Blazing a trail across the landscape of reggae and dancehall music, this artist is highly motivated and thus his success is inevitable. Darren Williams artistically called Kashu was born on June 13th, in a small district in Clarendon.
Kashu is among the core group of new blood to emerge on a determined mission to heal the world with music. But what set apart this ultra- talented performer are his unique delivery style, his peerless sound and distinct raspy vocals, as well as a natural, inherent flair for lyrics construction. He continually shows versatility across different subject areas, his music spanning topics from human oppression, affairs of the heart to dance-floor party themes. And even as Kashu continues to indelibly impress all who have come in contact with his music, he remains resolute that he needs no vulgarity to gain popularity.
Kashu (formerly Cashew Man) has steadily carved out a place for himself performing all over: from major concerts in his hometown of Toll Gate, Clarendon in Jamaica, to big stages across Europe, USA and the Caribbean. He has performed for thousands and has consistently elicited rave responses from every audience. A highlight of Kashu's sojourn was unveiled on May 5th, 2001, when he was named national winner of the island-wide televised "Reggae Trail" talent search. From thereon, there has been no stopping Kashu.
Outside of music, his talents extend to fashion designing, football and construction engineering. He was a DaCosta Cup star forward on his high school team at Vere Technical, where he also obtained a certificate in Construction Engineering. Music however, he knows, is his true calling, and soon the moniker Kashu will be the name on the lips of music fans everywhere.
Kashu also proved that he is multi-talented and multi-dimensional by displaying his acting ability in a Jamaican Film. He recently made a cameo appearance as "Kango" in the movie "Out the Gate" featuring Paul Campbell and Oliver Samuels. The movie was released worldwide and is creating a buzz in the streets.
In 2013, Kashu released his first studio album entitled "From Campaign to Champagne" produced by Moby's Records. The 15 track album includes the track "higher levels" which made several charts locally and globally as well as his more popular songs "Mi Amor", "Double Love", "The System", "Nutten Nah Gwaan" among others. The title track for the album "From Campaign to Champagne", tells the story of his journey through song.
To date Kashu continues his musical journey and is now managed by an international management company and recording label, Otis Riddim Records.
He currently has a plethora of tracks in their production stages soon to be released, as well as continuous promotion of his latest single “Powerful” which has been receiving much airplay while gaining more listeners to his sound and vibe. He also released "Name Yu Blessings" produced by SAB11 Music Productions. Kashu is committed to keeping it clean and positive, while remaining fresh and entertaining in this competitive industry.
