"Listen the DJ song, Get it Right and Don't get it wrong". Sounds familiar? If so, then you've probably heard one of the DJ's songs or maybe you've heard someone else with this catchy phrase. Every DJ has a signature ID and for Kirk Andrew Mitchell, known to his family, friends and fans as Glamaton, is no exception.
In his birthplace of St.Elizabeth, Jamaica, Kirk discovered his talent at the age of 10, being inspired by the likes of Bob Marley, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. From Primary School to St.Elizabeth Junior High- in or out of school- if music was involved Kirk was in it. Kirk says he was "kinda cute" in junior high so the girls called him "Glamour Boy". The line up for school concerts were never complete without Kirk-if he was sick or absent, concerts would be postponed until his return. Talk about "star appeal", he was the "vibes man", dancer and entertainer! As his popularity grew the boys decides it was time to put a twist on his name and so Glamaton came of age.
Taking a break in 1996- returning with a style and technique which he had developed even in his absence from the entertainment scene- Glamaton released his first single "Love Again" in 2006 followed by "Wrong Inna JA". Then came the 2008 recording "Jamaica Island is Fun" and in 2009 "Fi De Gal Dem". With increasing airplay and exposure in Cayman & Jamaica (IRIE FM, Radio, Cayman, VIBE FM, Hot 104), Glamaton has performed at some of Jamaica's biggest stage shows including Sting, GT Extravaganza and Reggae Fever. In Grand Cayman he opened for artist such as Morgan Heritage, his idols Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. Now he has his sights set on making it to the charts, Reggae Sumfest and the international stage.
