Italee’s parents’ love for music in her younger years laid a good foundation for her musical development. She remembers waking up in the early hours of the mornings to her father singing and strumming away on his guitar (the best time for writing a song, he reckons) and the grand feeling that she’d get from participating in its creation. She remembers as a child being dolled up and taken by her mother to various competitions and the tremendous responses she’d receive from her audiences, replaying them in her mind for weeks or days until the next event. It was these early years that developed this genuine love and thirst within her for music and the stage.
Since then this universal giant has been making quite an impressive track record for herself, with a duet on Shaggy’s 10 times multi-platinum album Hot Shot, a solo performance entitled “Why” on the hit movie “Show Time” sound track album (starring Eddie Murphy and Robert Dinero) using her alias “RUDE” on both these projects.

She has also performed at numerous events alongside and sharing stage with some of Jamaica’s and the world greatest acts, and has been flown half way across the earth to New Zealand to star in the production of a 7 series Caruba Rum campaign .
