Maxi Priest - He is best known for singing reggae music with an RB influence, otherwise known as reggae fusion, and became one of the first international successes who regularly dabbled in the genre and one of the most successful reggae fusion acts of all-time. By the early to mid 90..s, Maxi was critically acclaimed for his skills in balancing hard-core reggae vibes with more mainstream pop sensibilities and that approach added to his growing popularity as both a recording and touring artist. In 1996, Maxi released the hit CD Man With The Fun, which contained the crossover single ..That Girl,.. a duet with Shaggy. ..That Girl.. became a Grammy Nominated track and the accompanying Hype Williams-directed video became and MTV staple. In 1987, Maxi left for Jamaica in the company of keyboard wizard Duncan Bridgeman and Mafia Fluxy, who are the UK's very own rhythm kings. It was in Kingston, Jamaica that he recorded his third album 'Maxi,' produced by Sly Robbie in collaboration with Willie Lindo. This masterful collection yielded the hits 'Some Guys Have All The Luck,' 'How Can We Ease The Pain,' shared with Beres Hammond, and an enchanting cover of Cat Stevens' 'Wild World' which went Top 5 in Britain, Top 10 in the Us and also entered the country and western charts! Soon, Further international acclaim came with his 1990 album 'Bonafide, which spawned the hits 'Just A Little Bit Longer,' 'Best Of Me,' 'Human Work Of Art,' 'Peace Throughout The World,' 'Sure Fire Love' and 'Close To You.' The latter reached No. 7 in the Uk, and then topped the Us Billboard charts in October 1990. More than twenty years later and Maxi Priest is still the only reggae singer from anywhere, including Jamaica to have a No. 1 hit in America. As Maxi's fame went global, Virgin released 'Best Of Me,' which contained a selection of hits past, present and future. This was the album containing 'Housecall,' featuring Shabba Ranks, who was Jamaica's reigning dee-jay at the time. 'Housecall' broke that mould and established Maxi and Shabba at the forefront of a new, urbanised form of reggae music that incorporated strands of hip hop and rb, as well as their trademark reggae sound. This groundbreaking new fusion transformed Maxi's 1992 album 'Fi Real' into a classic, and especially on tracks like 'Groovin' In The Midnight' and 'Just Wanna Know.' Major league collaborations with American soul legends Roberta Flack and arranger Arif Mardin and also jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour followed. During the mid-nineties, as reggae's popularity increased, he co-founded the hugely influential Mad House label whilst continuing his winning streak with dee-jays. In 1996, he and Shaggy were back in the charts with 'That Girl,' taken from the album 'Man With The Fun.' It was Maxi's fifth Top 20 hit in Britain, where his popularity has endured throughout his career. In 2008, he toured and recorded with fellow British reggae trailblazers Ub40. His success has led to seven gold albums and groundbreaking collaborations with Roberta Flack, Shaggy, Sly Robbie, Bennie Man and Beres Hammond.
KY-MANI Marley - Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall artist whose East African name means Adventurous Traveler. The only child of table tennis champion Anita Belnavis and reggae icon Bob Marley, Ky-mani Marley was born in Falmouth, Jamaica. At the age of nine he relocated to the inner-city of Miami. In beginning, Ky-Mani was unaware of his musical abilities, sports being his first love, but with his mother's direction, he took piano and guitar lessons and played trumpet in his high school band. In addition to tapping into his musical talents Ky-Mani was a serious jock, competing in football and handegg. As a teenager Ky-Mani started Rapping and DJ-ing; his first single was "Unnecessary Badness". He became inspired as a singer after being asked to sing a hook to a song during a recording session at a studio in Miami. The decision to actually get into the entertainment world loomed over him because of his father's legacy. Ky-Mani soon began experimenting with laying tracks, at times with his brothers, Stephen, Julian and Damian. Ky-Mani signed to Shang Records where he recorded his debut album in 1996 titled "Like Father Like Son" and several singles: "Judge Not" with Patra, followed by "Dear Dad" (which topped the British reggae charts), "Who The Cap Fit (remix)", and "Sensimelia", all of which added to his growing reputation as a master in the new generation of reggae musicians. In 1997, Ky-Mani joined forces with Praswell, of The Fugees on a hit cover of Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue". The extent of his star power became abundantly clear when Ky-Mani took the stage at Midem (international music showcase), when it was held in Miami for the first time. Catering to an international audience in the filled to capacity Cameo Theatre, Ky-Mani delivered an explosive set which aired live by Cana (Caribbean News Agency) to 36 countries. Ky-Mani immediately became the subject of an intense label bidding war. He signed with Gee Street/V2 Records in 1997 where he completed a collaboration with label mate P.M. Dawn on the single "Gotta Be Movin' On Up"(Senseless Soundtrack, which went Gold in Africa). Both collaborations helped to establish Ky-Mani outside his tight knit reggae community. Ky-Mani's willingness to embrace all genres of music is also evident in the 2000 release, The Journey. From the Spanish guitar which introduces "RudeBoy", to the lover rock flow of "Fell In Love", the deeply spiritual "Lord Is My Shepherd" or the rock steady tribute "Dear Dad", Ky-mani brings songs of universal themes laced with a personal insight and passion. In 2001 he released his third studio album Many More Roads. He then went on tour and in 2004 released his fourth studio album Milestone. He then in 2007 released his fifth studio album "Radio". Fulfilling his name 'Adventurous Traveler' branching out from his music, Ky-mani Marley has also made a name for himself as an actor playing the lead role in the number one underground movie coming out of Jamaica, Shottas directed by Cess Silvera, co-starring Spragga Benz and Paul Campbell. Displaying his diversification and talent playing the role of a bad man in Shottas, Ky-mani Marley then went on to play the lead Kassa with co-star Cherine Anderson in One Love, a romantic comedy infused with the music and culture of Jamaica. Ky-mani Marley is now working on his sixth studio album showcasing his growth as an individual and illustrating the duality of his personality: Ky-mani and Maestro. The result is an urban sound deeply rooted in the reggae and hip hop cultures. The album promises to be a refreshing departure from the typical synthetic pop associated with the genre, and will instead be a representation of authentic urban hip hop and reggae fusion. His newest single is called " New Heights" released March 3, 2011.
