Clinton Fearon is one of the key figures of the music scene of sixties Jamaica: his career began in the young band The Brothers and in 1969 he joined the legendary Gladiators, with whom he shared the wonder years of all their albums released on Virgin. During this period he also worked as a session musician with artists like Coxsone Dodd, Lee Perry and Yabby You. In 1987 he left the band to move to Seattle, and in 1994 founded the Boogie Brown Band, which marked his artistic rebirth, nuturing an extensive discography which took us back to the golden era of Jamaican roots. In one of his artistic endeavours, we can find him performing acoustic music on the guitar and singing, in a soul like vein which blends effortlessly with acoustic reggae.
