Born in Montreal Quebec, raised in Edmonton Alberta, Cheyenne grew up surrounded by music from his parent’s record collection. At a young age, he was exposed to several genres of music ranging from soul, r&b, jazz, funk, to calypso, reggae, and folk. His summers were spent in Montreal where he would have the opportunity to experience the International Jazz Festivals. This was a significant musical influence for him.
After his move to Edmonton in the mid-’80s, he decided to continue record collecting and began his DJ hobby in the late ’90s. From 1999 to 2003, Cheyenne produced a radio show called “The Global Groove Connection” while studying Psychology at the University of Alberta. The campus radio show featured: soul, neo-soul, funk, acid jazz, eclectic, underground hip-hop, soulful house, and world music. It grew in popularity
and remained the most listened to 'urban radio' program on Saturday nights from 2001 to 2003 (according to media ratings).
