If you haven’t heard about the ‘Hand Cart Bwoy,’ you must be living in a cave on a remote, deserted island because Perfect is one of the most powerful, intriguing and refreshing voices on today’s Reggae/ Dancehall scene. Born on March 26th, Greg Rose grew up in the cool hills of Bamboo in the parish of St. Ann. His father owned several jukeboxes, giving him full exposure to the rhythms of Jamaica. He counts Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Toots Hibbert as some of his early favorites.

From as early as nine years old he was a primary school entertainer. This stardom exploded as he entered York Castle High and by the eighth grade he was a superstar, performing regularly at school concerts. After leaving high school, Rose went to Kingston to get a first-hand understanding of the music business, spending time at studios like Penthouse, King Jammys and Arrows while he fine-tuned his art. He cut his first tune as Little Ninja, before settling on his current stage name, which seemed appropriate given his perfectionism as a recording artist. Returning to St. Ann, he started appearing at dances and stage shows every chance he could, causing his popularity to soar until his name was on everyone’s lips.

Determined to break into mainstream recording, Perfect recorded a few self-produced songs. ‘Hand Cart Bwoy,’ ‘Amerimaka’ and ‘No Badda Mi’ are just a few of his hits that blazed the airwaves and are included in the 2006 release "Giddimani."

Early 2008 saw the release of Perfect’s second album, "Born Dead With Life" on Irievibrations Records. A concept album concerned with the history of slavery, the CD got extraordinary reviews and reveals a deeply personal side of the artist. Additionally, he continued to release hit singles on all the hottest rhythms making the radio and dancehall rounds in Jamaica.

A collection of singles made up Perfect’s 2009 album, Karma. With lots of popular tunes on familiar riddims, Karma was the beginning of a shift towards the alt/pop world. 2010 is the year when Perfect’s name got recognized outside of reggae circles with the multi-genre album “French Connection”, produced by Sherkhan for Tiger Records. Released in Europe through IrieVibrations, the album contains the song "Forget Everything”, which mixes bohemian hipster with a healthy dose of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Last year, Perfect teamed up with Lustre Kings Productions for his latest release "Back For The First Time" which includes an ode to Peter Tosh along with the popular slection "Hold On Buju."

A Rastafarian, Perfect’s lyrics are deep and straightforward yet unforgettably melodious, leaving you to listen over and over. Simply put, he keeps his lyrics real and unapologetically uses music as his medium for education and self-awareness. Recognized as one of the most powerful, intriguing, and refreshing voices on today's reggae and dancehall scene, this artist mashes up urban style, roots vibes, and straight up soul for a combination that is perfectly Perfect.
