A singer, writer, composer, producer, artist, educator and explorer, Meshach (aka M.D.Spooner), hailing from London, UK, is the brainchild behind M.D.Spooner, Inc., a movement which bore its first flowers and fruit many moons ago through the medium of music.
Born in Swansea, Wales, and raised in Kenya, Ghana and Ethiopia, before settling in London, Meshach vividly recalls "singing and dancing along to Bob Marley's greatest hits and Michael Jackson's ‘Dangerous’ album" in the courtyard of his Accra home, as well as stumbling across ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’, after relocating to London, and being "completely possessed by the energy of the record". These, he says, "were definitely defining moments" in shaping his musical identity.
This newfound identity altered the course of Meshach’s destiny, so to speak, which had previously appeared to be unequivocally headed in the direction of a career in football. It was at this pivotal juncture that he decided to follow the fork in the road and dedicate his life to music. Meshach began studying a Popular Music National Diploma in college before dropping out to perform on a national under-18 club tour with his then group, All 4 Corners, which became a major early milestone on his musical quest. This was catalysed by a trip to Atlanta, Georgia, to work with Grammy Award winning producer, Eric Cire (Mariah Carey, Mila J, K Michelle), prior to which Meshach had signed (along with his group, All 4 Corners) to Big Brovaz Entertainment (the company which spawned the platinum selling group, Big Brovaz) and worked with songwriter Dean McIntosh (better known as Arrow Benjamin).
Meshach has since worked with various choirs, ensembles and collectives, as well as being a major player in the establishment and development of HTG Entertainment, the Ville Records and the popular live music night, ERA: Every Rhythm Allowed.
