Verse iTal 2

Verse iTal A.K.A. Stefan Wilson comes from Trinidad and Tobago. His childhood musical influences ranged from local calypso legends like Lord Kitchener, the King of Pop Michael Jackson, all the way to dancehall icons like Buju Banton. In early 2000 he relocated to Philadelphia where he discovered hip-hop and that today is just another branch of his many musical tastes. Philadelphia would also be the place where Verse iTal would find Rastafari. After 5 years in Philadelphia, Verse returned home with music in his mind and heart. He worked as a part-timemathematics teacher and used his spare time to fine-tune his craft with the help of producers, friends and fellow artists who saw potential in the young artist. Bursting on the scene in 2008 with the songs “Nyquil” and “Jah Puzzle”, both produced by Azikiwe Kellar, Verse iTal presented himself as a fast chanting reggae artist. The combination of singing and chanting, which defines Verse’s sound today, was born in the crossover hit “BluePrint”, released in early 2010. His singjay sound can be heard also in releases like “Pon D Hillside” and the timeless “Spring Water”.

In 2013, on the heels of releasing his smash hit “Never Hurt”, produced by Germany’s Culture Rock Records, Verse iTal moved to the Netherlands where he competed on Benelux Reggae Competition in 2014 and won. This led to his performances at many big music festivals including Reggae Geel and Smile Festival. One year later the Culture Rock produced EP “Truth And Substance” was released, highlighting the artist's versatility and call for righteousness, best represented in the infectious anthem “Want No Part”.

Today the artist continues to grow and tries to keep high standards! All this can be seen in his live performances and newest releases. Verse iTal moves forward blazing a fire, always putting quality over quantity when it comes to his music. We can expect a new album from him in the year 2018!
