Dread Ashanti was born on the jutting promontory of Castle Point in Kailua. Informal jam sessions by two teenage brothers Bryce Myers and Ian Masterson soon attracted classmates from Punahou and Kalaheo High School, including a classically trained pianist, Shawn Moseley, and a punk- and jazz-influenced bass player named Pat Morley who would later form the band Elvis 77. After finding their lead singer in a Caribbean rasta named Ital, the band nailed down the sound and soul that would make it a fixture of the beach town party scene in a still undiscovered Kailua.
