSASOIT COLLEGE, U. MASS & SEVERAL OTHER COLLEGES AS WELL AS AT THE BERKSHIRES, AND THE GOVERNORS BALL AT BOSTON COMMONS. THEY ALSO WERE GIVEN THE JOBS TO OPEN FOR ALREADY KNOWN RECORDING ARTISTS  INCLUDING JIMMY CLIFF, BURNING SPEAR, PABLO MOSES, KING SONNY ADE', MUTABARUKA, TO NAME A FEW.   DURING PERFORMING & ENTERTAINING AT ALL HIS GIGS MR. LARK PROCEEDED TO EXPAND HIS LEARNING STYLE AND COMPOSING NEW TUNES AND VARIOUS NEW GENRES INCLUDING R&B, POP, RAP, AND WORLD AND AN EXTENDED STYLE OF REGGAE. 


TO DATE: REGE'S ROOTS UPDATED MUSICAL JOURNEY:
     REGE'S MUSIC HAS BEEN COMPARED TO DENNIS BROWN AND PETER TOSH.  WHICH HE TAKES AS A COMPLIMENT AND FEELS  VERY HONORED. BOTH, HE CONSIDERS GREAT ARTISTS WITH MESSAGES THEY GAVE US TO LIVE BY AND HEED. MR. LARK HAS COME TO A VERY SUCCESSFUL POINT WITH HIS 50 PLUS YEARS OF COMPOSING AND PERFORMIMG UP AND DOWN THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS AS WELL AS ALL OVER THE US. YOU WILL HEAR WITH ALL HIS COMPOSING OF THE TUNES AND ALBUMS ON THIS WEBSITE HE HAS TAUGHT HIMSELF HOW TO PLAY KEYBOARDS, GUITARS, AND ALL PERCUSSIONS FOR EACH ONE OF HIS SONGS. TEACHING HIMSELF AND REALIZING HIS TRUE LOVE AND JAH GIVEN ABILITIES TO CREATE WORDS AND MELODIES THAT RESONATE MESSAGES OF LOVE AND HOPE AND AWARENESS INSPIRES HIM TO KEEP CREATING. REGE'S WRITTEN MUSIC CONTINUES TO BRIDGE THE PAST TO THE FUTURE WITH HIS MESSAGES OF HOPE & LOVE THROUGH HIS WRITTEN TUNES.  LIFTING EACH OF US TO A NEW LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS. THANK YOU FOR COMING HERE. BLESSINGS & LOVE, REGE
