Humble was in the third grade he was asked to complete a mandatory musical aptitude test. Soon after he was called into the principal's office and told he scored the highest on the test in the entire public school system in Toronto. The aptitude test indicated the talents Humble, born Simon Vassell, possessed at a young age.

Now this young recording artist is on the cusp of a successful music career. The group home councilor by day doubles as a reggae musician unique in sound, voice and message. He has a single plan - to help people and he believes music is the tool he will use to accomplish this. "To touch people - that is my ultimate goal," says Humble, whose artist names suits his shy, quiet demeanor. "[I want] to write songs which will cause people; for even just a minute, to reflect on their life." A man of his word, Humble's debut album is chalk full of inspirational and uplifting songs. He sings "The wait is over, time to dry your eyes / we're gonna make it over, to the other side," on one of his personal favourites and the album opener, "The Other Side". Then seamlessly he transitions into equally moving tracks "Jah Has a Plan", "The Lion Has Prevailed" and "Forward Jah Children". Later comes the album's title track "Hard to See". "[The track] "Hard to See" explains the whole album," says Humble. "Sometimes it's hard to see our culture. Sometimes people are blinded by a lot of things. Sometimes it's hard to see who you are as a person; you end up spending half your life doing something you didn't want to." "Jah has a plan for us all / no need to worry, nothing to worry bout " - "Jah Has a Plan", Hard to See, Humble's Debut Album Where Humble himself is concerned, the plan laid out for him may have been obvious to those closest to him from the time he was three years old.

Born in Redditch, England, by the time he was a toddler he had already fallen in love with music, learning the words to "Tears On My Pillow" by Johnny Nash. He remembers people in Redditch and St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, where he later moved, would gather around him to listen to him sing the '70s hit. With a strong voice, message and mantra Humble progresses on his journey to inflicting change, hope and inspiration. Signing off his album's thanks and praises he writes, "To the youth dem in the system, show Babylon knowledge and seek righteousness. To the youth dem in the struggle, seek Rastafari, plant that seed in your heart and it will grow, cease the violence." Evidently he is already making a difference - a humble one.

2007 has proven to be quite a successful year for reggae artist Humble. To start the year off the singer/songwriter earned a Juno nomination for his debut album "Hard to See", followed up by awards for Artist of the Year and Album of the year at the 2007 Reggae Achievement Awards, and most recent a Global Marijuana Music Award for his herb hit "High Grade". Having two songs air on two different episodes of "Da Kink In My Hair" and add stage performances in Jamaica (St. Mary Mi Come From), Montreal (Reggae Festival), Calgary (Reggae Festival), and most recently a performance in Japan all while completing his sophmore album under the Palm of Gold recording label. There's clearly no stopping this Lion as he's set to conquer in 2010.

It's clearly not Hard to See that this rasta youth is definitely going places.

Myself being a writer and a producer it was good to hear uplifting songs instead of (not to put down rap, because that is how I eat) this stuff we listen to every day. It's just a change for me. Very relaxing! I will cop your CD if it is sold in NY.
