Excerpt: Darrin O'Brien (born October 30, 1969), better known by his stage name Snow, is a Canadian reggae musician. He is best known for his 1993 single "Informer", which reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Snow was born and raised in the North York district of Toronto, Ontario. For much of his childhood, he lived in the Allenbury Gardens housing projects, and at the age of 16 moved to Ajax, Ontario. Snow was discovered by a Jamaican-born DJ named Marvin Prince, while living in Ajax. The name Snow, a backronym for "Super Notorious Outrageous Whiteboy", was given to him by Marvin Prince. Prince took Snow to New York City and introduced him to MC Shan, who introduced them both to producer David Kenneth Eng and Steve Salem. Snow eventually signed a contract to record on their Motorjam/Elektra record label. His 1993 debut album was 12 Inches of Snow. MC Shan and Marvin Prince produced the entire album while Snow was imprisoned for a year on an assault charge. Upon his release from prison, Snow's first single "Informer", written by Marvin Prince, became a chart topping hit. The album sold over 8 million records worldwide, with the single from the album "Informer" remaining number 1 on the American Billboard charts for seven consecutive weeks. "Informer" has been recorded twice in the Guinness Boo

Excerpt: Apache Indian is the stage name of the reggae dee jay/toaster, Steven Kapur (born 11 May 1967, Handsworth, Birmingham). Born into a family of Indian origins, Kapur grew up in Handsworth, a racially mixed area with large Black and Asian communities, home of reggae bands such as Steel Pulse, and by the early 1980s he was working with local sound systems and wearing dreadlocks. By the mid-1980s he had trimmed his hair and began to make a name for himself as a dancehall deejay, and he recorded his first single in 1990, "Movie Over India", initially a white-label pressing, until it was picked up by the reggae distributor Jet Star. The single mixed ragga and bhangra and was hugely popular among audiences of both genres. Two further singles followed in a similar vein, "Chok There" and "Don Raja", bringing him to the attention of the major labels, and in 1992 he signed a recording contract with Island Records. With the collaboration of his cousins Simon

  • Reggae Routes: The Story of Jamaican Music

  • Bob Marley's recordings, some twenty years after his death, still enjoy enormous international popularity. For popular music fans in most of the world
    Bob Marley's recordings, some twenty years after his death, still enjoy enormous international popularity. For popular music fans in most of the world, reggae looms so large as to be Jamaica's only music and Marley its consummate musician. In this book, Jamaicans Kevin Chang and Wayne Chen, offer a history of reggae, accounting for its rise and devolution.Jamaican music can be roughly divided into four eras, each with a distinctive beat-ska, rocksteady, reggae, and dancehall. Ska dates from about 1960 to mid-1966 and rocksteady from 1966 to 1968, while from 1969 to 1983 reggae was the popular beat. The reggae era had two phases, "early reggae" up to 1974 and "roots reggae" up to 1983. Since 1983 dancehall has been the prevalent sound.The authors describe each stage in the development of the music, identifying the most popular songs and artists, highlighting the significant social, political, and economic issues as they affected the musical scene. While they write from a Jamaican perspective, the intended audience is "any person, local or foreign, interested in an intelligent discussion of reggae music and Jamaica". Featuring some four hundred illustrations that range from album covers and posters to rare photos, Reggae Routes profiles the innumerable artists, producers, and recordings that secured an international audience for Jamaican music.

Two strong song-writing teams, one commercial and one artistic, injected sharp wit to lyrically-dextrous songs. The commercial team (Stewart and Gouldman) were straight pop-song-writers, who created the bands most accessible songs; the artistic team (Godley and Creme) were the experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematic writing. Each man was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, writer, and producer, and each could perform as the lead singer. Three of the founding members of 10cc were childhood friend

Excerpt: Tilmann Otto (April 19, 1975 in Osnabrück, Germany), better known by his stage name Gentleman, is a German Reggae musician. Gentleman resides in Cologne, but sometimes names Jamaica as his home away from home. He is the son of a Lutheran pastor. He is the father of two children named Samuel and Tamica, and married to Tamika, a background singer of the Far East Band, which has been supporting him since his first concert tour of Germany in 2002. He has been traveling to Jamaica regularly since he was 16 years old. Legend has it that he became hooked on his brother's Reggae records and thus wanted to get to know Jamaica first-hand. The island has become a second home for him. In the meantime, Gentleman is also regarded as a popular reggae artist in Jamaica as well, which he regards as an honor, being a European. His career began with the collaboration of the band Freundeskreis which produced the song "Tabula Rasa." After beginning his career as a Deejay, his music oriented itself on the classic form of the reggae genre, like that of Bob Marley. He sings mainly in English or rather Patois (Jamaican-Creole). With songs like "Send A Prayer," Gentleman expresses his deep belief in God, without referring to a particular religion. His album, Confidence, climbed to number 1 on the German album cha
