Johnny Osbourne is one of the most popular Jamaican reggae and dancehall singer of all time.
Rising to success in the late 1970s and mid-1980s, his album Truths And Rights was a huge roots reggae hit, featuring timeless tracks “Jah Promise” and the titular “Truths and Rights”.
He also enjoyed big hits with covers of U.S. soul tunes like “Ready Or Not” and Earth Wind and Fire’s “Reasons”. Thanks to his nickname of ‘Dancehall Godfather’, Osbourne is the most in-demand vocalist for dubplates, best known for his mid-1980s dancehall reggae hits “Buddy Bye” (based on King Jammy’s Sleng Teng riddim), “Ice Cream Love” and “Water Pumping”.
Johnny Osbourne will be embarking on a tour in 2019, with the Uppercut Band performing alongside him for most of the dates.
