With June being his birth month, Causion has extra reason to celebrate with the release of ‘Mission In Progress’, his EP which will be released on the 24th, his birthday, which will be celebrated with his performance at Taste of the Caribbean Islands in Miramar, Florida.
The Antiguan singer has had his share of medical challenges in the past four years and shows gratitude to the Almighty on ‘Thank You’, one of seven songs from the project which he co-produced with longtime friend, veteran musician Maurice Gregory.
“I wrote that song at a time when there was a lot of stress going on in my life, and even though all the things seemed to be going in the opposite direction, I was still grateful for all the things my Father had given me and blessed me with,” said Causion, who is based in South Florida.
While he worked on ‘Mission In Progress’, Causion also found time to make his acting debut (as Leroy) in the movie, ‘Deep Blue’, directed and produced by the Antiguan husband-and-wife team of Howard and Mitzi Allen.
Causion has lived in the United States for many years. Strongly influenced by Jamaican reggae acts like Third World, he has recorded four albums including ‘Stella’s Kid’, his previous effort which was distributed by VP Records. On July 24th, he will share the Taste of the Caribbean Islands stage with Nadia Batson, Code Red Band, Singing Melody, Julian Believe and many others. This free event, hosted by Miramar Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis, is a fitting birthday celebration and was purely coincidental with the launch of his EP ‘Mission In Progress’ on the same date.
