Wilburn “Squidly” Cole is a world renowned reggae musician hailing from the Trenchtown section of Kingston, Jamaica. In 1980, Squidly made his debut in the reggae music business at the young age of 13 when he played his first hit song ‘Black Black Roses’ with Barrington Levy for Channel One Studio. By age 14, Earl “Chinna” Smith arranged an audition between Squidly and famed reggae Artist, Jimmy Cliff, resulting in a world tour with Jimmy Cliff and the Oneness band to Europe and Africa.   Squidly credits his mother, Pauline Shaw and father, StrangeJah Cole for helping to shape his musical career at such an early age. 

While touring in the states he commissioned me to create some tour poster for his gigs around the US
