Junior was born in St Andrew, Jamaica. At the age of 15 he came to England to join his mother, within a year of arriving he set up a sound system known as " Sir Lord Junior ", continuing in this field for approximately 10 years. Due to family commitments he discontinued the sound system, but as a lover of music he immediately moved sideways to becoming a DJ with another sound system known as " Sir Jesus". Junior later joined Zabandis, a six piece band which he was the lead vocalist.

Throughout their career, they toured and supported artists such as the legendary John Holt, Dillinger, Delroy Washington, Sidney Roger and Louisa Marks. Zabandis performed all over the UK in venues such as the Hammersmith Palais.

Junior later joined the S.U.S band. During his time with the S.U.S band, they had worked with Judy Boucher and also performing at the Royal festival Hall charity event show for the miners. Their success brought them numerous support slots on tours, including providing the backing for reggae artist Lee "Scratch "Perry. Junior joined the Blackstones in 2002, in time for the Black Heroes reunion at the Palace Pavilion.
