    Never Ignoring the Original Truth

    Delee started out on his musical journey in Grenada at the age of ten as a mouth organ player in a scratch band with a box bass, a scratcher, and a milk pan player. From this rudimentary beginning, he moved on to Harmony Brass as a drummer/vocalist. By 1979 he had co-written the 1979 Grenada Road March song, “Stand up Grenada”. Two years later he joined the Grenada police Band where he expanded his repertoire of musical skills to include those of a second trumpeter.

    With this background in place, Delee set out for Canada in 1986 to broaden his musical horizons and played with the bands Import and the Relatives as a drummer/vocalist. Also, he has performed with Baron, Calypso Rose, Red Plastic Bag, and Ajamu, among other outstanding artists. He has continued to hone his composing, arranging and engineering skills and produces mostly original music from his Delmatt Studio in Ontario.

His 2007 release titled “Party Lover” is still a much-requested song at his several performances to large audiences in the USA, Grenada, and Canada.

    In 2009 he received the award for best Calypso/Soca album for RUSH HOUR at the Canadian Reggae Music Awards in Toronto. In the last two years he has thrilled the soca scene with two singles: “Weave On” and “Something Sticking Me”. This 2013 CD titled MORE FETE again shows the adept musical craftsmanship of Mathew “Delee” John.

    Male & Female Consanguinity After the MeToo Movement

    It was only a decade ago when I caught heat from writing about men going their own way. I even suggested that the MeToo Movement is a trojan horse.