Big Mountain - Reached the charts with the song "Touch My Light" in the late spring of 1993, receiving major airplay "Baby, I Love Your Way" was included on the soundtrack for the film, Reality Bites, and peaked at number six in the Billboard Hot 100 and number two in the Uk Singles Chart. The follow-up, "Sweet Sensual Love" reached number fifty-one in the Uk, and the album Unity (with the line-up now featuring Jamaican guitarist Tony Chin and drummer Carlton "Santa" Davis) went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. Big Mountain (band) is poised to reclaim its international crown. Lead singer Quino has one of the most recognized voices in pop music and considering their past successes, Big Mountain plans to release a new album in 2013. Big Mountain has toured hundreds of cities in more than 30 countries and sold more than 2 million albums and 6 million singles. Their fame spread quickly when they recorded a reggae version of Peter Frampton's song "Baby I Love Your Way," which was featured on the soundtrack of the Ben Stiller and Wynona Ryder movie Reality Bites. Featuring Quino's unique vocals, this hit single reached #1 on the U.S. charts and dominated the Top 5 in Europe and Japan for nearly a year! The hit remains a favorite among people around the world, including new listeners alike. Big Mountain quickly became a headlining band as they burst onto the international scene, and the band soon attracted some of reggae's legendary musicians. Their popularity soared with the release of their famed albums "Unity" and "Resistance" with Warner Brothers.
LLOYD Brown - Over the course of the past three decades, Lloyd Brown has risen to the very pinnacle of his profession, and with a string of hit singles and critically acclaimed albums to his credit, is now hailed as one of UK's best ever reggae singer/songwriters. Born and raised in London to Jamaican parents, he began his career in 1979 by dee-jaying in "blues-dances" before progressing on fully fledged sound-systems in the early eighties with London-based sound-systems Jah Marcus, Exodus and East Man. His earliest singles included Music Medley, Ring Up My Number and The Love In Me, all of them released on Robert Ribs' Unity label circa 1987. Sharing The Night (produced by Junior Frost), then provided him with his first No. 1 hit, and was voted Reggae Single Of The Year in 1990. You Can't Hurry Love, For The Love Of You and Love U Down (his second No. 1 hit, and another Reggae Single Of The Year) soon followed, together with a version of Otis Redding's These Arms Of Mine. Partnership with Tippa Irie won the duo a well deserved contract with Arista, who released their follow-up single, Baby Mother. I Know (inspired by Bob Marley's Kinky Reggae) subsequently became one of 2001's biggest reggae hits, even as Deep was being acclaimed as a masterpiece and his best album thus far. By the time the follow-up, Against The Grain, was released two years later his tally of hit singles had swelled to include You Must Know, co-starring Don Campbell; Bless Me and the unstoppable Main Squeeze, which rocketed into the Reggae Top 5 on both sides of the Atlantic. Against The Grain was nominated for Best Album at the 11th Annual Reggae Soca Awards in Florida; an event that saw Lloyd being crowned Best Newcomer for the second time in his career. His next set was Dreams To Remember, produced by Lloyd Campbell and released on VP Records in 2004. This album, recorded in Miami, yielded four hit singles in the shape of Bless Me, Since You've Been Gone, Heartaches and Bongo Nyah, which soon gave Lloyd his second Reggae Top 5 hit in New York. His follow-up album for VP Really Together featuring Fiona was cited by Lloyd as a "true labour of love" as Fiona was an artist he really admired and wanted to work with-which proved its point in the finished product, also with the reggae panel of the Grammys who have shortlisted the album for nomination for Best Reggae Album 2005. 2012 saw another landmark year for Lloyd as he had released his fifteenth 20-track studio album celebrating three decades of making music simply entitled "30" released in February 2012 via Riddimworks Productions and Phoenix Music International. 2013 will see Lloyd once again release another album, his sixteenth entitled New Veteran, featuring collaborations with R n B songstress Kele Le Roc, former Wailers guitarist Junior Marvin and lyricist extraordinaire Tanya Stephens via Riddimworks Productions and Phoenix Music International.
