Claydon Ferris Peter Roache known by the moniker Dymez is no ordinary young man, but
presumably that is exactly how these types of things usually begin. He was born with a passion
for music that no one would ever know existed until the age of ten. A shy adolescent growing
into confidence, his held captive creative expression began to unleash. A budding artistic jack of
all trades as he is normally referred to, was born to parents Ferosa and Cleotus Roache in 1990
on June 22 and resides in the village of Calder Ridge.
Being born in this tiny yet beautiful Caribbean island of St. Vincent is not exactly one where
opportunities for young artistes come knocking at your door. Opportunities for growth and
achievement in the music industry as a new artiste have to be sought out; essentially you have to
want it bad enough. Dymez used experiences and avenues such as talent searches, singing
competitions, local shows and collaborative efforts to not only network with others in the music
field, but to grow and make his dreams a reality. There is a quote from Paulo Coelho’s book ‘The
Alchemist’ which says “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to
achieve it.” Wanting it bad enough was half the step and when things started to align; everything
began falling into place and now Dymez wears many hats from artiste to graphic designer, song
writer and studio manager just to name a few.
Dymez chooses to take his work seriously, and many have testified that he would continuously
listen to beats for hours just to get the right feeling and vibe for the music and lyrics to merge
into the ideal combination. In this industry, motivation and inspiration is just as important as the
God given talent. He drew his inspiration from artistes like Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Icon and
Assassin just to name a few. Through these inspirations you can see and feel the Dub/Reggae
fusion coming out from his own melodies and delivery.
Creating a name for himself in the music industry would prove to be difficult, but as his love and
appreciation for the music runs as deep as a well, he will continue to grow in it successfully. In
an effort to grow in experience he has worked with the following: MXG of Island Shak
Entertainment, D Fresh of Megga Watts Production , Alex Barnwell of Kubiyashi Production,
Lester Iroha of 4th Dimension Production, daPixel of Island Shak Entertainment, each of which
are other booming artistes and producers within St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Dymez is currently also a prominent member of Island Shak Entertainment and also ½ of the
