DA COUNSELLOR’s Biography (@dacounsellor4)

00-counsellor1Oral Robinson, professionally known as Da Counsellor, was born on the 26th of April 1969. He grew up in Race Course, which is located in Grange Hill, Westmoreland with his mother, three brothers and three sisters. His father died when he was three years old. Da Counsellor’s love for music came from a form of genetic transition as he is the nephew of the late Jacob “Killer” Miller. Therefore music was embedded in his heart and soul.

Da Counsellor is a singer, a DJ, a songwriter, a music producer and a contractor. His belief is that the true beauty of music is that it connects people, it carries a message and musicians are the messengers. Da Counsellor is a God-fearing person who centres his music on Biblical perspectives and social phenomenon that can uplift, inspire and motivate ones way of life. That is why he is called Da Counsellor.

Music was not his only passion as he also has a love for construction. Since his youth, Da Counsellor was very knowledgeable about the difficulties involved in breaking into the music industry. He resolved at an early age, to not put all his eggs in one basket, so to speak, instead, he focused simultaneously on his job as construction worker and his career as a recording artist.

Upon leaving high school, Da Counsellor knew that he had to do something in order to generate income for his dreams to become a reality. Hence, his second passion of construction work came into play. At age 16 he worked at construction sites in Westmoreland and neighbouring parishes. Da Counsellor is an optimistic individual and it is said that optimism is the faith that leads to achievement and that nothing can be done without hope and confidence. At the age of 19 Da Counsellor save the money he had earned and bought a plane ticket to The Cayman Island where he hoped to find more consistent work. He did not get a job there at the time and so he ended returning to Jamaica. Not being one to give up, he soon tried looking for work in Panama and Curacao before going back to The Cayman Island where he did eventually get a good job. He currently travels back and forth between Jamaica and The Cayman Island where he is now a permanent resident.

Working in The Cayman Island, Da Counsellor was able to acquire the money needed to set in motion his dreams of becoming a recording artiste. In 2001 he went to the United States and did the Recordings for his first album which was entitled “God A De Number One”. It got good radio rotation in both Jamaica and The Grand Cayman. From there his musical journey started; he did shows in the United States, The Cayman Island and Jamaica. Although his musical career started to excel, he never gave up his second passion of construction work. He manages to balance both of them equally.

Currently Da Counsellor is working on releasing a new album entitled “You Going To Lose,” which he produced himself. The album features a collaboration with iconic Dancehall/Gospel artist Lieutenant Stitchie. A video was done for the title song “You Going To Lose” which was shot and edited by Jermaine Edwards
