John Hewitt a.k.a. Esquire
Brooklyn, NY, Barbados descent
"Esquire" was born John Hewitt of Barbadian parents in Brooklyn. He began his journey in music early, taking piano lessons from the age of 8 and hasn't stopped hitting the keys since. Esquire applied his keyboarding talent towards being a founding member of Technic Band. The band would go on to become a chart-topper with the soca hit Ride It.
Esquire's love for playing music grew into the curiosity of creating music. He began composing and producing songs for Technic and other musicians. Eventually, he would open up a full-fledged recording and production studio - Vibecast Music and the Front Room Studio were born. During his ongoing tenure with Technic and at his Front Room studio, Esquire has worked alongside, produced and recorded many world renowned artists such as Shabba Ranks, Freddie McGregor, Luciano, Michael Rose, Chuck Fender, Bushman, Yami Bolo, Krosfyah, Square One, Red Plastic Bag, Iwer George and Rupee to name a few. He toured from New York to Los Angeles, and many places in between with Technic and other artists such as Eek-A-Mouse.
Esquire is a classically trained musician, not a "press button" producer, as he puts it. He has the uncanny ability to make virtually any type of music; from soca and reggae, to hip hop, pop, R & B to gospel and soul. Music has always been an important part of his life and will continue to be so indefinitely.
