Mervin Budram - MD is a Belizean Gospel Artist, Worship, Soca, Reggae Minister. MD music is contemporary Caribbean, with lyrics that often speak to the education system, revealing at times the reality of youth disempowerment while serving as a plaintive call for action.
MD’s music definitely taps into the marginalized sub-culture origins of the reggae genre by discussing themes related to youth culture and self-autonomy. Yet his own spiritual leanings are evident throughout his music. His lyrics offer optimism and hope; together they blend seamlessly into the musical experience lending perfect charm and cadence to an otherwise familiar reggae beat. MD’s versatility and prowess as an artist has so far led to crossover tours in Colorado, New Mexico, Jamaica and California as well as garnered for him 2009’s award for Best Belize Carnival Song and Best Music Video 2016 by Antigua Barbuda Gospel Music Awards.
