Shinehead

Surrounded by legends like BRIGADIER JERRY and RANKIN JOE, SHINEHEAD flourished in Reggae Roots and Dancehall both lyrically and in his knowledge of a wide variety of music that he collected from the likes of Tony Screw and Kiddy Rankz of FIRGO DIGITAL.  SHINEHEAD started releasing singles in 1984, including a cover of MICHAEL JACKSON’s “Billie Jean,” which brought him notoriety in and out of the dancehalls.  His recording debut was in 1986 on the African Love Music label with “Who The Cap Fits (Let Them Wear It)” from the Rough & Rugged album

He has performed internationally for SUNSPLASH, GARANCE FESTIVAL, REBEL SALUTE, ROTOTOM, REGGAE GEEL, REGGAE SUN SKA, FESTIPOP, OUTLOOK FESTIVAL, Irish and Chin’s REEEWIND and for DAMIAN MARLEY’s JAMROCK CRUISE  every year since its inception!  Whether with a live band or as a guest deejay on a soundsystem, SHINEHEAD entertains crowds, internationally satiating long time fans, and enchants new generations of Reggae and Hip Hop fans with lyrical skills that show that as he gets older, SHINEHEAD’s musical abilities continue to refine like a great vintage wine!
