A talented musician of South London to Jamaican parents.Garnett Cross, commonly known as Sgt Pepper is the youngest brother of a successful family of musicians.He is the brother to Sandra Cross,Dennis Cross,Victor Cross,Billy Cross,Hector Cross KVH and Derrick Cross Slim Linton KVH who have all contributed significantly to UK Lovers Rock and Reggae Music.Also Patrick Cross who has contributed to Gospel music.So it is no surprise that Garnett Cross starting singing,playing keyboards and drum at the tender age of nine. Surrounded by deep-rooted music and brothers Victor(Keyboards),Billy (drums) & Dennis(keyboards) he learned rapidly and was playing professional keyboard with the Brixton Based Band Aquizim.
Garnett Cross began his recording with South London based record label Studio 16 owned by Winston Edwards and got his first recording as a DJ (toasting) on a B side of Sandra Crosss hit single I just dont care. He furthered his career at Awira Records with the genius Mad Professor, where this very young musician at the age of 15 was singing and composing what would become both his and The Mad Professors first single titled; Come Back Again launching the Awira label. He contributed to a large number of songs that are now foundational pieces of reggae music. With the launch of his album Judgement Day his songwriting skills were apparent and shining with other release such True-True Loving, Time Of My Life, Magnet as well as a series solid songs released on the Awira Records Label.
I have preformed in front of large audiances on many occasions as a solo artist or keyboard player in live bands.Backing well known reggae artist from Jamaica & the UK.Artists such as"Delroy Wilson,Leroy Smart The Twinkle Bros,Ariwa Posse & Horace Andy" to name a few.
