ROOTS
Born in Uganda 1980, Mad Ice started his career way back in 1998 as a young emcee and performer on various talent shows and singing covers in hotels but at the same time writing his own songs. Influenced mostly by mid 90s Caribbean sounds of Chaka demus & pliers, Shaggy and the likes, this affected a lot on Mad Ice's earlier style which can be heard on his debut album Baby Gal. Fusing different musical styles has been a big part in the making of Mad Ice's music from the very beginning. The Caribbean sounds were more a street influence, at home Mad Ice listened to country, soft rock and South African music. In search for true inspiration Mad Ice landed on Seal, Tracy Chapman, Khaja nin, and Lokua Kanza's music... I guess this explains the diversity of the singer we see today.......GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE SINGER AND HIS WORKS THROUGH
