I Octane Biography:

Byiome I-Octane Muir age 22 was born in Sandy Bay in Negril the western part of Jamaica in 1988.

At an early age young Byiome always had a passion for music and used to be fascinated by the Reggae culture.  Though being a Reggae star was a gift he didn’t think he could possess.  Even though Byiome had good grades in school he also had some turbulent times.  While attending Garvey Maceo High School he got into trouble and was suspended.  With something negative in his life came along with a positive.  A older friend of his told him to try and pursue a career in singing due to his great voice, thought process and vocabulary. Byiome kept the idea in mind in case his plans to be an Architect failed.  After completing high school with good grades his family couldn’t support his dream to become an Architect due to the lack of money.  This was a blessing in disguise becuase after this moment a star was born.

Byiome was always known for an extensive vocabulary that was able to spit rhymes quickly. Though he was doing it for fun and didn’t think anything would become of this.  His friends would encourage him to get more involved in the Dancehall scene and take it more seriously.  It wasn’t until a producer heard one of his free performances and saw huge potential with his raw talent and lyrical ability. With confidence in his back pocket it was time to come up with a stage name.  Byiome chose to go by the name of I – Octane due to his high energy levels and long lasting ability.

Preforming shows and doing performances finally paid off when he was recognised by the famous Producer Donovan Germain who told him to join his team at Penthouse Records.  During the first year he recorded with stars Beres Hammond, Buju Banton and Assassin. Working with Reggae and Dancehall stars helped him improve is vocal cords and understand how to flow properly.  I Octane has his first break when he preformed with Bennie Man on stage at Summer Sizzle Jamaica.

Since then I Octane has successfully made his name known across Jamaica and through out the West Indies. He is the fastest new rising star to hit Jamaica since Vybz Kartel.  Dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel has reported saying that I Octane is the closest thing he has to competition in the industry, and to watch out for this rising star.
