This reggae and dancehall recording artiste may go by the name Unknown Gringo, but he is no 'foreigner' to the platform that is Jamaica's rich and captivating culture of music as his name would suggest. The term 'Gringo', which is not widely known or used in dancehall circles, is a Latin American term that refers to a person who is a foreigner or a person who doesn't speak Spanish. Born Frantz Morris and raised in Flankers, St. James, Unknown Gringo, learned how to use the vibrant historical backdrop of the Montego Bay-community to create a unique yet truly authentic sound. The artiste praises music as an escape from the harshness of life while growing up in the volatile area. He shares, "Growing up, music was my escape from violence, and my stories are told through my songs."
