Silvanus; born Delroy Roberts in the Parish of St. Thomas on the Island of Jamaica. Growing up in Jamaica in the 1970's was a pivotal time in world events. As a little youth at the time it was a bit difficult to put every thing into perspective. Reggae Music and the message of the Rasta man helped to simplify things for me. With such Artists like Mighty Diamonds, Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh, Ras Michael and the sons of Negus, Culture and numerous other Artists helped to plant the seed of Music in me. I would be lying in my Bed at Nights listening to the Sound Systems pumping some tough Tunes; it was very hard to sleep. I started to visit these Dancehalls, even before my Parent's consented. I would be listening to all the top DJs of the time, Live! . Djs like Brigadier Jerry, Hugh Brown, Ranking Trevor, Nekodemus, Lone Ranger, Johnny Ringo and others. It was then I knew I would be one of them. I started to create some Lyrics my brethren Bunny Isachaar and I. We would be in School singing for our friends and they loved it. I migrated to Canada in 1979 and reside in the City of Montreal. At that time the Reggae community in Montreal was very young .Jah Cutta was one of the few Artist in Montreal doing his thing. Instantly I seethe gap and coming from Jamaica fresh, with the experience of observing the best Entertainers at work. Its there Silvanus was born. At first I was called Silverado for while until I choose the name Silvanus which means "one who loved the Forest" I was a prevalent fixture in the Dancehalls and Stage Shows around the City of Montreal then it extended to other parts of the Country aswel as the USA. In 1990, I took some time off the Music seen and went back to School. I completed High School and went on to Study Electro Mechanics and Automated Systems.
