Gifted with soulful vocals Marvin Binns solo career dates back to 2002 when he was the back-ground vocalist for his twin brother Marlon Binns, also a gifted singer. His individual talent, however, did not go unnoticed and with much encouragement, he recorded his first track with dancehall icon Bounty Killer. The song was called, ‘Love Girls’, and many more collaborations followed including working with the Grammy-winning producers Sly and Robbie.
Marvin Binns hails from the parish of Manchester, Jamaica. His music influence, inspiration, and admiration come from watching and listening to some of the greatest singers/entertainers in music such as Stevie Wonder, Beres Hammond, Donell Jones, Carl Thomas, Bob Marley, and Garnett Silk. His preferred style of music is a combination of R&B and Reggae.
The soft-spoken, easy-going live stage performer has shared the stage with many popular Jamaican entertainers in Jamaica, the Caribbean, and the United States. One of his most memorable performances was opening for Kranium at the Amazuru in New York in 2016. The crowd in a packed Amazuru club uncertain of what he would bring to the stage went wild when he started singing. Ladies were heard screaming and even the men approved of his signature old school introductions which form part of his live performances. approval He was on tour with Kranium across the Caribbean and the U.S. he had screaming women and hardcore thugs applauding him for his rendition of the late Bitty McLeans’ all-time hit song, Walk Away From Love.
