Sometimes you need a helping hand with the creative process. Be it lyrics, arrangement, production or other expertise.
Sometimes the sum of the individual parts achieve something greater. This is the great challenge of creating music. The following are a source of inspiration.
Miss Tun Pickney is one of five Miss Tun Pickney. Life surrounded by music, Rock Steady, Ska and Reggae led the brothers to create a band called the Instigators with some friends. After the band broke up two of the brothers went on to be successful musicians and producers winning awards and creating numerous hits in the UK reggae scene. The pull of the music industry being too strong the other brothers decided it was now time for a new venture. Hence Miss Tun Pickney was born with a mission to produce new reggae, no covers, no re-releases of classic 'riddims'. Channelling years of experience into reggae productions with a twist. Miss Tun Pickney writes and produces the songs.
Two major influences are Bob Marley and Sly & Robbie. The former took reggae to the next level and is still the standard measure. The blend of great music, lyrics and staying true to beliefs left its mark and at the same time showed reggae had no boundaries. What Sly & Robbie produced was greater than the individual parts especially their work with Black Uhuru. This was an early lesson, find and produce your own sound and through collaboration you can create and achieve more.
Miss Tun Pickney plans to continue producing new reggae collaborating with new and established vocalists. Always on the lookout for new twists and turns but foundations drawn from the reggae greats.
