RECORDING ARTIST, SINGER, SONGWRITER, MUSICIAN
Errol (Skipah) Blackwood was born in the Accompong (Maroon) Hills of Jamaica. He moved to Toronto, Canada at an early age where he learned to play the bass guitar. He played with several bands in Ontario doing a mixture of R&B, Rock and Funk. His love for music comes from a variety of sources of inspiration, from the church of his father who was a pastor, the Nyahbingi Drummers, the school music drama concert, and the jukebox playing from Country to Rhythm and Blues.
