Describing his music as being positive, uplifting and inspiring yet edgy and real, Black Ice believes his inspiration comes from a higher calling.
Recent most memorable performances include one with Captain Barky on the US East Coast and in Long Beach California, an electrifying stint as he shared the stage with recording artists Junior Reid and Gyptian at Earth Strong 2012.
His anticipated double album entitled, “My Life” is scheduled for release next year and boasts songs that include potential hits “My Life,” “I Strength,” “Onward,” “Fling Dat,” “I’m So Into You,” “Rude Bwoy,” “So Good,” “Hi Senora,” “Hey Lover,” “Good Lovin,” “A Lykkle Bit,” “Magic City,” and “My King.” A new music video for “We’re Lovers” debuted on local and international television stations and promises to be a trendsetting, lovers anthem!
“We’re Lovers” is a sexy, soulful duet with Jamaican songstress Sophia Brown. Not to be out done, Black Ice partnership with Kendall Curlett, “I’ll Be Home for the Holidays,” simply is a classic Reggae Christmas song.
A music video for the song “Black Woman” and a featured live performance in the movie Journey to Lasta (2002) were also notable achievements that year.
Black Ice was born in Jamaica to parents Lillian Albertha Chambers and Irvin Anthony Palmer and grew up in the small Jamaican community of Battersea, St. Ann on Jamaica’s north coast.
While still very young his family migrated to the United States to Hillside, New Jersey. His education was of primary importance and attended Walter O. Krumbiegel Middle School (Hillside New Jersey) and Hillside High. He then joined the US Navy for four years before attending Long Beach City College and then Long Beach State University where he studied Engineering.
Growing up he loved listening to music, all genres, but there were a few musicians who had a great influence on him. The late musical legends Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh and Marvin Gaye are among those who helped inspire him towards a career in music.
