Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago and based in Brooklyn, New York, Jason “GBMNutron” Carter is a triple threat who has been igniting the Caribbean music scene for years now, first as an acclaimed producer and talented songwriter, and now as an electrifying artist.
Under the GBM Productions imprint, helmed by Kenwyn “GB” Holder and GBMNutron, the studio has been responsible for some of the biggest hits in and out of the Caribbean, with GBMNutron composing the lead single for Pitbull’s Mr. Worldwide album, “Alright” – a remix of GBM Productions’breakout hit, “Ramajay” by Machel Montano.
GBMNutron has also produced numerous soca blockbusters that have topped charts and playlists, including Destra Garcia’s “Just A Little Bit” and “Dip And Ride” (Set Good Riddim), Shal Marshall’s “Motivation” and “Party,” and his own monster jam “Scene,” just to name a few.
With his flawless transition into an artist, GBMNutron has been touring throughout North America and the Caribbean, earning the hearts of fans with his energetic and captivating live performances.
Calypso: The Unsung Legacy debuted at number eight on the iTunes US Reggae Top Albums chart, and received coveted features on the iTunes US homepage, the iTunes US Reggae section with a top banner and as the first album featured in its New Music section. The release is also the first album featured on Apple Music’s Reggae section, during its week of release.
“I feel completely humbled to have such great support for my debut album, from within the industry and all the fans,” says GBMNutron.“Thank you to all the people who made it possible to put this project together, as well as to all the fans for the encouragement and positive words they’ve shared about this project and seeing it come to completion.”
