SINGJAY Willy P is promoting his latest single All Night, produced by Hard Way Records, a company he operates with his brother Leon.

The Seaforth, St Thomas artiste says the song reflects his skill as a performer and producer.

"These new songs I am doing are bringing a fresh style and flavour to the music. I am a producer by trade and a mix engineer so we try to bring a certain sound to the songs," he said.

Willy P began recording 10 years ago in St Thomas. He is currently in the United Kingdom attending the Tech Music School where he is doing courses in music production.

He still finds time to record, and All Night is one of the songs he did while on break from his studies. Going to the UK, he says, was to expand his knowledge of music.

"I've always loved music from as early as I can remember. As a little boy I would sneak out and go to dances in the nights," he recalled.

"I remember watching a lot of deejays and singers performing and saying to myself, 'I want to be just like them when I grow up'."

The 31-year-old Willy P was born Dwane Everton Williams. He cut his musical teeth in his home parish which has a vibrant

music scene.

In 2006, he joined his brother to launch Hard Way Records. One year later, the siblings helped to start the Hard Way band.

In addition to pushing All Night, Willy P is working on a project with London-based producers Mafia & Fluxy.
