Medician shines with 'Green Card'
In the mind of an immigrant, a green card is an amazing and powerful instrument that promises financial and social opportunity and a chance at a shiny new life for millions.
Medician has been able to capture this emotion with his latest single, Green Card, a well-written gem of a song that sums up the frustrations and dreams of a large portion of the Jamaican population. The song was released over a month ago, and is enjoying favourable airplay on local stations.
"The song is based on my real observations, I see a lot of my friends get visa the same time. I love the feedback because of the heavy rotation on several radio stations," Medician, born Everol Campbell, said.
The single is available on YouTube, and will soon hit all major download platforms.
The artiste, born to Elma and Henry Campbell, was raised in a small community called Bamboo Ridge in Bartons, St Catherine. He attended Bartons Primary School where he was engaged in the performing arts by his teacher, who encouraged him to write his own lyrics. He went on to became a lead singer of the choir.
He then attended Tacius Golding High School where his love for music only grew; he would leave school to go to recording studios such as King Jammy's in Waterhouse.
Medician first tasted success with Taxi Driver, which was produced by Audiotraxx Productions in Old Harbour, St Catherine.
