Marcia Griffiths
Marcia Griffiths
Vocalist, born in 1954 in Kingston, Jamacia.

Marcia Griffiths started singing professionally in 1964, for Byron Lee and the Dragonaires band. Her recording years started soon after, at Coxsone Dodd’s - Studio One where she recorded her first hit “Feel Like Jumping." While recording at Studio One Marcia teamed up with Bob Andy and many duet recordings followed.
Following that duet success, she went solo again on the High Note label with Reggae's sole established female producer - Sonia Pottinger - hitting with several songs.
Ten years after entering the music business, Marcia united with Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley to form the I-Threes as an important part of the Bob Marley entourage.
Sly and Robbie
Sly and Robbie
Sly and Robbie are a prolific Jamaican rhythm section and production duo, associated primarily with the reggae genre. Drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robert Shakespeare teamed up in the mid-1970s after establishing themselves separately in Jamaica as professional musicians. Sly and Robbie are estimated to have played on or produced 200,000 recordings, many of them on their own label, Taxi Records.

Sly & Robbie have won several Grammy Awards since 1984, the first year Reggae got its own Grammy category. That year, they won with Black Uhuru. Since then, they have won a Grammy for best reggae album in 1998 with Friends and several others. They have also been nominated with No Doubt, for whom they produced two hit singles in 2001 (Hey Baby and Underneath it all).

Lee Tafari - Acoustic To Vinyl
Born Trevor B. Lee on Dec. 18th 1975 in Kingston Jamaica. As the son of Daddy Lees, owner of Lee's Unlimited Sound (est. 1968) he was surrounded by music from the start, and from early childhood he was clearly destined to be a part of it.

When Lee was 7 he moved with his mom and sister to Florida where he mostly grew up. His first venture into the music was dancing "Being part of a festive family such as mine it was hard not to pree Music.

When we would have parties or go to them everyone would want me to dance and lively up the place." but his ability as a selector(dj) soon became apparent. Just out of high school he started working with Riddim Force, before running a leg of Lee's Unlimited in the States. He was then approached by Black Chiney to do some of their international dates, which took him to places such as Canada and most of the Caribbean, becoming well known as Chip Lee the Performa and gaining a lot of popularity. After Deejaying at so many venues and places Lee decided it was time for a change. "I was playing for big crowds but not fulfilling what I feel the Most High ordained for my Life." He then started a radio program on a local radio station in Miami called 'JAH Guide'. "I went through a very Spiritual time and decided the only way this music thing was going to last is if I do it for a higher purpose." He soon linked up with 'Karib Link TV' and they put together a production called 'Sight and Sound.' This innovation got great recognition cause not only were the people hearing the songs but now visual was added. While this was very successful, it was time for more change/growth and Jamaica was calling, so he moved home settling
in Portland. It was in this time that Lee Tafari discovered his Love for song writing and the guitar, carrying it everywhere with him as he learned to play.

In 2013 Lee Tafari united with Haile Conscious, this union brought him to California a number of times, touring the West Coast - Acoustically, and with The Upliftment Band. On Nov. 1st 2014 they released his debut acoustic album ‘UP & UP’ Lee Tafari Unplugged.

The journey continues in 2017... with the brand new release of 2 songs ~ PEACE MAKERS and EARTH ANTHEM feat. Prezident Brown both recorded with master musician Tuff Lion. As always with his focus fully turned towards sharing purely positive vibration. Steadfast on the mission, he brings something rich and refreshing to the music, a truly humble and peaceful servant, a bright light sent from THE MOST HIGH - Lee is Unlimited
