Dwain “Wiya” Campbell (Keyboard)

Growing up in a musical family, it was hard for Dwain to steer away from music as a career option. Every member of his family either sang or played a musical instrument, some did both. Dwain would play at church in his hometown in St Mary. From the drums, to guitar and Bass, Dwain was no stranger to musical instruments. He however became fascinated with the Keyboard only a few months before enrolling at the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts. He had a long standing passion to play an instrument that would give him the dexterity to sing and play at the same time, for him the keyboard seemed the obvious choice. Other than playing an instrument Dwain has grown into production, as well as as studio engineer perfecting his art in mixing and mastering musical recording. He has mixed numerous tracks from C-Sharp first album “What A Day” and is presently taking charge of the production side of C-Sharp’s upcoming album.

Randy discovered his love for music at age six when he would make guitars from sardine cans, a piece of board and fish lines. As he got older he learned to play the bass which he played at church but later committed to playing the drums which he felt most comfortable with. Graduating from the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts in 2001, Randy started teaching at Seaforth High School but soon became disenchanted, so when the position later opened up for a drummer in C-Sharp Band he quickly jumped at the opportunity to play with the Band.
