In 1997, Nyah moved to Maine, US from the Caribbean Island of St. Thomas Virgin Island and started Stream Reggae Band shorty after. He had been playing reggae music in local bands at festivals and resorts all over the Caribbean for several years since he became heavily influenced by the sounds of Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh along with the Soca, Zouk and Cadence music styles from the Caribbean. His passion was always music so he wasted no time in putting Stream together and the band has been going strong ever since.
