Blessed with a smooth, melodic voice and an impressive innate writing ability that captures a story like no other, Pressure is poised to dominate the Reggae audiences of the world. Called “Pressure” by virtue of the hard times and daily struggle we all face, Pressure is an artist dedicated to consistently delivering conscious messages to teach and unite the masses through his musical talents.
Born Delyno Brown on August 5, 1981, Pressure’s father was a member of a popular local band on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands which exposed him to music at a very young age. Pressure first rose to popularity in the Virgin Islands and in regional and national reggae circles as a member of the Star Lion Family reggae group, a group of seven young local artists. The group was in high demand and opened for established reggae artists such as Capleton, Buju Banton, Bunny Wailer and Junior Reid to name a few. After the group’s split, Pressure further developed as an artist opening as a solo act for Sizzla and Elephant Man. Soon after, he linked with the talented Dean Pond and Eno Stafford of Studio 340 and together in 2005, they produced and released Pressure’s debut album, The Pressure Is On, on the Tsuni Records label.
The debut album included hits such as “Zion Is Home,” “No Limitation,” and “Light In You. It was no surprise that Pressure’s first album gaged the attention of internationally renowned producer, Don Corleon. The synergy between the two would later birth the mega-hit “Love and Affection,” which was the first song they recorded together. “Love and Affection,” immediately took the airwaves by storm and earned a place in the pantheon of reggae classics. Following placement of the mega-single on the famed Reggae Gold compilation, the Love and Affection album was released in 2007 on Don Corleon Records.
