Portrait of Carlyle Myrie & Chosen To Minister
Carlyle T. Myrie was born in Cross Keys, Manchester, Jamaica. He migrated to the U.S. at the age of 12.

As a youngster, Carlyle was exposed primarily to gospel and reggae music. His parents, devoted Christians along with his six siblings frequently attended church and were there at least four times every week. At age 9, Carlyle received his first musical instrument, a guitar which was a gift from his parents. Unfortunately, shortly thereafter, his guitar broke, however his spirit was not broken and his love and passion for music remained with him. After migrating to the U.S., Carlyle started playing different musical instruments such as the bass guitar, the drums and the keyboard. Carlyle focused primarily on the keyboard and he became very good, that he was invited to play at church functions. At some of these functions, Carlyle was asked to sing and that was how his singing career began. This was shot lived however, as Carlyle was awarded a college soccer scholarship at Tusculum college in Tennessee thus, his music career was put on hold.

After graduating from college, Carlyle moved back to the tri-state area and continued to play at church events and weddings. Carlyle has also had the opportunity to play at several concerts with a few local reggae artists on the East Coast. While traveling and playing with the reggae bands, he realized that something was missing, although he was playing reggae music his true calling was to play gospel music. While on the road, he prayed for guidance and for a breakthrough, Carlyle’s prayers were answered. With his renewed spirit, Carlyle decided to serve the Lord through music. As a result, Carlyle rededicated his life to the Lord and the Lord has blessed him with his first album "Give Thanks". His music is influenced by both Gospel and Secular artists.

Carlyle, a devoted Christian plays every Sunday at his local church where he is also the music director. He is grateful for each day he is allowed on this earth and know he was chosen to minister for the Lord.
