Chase your dream and never give up on it because you only have one life to live,” is one thing that Shawn Antoine would like to share with youths, and right now he is living his own dream – chasing music.
An up-and-coming artiste that describes his sound as neo-reggae soul, he always had a love for music. He remembered as a youngster when his mother’s friend would leave his keyboard at the house. Shawn Antoine found himself banging at the keys until it morphed into him playing actual music. It has been a love affair ever since.
Antoine has had his fair share of fun during his youth, and which young man doesn’t give a little trouble? “I would steal my parent’s vehicle out of the garage just to go joyriding through the community with friends, not to mention the competition of who can get that one hot girl in the community.”
At the age of 13 years, he wrote his first song called Only Want To Be You. This is an unreleased track, and when he reflects on it he still laughs, at how far that he has come.
