Perfect, the 'Hand Cart Bwoy,' is one of the most powerful, intriguing and refreshing voices on today's Reggae/ Dancehall scene. Born Greg Rose, he grew up in the cool hills of Bamboo in the parish of St. Ann. His father owned several juke-boxes, giving him full exposure to the rhythms of Jamaica. He counts Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Toots Hibbert as some of his early favorites.
From as early as nine years old he was a primary school entertainer. This stardom exploded as he entered York Castle High and by the eighth grade he was a superstar, performing regularly at school concerts. After leaving high school, Perfect went to Kingston to get a first-hand understanding of the music business, spending time at studios like Penthouse, King Jammys and Arrows while he fine-tuned his art. Returning to St. Ann, he started appearing at dances and stage shows every chance he could, causing his popularity to soar until his name was on everyone's lips.
Determined to break into mainstream recording, Perfect released Sweet and Black, an album with a blend of classical and refreshingly new, soul-reaching messages. The airwaves were blazing with the smash hits 'Hand Cart Bwoy,' 'Amerimaka' and 'No Badda Mi' from his 2006 album release Giddimani on the Tad's label in the U.S. and DHF Records in Europe. He has already been recognized with awards, placing third in IRIE FM's Big Break competition in 2003. He was making regular show appearances, and "locked up" Sumfest with a scintillating performance on Dancehall Night in 2004.
Early 2008 saw the release of Perfect's 2nd album, Born Dead with Life on Irievibra-tions Records. A concept album concerned with the history of slavery, the album has gotten extraordinary reviews and reveals a deeply personal side of the artist. Additionally, he has continued to release hit singles on all the hottest rhythms making the radio and dancehall rounds in Jamaica.
A collection of love tune singles made up Perfect's 2009 album, Karma. With lots of popular tunes on familiar riddims, Karma was the beginning of a shift towards the alt/pop world.
In 2010 Perfect released the multi-genre album French Connection, produced by Sherkhan for Tiger Records/Chalice Palace Music. Released in Europe through IrieVibra-tions once again, the album contains a hidden track that will bring the alt/pop world to Perfect's door, "Forget Everything",a single released late February 2010 by Zojak World Wide. 2011 promises to be a big year for Perfect with projects on deck with both established label Lustre Kings and upcomers Dynasty Records.
A Rastafarian, Perfect's lyrics are deep and straight forward, yet unforgettably melodious, leaving you to Listen over and over. Simply put, he keeps his lyrics real and unapologetically uses music as his medium for education and self-awareness. He has extensively toured Europe, appearing at all the major festivals as well as performing on the east coast USA at large stageshows and in 2008 made his first west coast USA tour stretching from Los Angeles to Seattle. In 2009 Perfect's schedule included a European tour alongside Fanton Mojah, a tour in France alongside Gyptian, two appearances in Amsterdam, a west coast USA tour with I-Wayne and another west coast USA tour alongside Pressure Buss Pipe. 2010 Perfect appeared for USA tours as well as multi European tours that included festivals, Reggae Camp and Ruhr Reggae Summer.
