Born "Ramone Drake" in Linstead, St Catherine, Jamaica, This singjay/song writer got his musical calling at the tender age of fourteen. Ramone decided on a moniker that best suited his vocal style and way of putting melodies to his lyrics, hence the name was born "Melloquence" a fusion of the words melody and eloquence. He first came to the public’s attention when he made the top ten on Jamaican Television Jamaica's Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition, although disappointed by being unable to reach his full potential in the event Melloquence soon returned stronger and more determined and has since gone on to write and record numerous tracks including 'Champion' the hit theme song for the biggest reality show to hit Jamaica's tv land "Wray and Nephew Contender" . His undoubted vocal talent and writing skills have impressed both music insiders and listeners alike. Melloquence is now promoting his new promo compilation "From Then 'Til Now," all of 15 tracks. This compilation precedes his debut album which was initially set for release in summer 2011 but has been pushed back to a later date.
