O-shen's musical career began in the South Pacific nation of PNG.


His first album was released into the PNG market in mid 1997. Although the record was only intended to be a demo, it's uniqueness won nationwide recognition and resulted in O-shens local fame. He was the first PNG artist to rap in the local language and that made a big impact on the island music scene. Widely supported by the public, O-shen became somewhat of a musical ambassador for Papua New Guinea. O-shens first release was only marketed in PNG and other Melanesian island countries.


In 2000 O-shen broke into the Hawaii music scene with his release, self titled, âIron Youthâ. O-shen's blend of reggae, hip-hop, and contemporary sound won the prestige's 2001 âNa Hoku hanohanoâ award for Hawaii reggae album of the year. The âIron Youthâ album was a hit throughout many island countries, and helped establish O-shen's music throughout the Pacific.


After some touring in the Pacific, O-shen released the album âRascal in Paradiseâ which also gained popularity throughout the islands. âThrow away the Gunâ is a song on the album âRascal in Paradiseâ which was used in a major motion picture âFifty first Datesâ.


O-shen's song âFree Island Peopleâ was a featured song on the GRAMMY nominated âIsland Warriorsâ compilation. This compilation featured local Hawaiian Reggae artists.


O-shen's album âKanaka Pacificaâ just released in Papua New Guinea and went number one on the local charts and radio stations in PNG. "Kanaka Pacifica" will be available in Hawaii in late 2004. "Kanaka Pacifica" was recorded with the legendary âSupasound Crewâ.


O-shen's newest album project titled âRising Sonâ was released. âRising Sonâ shows off O-shen's versatility with his music and sends a strong message through his conscious lyrics. A pacific and possibly a world tour is in the planning for 2006 to spread the music and the message.


"When the streets meet the jungle Faya is born!" "Faya!" is O-shen's latest release that was recorded in Papua Niugini. Once again O-shen incorporates a variety of languages and culture within many new and original songs.
