About Junior Reid
To date, Jamaican-born singer Junior Reid, a devout Rastafarian regarded by many as a messenger from Jah, is best known for the hit singles ‘Foreign Mind’, ‘One Blood’, ‘Boom Shak-a-Lak’ and ‘Listen to the Voices’. He also served as the lead singer for the Grammy Award-winning Reggae group Black Uhuru.
Born on the 6th of June, Delroy “Junior” Reid grew up in the Waterhouse district of West Kingston. Junior began his career at an early age, gaining his initial inspiration from a tough upbringing. He recorded his first single ‘Know Myself’ at age fourteen for the late singer Hugh Mundell, released in the U.K. on the Greensleeves label. He then went on to form his own band, The Voice of Progress, and after a local hit with ‘Minibus Driver’ the group’s success was established with the album of the same name.
At the age of eighteen, Junior was asked to join Black Uhuru as lead singer. The group completed their transformation to international status while he was a member, nominated twice for a Grammy Award in the Reggae category.
After many changes in the music business and an agreed separation among the members of Black Uhuru, Junior returned to the solo arena and started his own production company, J.R. Productions.
