Lee Scratch Perry is arguably one of the most influential Jamaican born singers, songwriters, producers and inventors of his time. Born in Kendal, Jamaica, Perry has helped evolve the Dub, Reggae, Techno and Ska genre since the 50’s. Lee Scratch Perry has remixed various versions of popular reggae tracks to create a fusion of sound that stays true to the Dub reggae, ska, rocksteady, jungle, electronic beats. Perry focused on collaborations with other artists early in his career such as Bob Marley and the Wailers, Junior Murvin, the Congos, Max Romeo, Adrian Sherwood, the Beastie Boys, Ari Up, and many others. In 1968, Perry broke away from his former record label to form his own label, Upsetter. The success of hit tracks with the ‘Upsetter’ label, opened the doors for Perry to win Grammy awards as well as influence the development and acceptance of reggae and dub music in Jamaica and overseas. In 2003, Perry won a Grammy for Best Reggae Album with the album Jamaican E.T. In his earlier years, Perry spent time in England and the United States, performing live and making records with a variety of collaborators. He is most noted for his unique sounding collaborations with Bob Marley. In 1970 Perry produced and released The Wailers track “Mr Brown” with its unusual use of studio effects and eerie opening highlighting his unique approach to production. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Perry #100 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, solidifying his name forever in the records for Reggae music. When asked by the Guardian what influenced Perry’s music, he responded, “Love. To tell the truth and speak the truth. Only the truth can save people.” A popular artist amongst fans of all ages, Lee Perry performed at the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California to sold out audiences. Perry’s love for pushing the limits and creating new sounds in the genre of reggae and ska is a truly magical thing to watch in all of his live shows across the world. Having hooked up with Mad Professor in 1983, Lee has been instrumental in the re-development of the Dub movement. The two have been touring on and off for the past 32 years, releasing fresh product all the while. Mystic Warrior was the first fruit from the collaboration between the 2 dubologists, and more recently followed Black Ark Classics in Dub. Lee Scratch Perry is available for bookings worldwide excluding the UK.
