He attended the Warsup All-Age and Christiana High schools. While at school Lebert sang the popular songs of the day when called upon to sing at class concerts. It was during this time Lebert realized he had a special love for music and began honing his talent.

He then moved to Kingston, the music capital of Jamaica, in the early 90’s to be closer to the music. In Kingston Lebert visited many recording studios, among them being Black Scorpio, Music Works, Roof Top, Mixing Lab, Arrows, Jammy’s and Tuff Gong, where he did auditions for various producers.

Around 1994 Lebert got the chance to record his first song entitled “Raise the Dead” produced by Leonard Griffiths on the Rose Royce label and distributed by Sonic Sound Records. Also in 1994 he got the break to do his first big stage show, gracing the stage alongside seasoned artist, Pinchers, at Glendon Court Play House in Old Harbour, St. Catherine. From there Lebert began to make steady rise in the music business doing more recordings and stage shows.

In 1995 and 1996 he was among the artists featured at Bob Marley’s “Birthday Bash” staged in Nine Miles, St. Ann…lined up artists included Ziggy Marley, Yami Bolo and Jimmy Riley.

In 1996 he joined with Vikings Production and Multi Production to record “Oh My Commanded Wife”, Mama Earth” and “Earth Runnings”. Lebert’s rise in the music business saw him going on a number of tours.

In 2002 he went on tour in the twin island of Trinidad and Tobago with Admiral Tibet, Courtney Melody, Chuck Fenda and many other artists.

Following upon that tour he successfully toured Barbados with Courtney Melody and Uriel Banton in 2003, and in 2005, toured Grenada with Jah Mason, Pinchers, Mickeylous and Michael Fabelous Presently Lebert manages his own career and produces his songs.

His latest singles include “Box of Chocolate” ft. Trillindion and “Keep on Praying”, collaboration with Black Dillinger from South Africa. These songs are making great strides in the Caribbean, Africa and the UK.
