Features: Lead Singers: Muriel Fowler & Donovan Carless...

Roots reggae music is ageless and like a good wine, it gets better with time. The same can be said of Donovan Carless and his smooth vocal style. The veteran singer of the legendary Soul Syndicate Band has over thirty years of reggae music experience to his credit. Attending St. Andrew Technical High School in Kingston Jamaica, Donovan formed his first group, 'The Little Roys' with friend and singer, Earl "Little Roy' Lowe. While still in High School, Donovan joined the now famous Soul Syndicate Band that included a who's-who of reggae: Fully Full wood on bass (later to join Peter Tosh's Word Sound & Power Band), guitarist, Tony Chin and Leroy "Horse mouth" Wallace on drums. The band began recording for Vincent "Chin" Randy's Impact label where Donovan voiced, "Garden Party" (and other top ten hits), "Love Of The Common People" "Sweet Caroline","Be Thankful" and "How Can I Tell Her".

Muriel Fowler is an exceptional vocalist with superior range which span various genres.

Sensory Expressions is comprised of members who have played with groups such as "Donovan and the Posse, Jam Rock, Stanley Baird, Crucial Fire, Pure Fiyah, The Wailers, Morgan Heritage and Culture among others".

This band is EXCELLENT! They are very good musicians. They are professionals. The attendees of my family reunion (many of whom are musicians from all over the country)continue to call me about their love for Sensory Expressions... they want more or a recording. Willing to hire this group again and again without reservation. EXCELLENT!

Recently, our law firm held its annual attorney/spouse party. Approximately 100 people attended the event, which was Caribbean themed. We searched the East Coast for the BEST Caribbean band to set the right atmosphere for our event. We were impressed with Vaughn and his group from the first contact through his kind follow up at the end. They are a remarkably talented group of musicians who make you feel that you are in the Caribbean with your "toes in the water and butt in the sand." If you are looking for a professional group with high quality music, you will be thrilled with the music of Sensory Expressions." Matt Broughton, Partner, Roanoke Virginia law firm.

Vaughn with Sensory Expressions was absolutely fantastic. He played the steel drums for our Company Christmas party and his music couldn't have been more perfect. Our employees loved it .... very festive and fun! He was such a pleasure to work with from the beginning. I would highly recommend Vaughn, and our company would book him again in a heartbeat! :)

Very professional from start to finish - excellent group ! Many comments from attendees of the North Carolina Food Truck State Championship in Randleman, NC such as I can close my eyes and feel like I'm in the Caribbean with a breeze blowing through my hair. Several musical groups and this is the best one yet one man said. When are they coming back ? These are comments you want to hear and that is what we heard from the public. Great job Sensory Expressions !!! We will see you again soon in Randleman, NC.
