I hear you’re working on your first album. How is the preparation going?
The long and short of it is that I have been writing a lot ,and I am basically trying to go into the studio to try and do it myself.
Locally and maybe overseas as well. With my musical flow tonight, we might just go into the studio and lay down some of what I have been working on.
To connect with your listeners, what will the album deliver?
It will be a mix of R&B with reggae and may be other things too. I do reggae-soul but essentially it’s a lot of reggae with dancehall. I love anything R&B and anything soul. The concept of CD is "M.E. on Love." So it’s basically Mario Evon talking about love.
Are you local-based?
I am local-based but I went to school in Boston so I go back and forth during the holidays, like summer and Christmas, and I am going back to New York to do some stuff probably in a few weeks.
You have pulled quite a turnout for your show here at RedBones tonight. How often do you get to give these performances?
Usually in the holidays, like summer and Christmas, but especially Christmas.
Are you really a doctor?
Yes, I am a medical doctor.
How is that working out for you?
Right now I am a musician, but I do both. In the summers I work at [the Bustamante] Children’s Hospital. And otherwise I do music.
Is your time as a member of the University Singers over?
Probably for now yeah, because I am trying to be an artiste, but I love UWI Singers.
