 THE WAILERS
Bob Marley and the Wailers recorded, toured and made history together between 1972 and 1981. It was Bob Marley himself that requested the Wailers stayed together, and when he instructed Aston 'Familyman' Barrett to ‘keep The Wailers together’ he made it his life's dedication. Today, carrying on the mission are legitimate members, children-of-legends and a host of immensely talented musicians – it truly is a lineup of reggae royalty.The afore-mentioned Aston Barrett Jr delivers startling echoes of his uncle’s (Carlton ‘Carly’ Barrett) one drop drumming sound. Guitarist Donald Kinsey is joined by Wendel ‘Junior Jazz’ Ferraro, shaping that classic sonic identity. Owen ‘Dreadie’ Reid and Andres Lopezadd yet more quality to an incredible line up that also includes the youngest of the earliest formation of the Wailers, Tyrone Downie, saxophone player Glen Dacosta and Dennis Thompson, the engineer who was there from the very beginnings of the band, Anne-Marie Thompson (a gospel singer of stunning ability) and Tamara Barnes who has been in the music industry for over 20 years, providing backing vocals in studio and on stage for I-Threes, Jimmy Cliff, Ky-Mani Marley, Beres Hammond and Freddie McGregor among many others. Together they bring the smoothest backing vocals, contributing to this unique melting pot, both classic and excitingly fresh at the same time. Last Year The Wailers released their album 'One World', the first new music from the band in over 25 years. 'One World' includes The Wailers’ most recent single “One World, One Prayer”, produced by 19 x Grammy Award winner, Emilio Estefan, and co-written by Emilio Estefan alongside Aston Barret Jr and Josh David Barrett. The tracks on this project blend together generations of reggae music to sound current and modern while still being familiar to fans, and features  some awesome guest artists, Julian Marley, Natyruts, Paul Anthony, Emily Estefan, and Shaggy. Expect a song-list lifted from classic Wailers tracks fused with a selection of tracks from their new album.
