Elephant Man

Elephant Man, also known as the Energy God (born O'Neil Bryan; 11 September 1975; Kingston, Jamaica) is a dancehall musician. Bryan's stagename stemmed from his large ears, which led to the nickname Dumbo in his youth. He started out his musical career as a member of the Scare Dem Crew, later continuing as a solo artist. He was later characterised for several trademarks, such as his dyed yellow-orange hair, his unique low-key voice, and his stage performance, which included jumping and running, or even climbing on stage props and monitors. His acoustic trademark is marked by a light lisp. Bryan had his first international recognition when he and Puma settled a contract for using his single "All Out" for its Olympics commercial campaign in 2004. He also had a song called "Willie Bounce" that appeared on several mixtapes in early 2006. It sampled the first few bars from "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. Recently, Bryan signed with New York-based label Bad Boy Records and released Let's Get Physical on 6 November 2007. The first single is called "Five-O" and features Wyclef Jean.
