FEBRUARY 2014 SPOTLIGHT ARTIST – LUSION

Lusion logo

Adrian Allen also known as Lusion, is from Great River /Hopewell District, Hanover in Jamaica West Indies.  Born May 12th, 1991 Lusion’s first performance was at an engagement with his mother in a friend’s church at the age of 9 years old singing “I’m Longing for a Home”.  After this first debut people at the church and in the community wanted to hear more of Lusion’s wonderful God given talent. Thereafter Lusion continued on for 3 years accompanying his mother, a Deaconess, with performing all over the country in different churches & functions.  At the age of 12, he executed his first solo appearance at a church event singing gospel. Surprising to him, he received an overwhelming response from the audience. It was at this moment that he was given the assurance that singing was a goal he wanted to pursue.  Lusion continued on to sing solo as well as with choirs at different churches all over Jamaica. His main church choir was Open Bible based out of Hanover.

It’s rather natural that many have inquired about the origin of his name Lusion and what is the meaning behind it.  At the age of 18, a dear friend BlaydMan, who is a deejay he used to perform with, presented the name Illusion for young Adrian.  Although he was welcoming to a stage name, he informed BlaydMan that he is not an illusion, regardless of the fact that people see him for who he is not, he is real. Therefore, he decided he would drop the “IL” and be known alternately by the name Lusion.

Montego Bay is what opened the door to the opportunities for Lusion to showcase his musical talents.  In grade 9 Lusion sang Neo’s song “So Sick” at his high school and once again the audience went in frenzy, some even asking for signed autographs. After this eye opening performance, Lusion started writing his own songs.  Composed at the age of 15, Lusion achieved his first self-written gospel song entitled “In God We Put Our Trust”.

Additionally, Lusion had two self-written songs “The Way You Make Me Feel” followed by “The Streets Ain’t Safe”.  Thanks to a well-known Reggae artist by the name of Chokey Taylor, he was granted the opportunity to perform “The Streets Ain’t Safe” at the popular Ms. Hopewell Beauty Pageant in 2008. Chokey Taylor played a significant role as a mentor in Lusion’s early years and he is very grateful for having him in his life.

In 2011 he merged with Garrison Entertainment.  His first song on the label was entitled “Cry for the Poor” which was a major hit and had heavy rotation on the leading radio stations in Jamaica. With dedication, perseverance and drive Lusion along with the Garrison Entertainment family both knew their combined talents and skills can produce wonderful music. Lusion has also had the honor of working with Black Chiney from this relationship. During this connection the song “Gun Clean” was created on the World Crime Riddim produced by Black Chiney.

Lusion has been making many appearances across Jamaica performing live at various events and radio stations. In 2012 Lusion alongside Garrison Entertainment formed a family fun day event that involved giving back to the community by way of raising funds and donations for school supplies for Watford Hill Primary School in Hanover Jamaica.

While continuing to elevate his career and songwriting, Lusion’s immediate goals in 2014 are to perform in Reggae SumFest & Sting.  Additionally he wants to continue to have his music aired on major radio stations across the globe.  His long term goals are to become an internationally known artist and market himself in shows in the U.S, Canada and Europe.  Carrying out appearances in Spain’s Rotomsplash and Japan Reggae Splash are also accomplishments that he would like to achieve.
