Founded by the legendary Duke Reid, Treasure Isle remains one of Jamaica’s most iconic record labels with a stunning back catalogue of classic Ska and Rocksteady hits and a unique sound driven by the intense musical passion of its founder. Now dipping into the vaults and selecting the finest Treasure Isle gems, guitar man and musical director Ciyo Brown teams up with the award winning Winston Reedy (The Cimarons plus solo hits ‘Paradise in Your Eyes’ and ‘Dim The Lights’) and exciting new vocal talent Aleighcia Scott (who has already opened for Maxi Priest, Tippa Irie, Lady Leshurr, Professor Green and Soul II Soul).
All set to be a roadblock…. ‘BABA BOOM’!
A former member of the pioneering U.K. reggae ensemble Cimarons, vocalist Winston Reedy embarked on a solo career during the 1980s. Primarily known for his smooth single “Dim the Light,” the singer specialises in a soul-inflected lover’s rock sound, as best heard on 2005’s LOVE THING. He remains a well-regarded figure in British reggae.
