Bfus Biography Going back to as far as his childhood years, Bfus has always been a music lover. He started playing the keyboard from the young age of eight. Prior to this, the young musical genius would usually invent his own musical instruments [wooden guitars and aluminum tin drums] which he would use to provide music for family devotions at home. Bfus was born and raised in the small island of St. Croix, Virgin Island, the largest of the 3 U.S-owned islands in the Caribbean. He is the 5th of 11 children (born to the same mother and father). In 1994, shortly after graduating from high school, he left his well-paying job and relocated to Miami, Fl. where he currently resides with his wife, Della (high school sweetheart) and his three beautiful daughters. In the summer of 1994, he joined "Derryck Douglas and The Evangelites", a newly-formed local gospel group. With Bfus on keyboards and the group's only other musician, Tony Barrett, on drums, the group went on to perform at many local churches, concerts, and other events. Thanks to his producing skills, Bfus was privilege to produce the group's first album "Jesus Say Yes" which was released in the fall of 1995. The album did great at the local level. The number one song on the album, "WHEN THE DEVIL SAYS NO, JESUS SAY YES" may be heard at churches and gospel concerts. The group got much of it's exposure in the island of Jamaica where they were featured for two consecutive years (96-97) on a number of concerts, including an all night concert in Spanish Town, Jamaica and one in Montego, Bay, Jamaica. After leaving the group in 1997, Bfus went on and produced a solo album for the group's leader, singer and songwriter, Derryck Douglass. Since then, Bfus has grown and matured into a well respected and sought after "producer", "musician", and very soon to be a "solo artist". He has produced projects for a number of artists including: Dwain Walters, Joy, Steve Burrell, Clement Derrizzio, Joan Flemings, Dez Rose, Carlington Roberts, Overton Betty, Ingrid Tracy, Anointed Men of Prophecy, Edmund Rogers and many others. He has also ministered on stage with a few known Ministers like Marvia Providence, Stitchie, Benny Hinn, Marvin Sapp, and Donald Lawrence. Although Bfus has over 22 years experience in playing and some12 or more years producing, singer and songwriter, as of recent years, can now be added to his resume. In fact, his desire to sing came immediately after he attended a workshop and sang with the choir (his first choir experience) led by Grammy-winner, singer, songwriter and producer, Donald Lawrence. It's been said that "a man's gift will make room for him" and this has proven true for Bfus. His talents and abilities have taken him internationally to as far as Nigeria, Africa where he met with well-known gospel singer and songwriter, Dr. Marvin Sapp. Bfus is getting ready to release his brand new solo-CD titled 'All Power' which is due for release in spring 2007.
