Music Video: Little JJ’s Song “This Is Bermuda”

July 19, 2015

Local musician Javoni Dowling Swan, known also by his stage name Little JJ, is continuing to work his way upward in the music business by trying his hand at everything from instruments to entertainment media, with the young artist recently releasing a music video for his song “This is Bermuda.”

The song explores everything from Bermuda favourites like Cup Match and BeachFest to island standards such as long socks and Rum Swizzle.

The artist said, “What inspired me to write ‘This is Bermuda’ was after I listened to my friend Haz the Human’s mixtape/album “Staying Local” and it gave me the idea that every artist should have a song about Bermuda, but have there own little touch to it.”

When asked what influence Bermuda has on him as an artist, Mr. Swan said, “I would say it’s a different influence; it challenges you to be different, to think outside of the box, to get noticed, because most artists don’t get noticed because there is a lot of talent on this island.”

“I envision my music taking me over to the other side of the world, performing and working on my music in order to become a better artist.”

LittleJJ’s introduction to music came in the form of learning to play the drums, an endeavor that saw him play overseas while also leading to him picking up the trombone and piano.

By the age of 14, Javoni had taken an interest in rapping. That interest, nurtured by a family member, took the young man to new places in his musical interests, eventually leading him to become a member of The Chewstick Foundation.

His involvement with Chewstick has lead to a variety of new opportunities, including the chance to perform on stage and at a series of open mic events.

Since joining Chewstick, Javoni has joined a music group called Red Army, featuring four rappers and three singers, and become part of a production team call SJS, where he has been exposed to recording music videos and documenting musical events via photography. His exposure has included being interviewed on Power 95 and having his songs played on the air.
