Barrington Levy is a living legend in reggae circles and remains the perennial favorite of audiences in Jamaica – and throughout the world. Always a solid voice and a uniquely expressive song style, Barrington has consistently been at the forefront of the music scene, doing recent collaborations with the likes of Bounty Killer, Snoop Dogg, Slightly Stoopid, and even Handsome Boy Modeling School.
Barrington Levy’s outstanding career began more than two and a half decades ago. Called reggae’s ‘Mellow Canary’ by virtue of his strong, pure vocal style, he’s renowned as the first original singer of the dancehall era. In the late 1980’s, Barrington Levy began working with veteran producer Jah Screw, and together they created some of reggae’s most memorable recordings.
