There is now a
female progeny of a prominent performer making her mark on the
scene as an artist - Fire Pashon, the daughter of Reggae music
legend Lincoln “Sugar” Minott. Fire Pashon has a new CD out on
The Black Roots label called Flames that is currently getting a
lot of play.
Born Tamar Minott in Kingston, Pashon’s exposure to the music
world began at a tender age in the stimulating atmosphere of her
father’s fame and profile in their community. Her dad operated a
small studio from their home and also owned a sound system
called Youthman Promotion, which would play in their yard every
Thursday night. Growing up in this environment gave Pashon the
opportunity to witness artists like Junior Reid, Yami Bolo,
Tenor Saw, Tony Rebel and Garnett Silk in performance firsthand
on and off the stage.
Early exposure to
the music business and the
entertainment world helped to
nurture her talent. At age
eight, she recorded her first
single, “Reggae the Beat” with
her brothers and younger sister.
She has continued to record and
recently voiced a song on the
‘Chrome’ riddim entitled “Real
Fire Woman”. The video release for this song is getting rave
reviews and is doing well.
No stranger to the stage, Pashon has performed on major shows in
Jamaica including Sting, Reggae Sumfest, Sashi, CME, Reloaded,
East Fest and Spectrum. This high-spirited Aries attributes her
success to the influence of her father, as well as Bob Marley,
Michael Jackson, Wayne Wonder, Sister Carol and Lauren Hill.
Pashon is blazing the path for a new generation of loyal fans by
expressing uplifting themes of heartfelt unity in her music.
Pashon is coming on strong as a female artist in this time.
