Born ‘Ramone Drake’ on February 25,1987 in Linstead, St. Catherine, Jamaica, this singjay/songwriter got his musical calling at the tender age of 14. Ramone decided on a moniker that best suited his vocal style and way of putting melodies to his lyrics, hence the name Melloquence was born, a by-product of the words ‘melody’ and ‘eloquence.’
He first came to the public’s attention in 2008 when he made top ten in the Magnum Kings And Queens Of Dancehall, a live televised talent competition on Television Jamaica (Jamaica’s national tv station). Since then Melloquence has gone onto writing and recording numerous tracks including ‘Champion’, a collaborative effort with longtime friend and deejay Garrizon, which became the theme song for the Wray And Nephew’s Contender (a televised boxing show) and more recently ‘Stars R Us’ on the ‘Happy Daze Rhythm’ also ‘Go For Mine’ on the ‘Overtime Rhythm’ produced by JA Productions, both of which are doing extremely well in the radio land and in the dancehall.
Upon listening Melloquence’s music, one can easily justify how the name manifested. His music can be found on the web at these following links:
