Specialist Moss was born and raised in West London, with his parentage hailing from St Lucia. Growing up in a musical home due to his Dad being a musician. Music has always played a major part in his life, be it listening too or creating it. At age 8 Moss was playing drums in a band he had formed with his older brother and sister, which lead to him writing his own music.
Inspired by the success of his performance he continued to write more lyrics. He soon began to perform regularly as a Ragga MC on local sound systems under the name ‘Cornell Clarky’. The early rave scene of the early 90’s opened his eyes and ears to a larger variety of musical genres, and he started to MC on local radio station Transmission 1 under the name ‘Specialist Moss’. As things progressed Specialist Moss started recording with the likes of Kool Kat (now known as Mr Williamz) Sunship, Zed Bias, Ed Case, Tubby T, Elizabeth Troy, Ms Dynamite, Jon Skinner and many more. This lead to him touring Europe and America as well as presenting a popular and successful music show on channel 4 called ‘Flava’.
Specialist Moss is now recording and producing his own album and continues to work with fellow producers from various genres.
