HORACE CORN [BIOGRAPHY 2005]
at this age most youngsters accompany their elders to church. horace was one of them. - "How did you feel in church?" - "I was very Irie, you know what I mean. Is the singing part mi did like, to make a joyful noise with music and dance, mi did love that, Jah man!" Very young, his mom moved to Kingston while he was still attending school, so he had to stay with grandma and finish primary learning. Traveling to Kingston to visit family and friends so often, Horace got familiar with the Big City earlier than later. Now he was really a bird flying on two wings! His horizons got broaden knowing the streets of Kingston, the independent city, uptown and downtown. Horace joined his mother and the rest of the family in Kingston after primary school. Convinced at the time that academic drenching could be of future significance, Horace indulged himself fully as a bookworm wanting to know what is there to know that he didn't already know. He studiously went through many of titles, authors and publishers in search of academic insufficiency. Achievements, what? To achieve a Diploma in Master Radio and TV Electronics and be a high school graduate was not a delight. Only a sign of hard work and thoughts of keeping hunger away from the door in the future. -"As this was no easy life, ruff and tuff", he repeated.
"Corn Tree Production" was born. It was time to make the next move. Horace resort to his first hand experience in promoting music and artists as he had been doing back in Jamaica, where he held shows with numerous upcoming artists such as Admiral Tibet, Ronnie Twaite, Andrew Tosh (son of legendary Peter Tosh) amongst others. In England Horace Corn continued his love for the music. As an ambassador, he held shows with Johnny Osbourne, Chaka Damus, Vivian Jones, Lloyd Brown and others. "Bógie", the drummer from the group "The Specials" was very courageous and gave words of advice about music in the West Midlands, give thanks, bless, bless, raspect, much love, Spider!

Serious Vibes - Horace Corn

Admiral Tibet's refusal to compromise his integrity, spiritually and musically, has once again delivered a classic album destined to shed important light on a deserving artist. "Determination," from Humal Records, has already given early warning of its potential success with the well-received "Give Praises", "My Determination", "No Love Without Feeling", and "I Know" -- all released in the UK to great acclaim. "I must always be myself; why should I try to be someone else's?" -- a question that Tibet asks of himself in "My Determination" and one with which we have all struggled

IN AND OUT A STUDIO Horace Corn did his first recording in 1993 at "Survival Studio" in Acton. Title "Baby you've been missing me" (12 inch) written, sung and produced by the man himself on Corn Tree Productions record label. The song got plenty airplay and nice paper and magazines write ups. The top reggae singer "Sanchez" had a chart topping song called "Missing you now". This helped to boot the 12 inch single. Many radio Djs played both titles and became friends. The Cornseed grew to maturity and paved the way for other musical interludes. His second release was to be "Gunshot fe cease", a 12 inch vinyl, AA side. Here he combined with lyricist "Rebellious" (King Kojo), 1994. 1995 was a very hard working year for the artist, recording in numerous studios like "Lion Roots" (Acre lane, Brixton), "Earl Studio" and "Progressive Sound Studio" in Battersea. 1996, Horace Corn released "She is my woman", 7 inch vinyl. This song was just the kind of music for the UK- lovers rock scene. Then his voice was echoed on the air waves of radio stations all over the UK and elsewhere. Vibrantly, Horace got very busy doing guest appearances in and around London City. Not being selfish, Horace invited many upcoming artists to his studio time. Those who had hard working mentality and perseverance were allowed to come and join him. They were many yelling the password: - "Mr. Corn, big up Jah works!" Corn muttered; - "Mmm, I felt good?" He later recorded many Djs and singers. "Singing B", a very prominent singer, got a 7 inch release on Corn Tree Productions with the song "Life". 1997 saw the release of a double 12 inch vinyl, with the two chart tunes "False Prophecy" and "Do Jah Works". By now the vibe was at its peak! Corn recorded his album and it was due to be released in 1998. "The Most Corn" cd and cassette became available in record stores world wide that very same year.
