Reggae Legends

Bunny Wailer

Bunny Wailer
Had he emerged from any band other than the Wailers,  Bunny Wailer would quite probably have been recognized as a giant in his own right.
By Jeff Tamarkin

Burning Spear

Burning Spear
The early albums by Winston Rodney, aka Burning Spear, are masterpieces of roots 'n' Rasta that practically define “dread.”
By Tom Pryor

Capleton

Capleton
Capleton had an early gift for (sometimes lewd) wordplay. Then Capleton got religion, Rastafarianism to be specific, and the tone and tenor of his music began to change.
By Tom Pryor

Culture

Culture
In terms of his commitments to a strictly-roots outlook and an unwavering belief in Africa as a true homeland, Culture’s Joseph Hill ranks among foundational reggae’s mightiest spokesmen.
By Tom Orr

Ernest Ranglin

Ernest Ranglin
Ernest Ranglin’s nimble guitar wizardry enhanced innumerable recordings and defined several indigenous Jamaican styles from late-’50s to the late ’60s.
By Patricia Meschino

Gregory Isaacs

Gregory Isaacs
Gregory Isaacs is one of reggae’s all-time greatest singers, a master of subtle phrasing and sly innuendo who’s voiced some of the music’s best-known hits.
By Tom Pryor

Jimmy Cliff

Jimmy Cliff
Best known for his starring role in the classic reggae film The Harder They Come, and for its brilliant soundtrack, Jimmy Cliff was one of reggae's first international icons.
By Tom Terrell

King Tubby

King Tubby
King Tubby was the studio genius and sound innovator who invented dub reggae. He was responsible for some of the genre’s greatest recordings and changed the way people listened to music.
By Tom Pryor

Lady Saw

Lady Saw
Lady Saw is one of the most successful female dancehall DJs of all time. Lewd, lascivious and often shockingly hilarious, her x-rated rhymes paved the way for many of the dancehall queens who would follow.
By Pilar Alvarez

Linton Kwesi Johnson

Linton Kwesi Johnson
One of the great, pioneering dub/reggae poets, Linton Kwesi Johnson's laser-sharp diatribes are usually focused on his adopted country of England.
By Judson Kilpatrick

Lucky Dube

Lucky Dube
While most reggae artists were bemoaning South Africa’s Apartheid government throughout the 1980s, Lucky Dube was living the struggle firsthand.
By Tom Pryor
