Hey, watch me start some #$%^...

Harrison Stafford has the best voice in Reggae, PERIOD. All that do not agree with this evident truth have no musical taste, thereby invalidating your opinion.

... see what I did there?

Beres Rules for me followed by Gregory & Dennis
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 09, 2013 02:16AM
I see what you did there...
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 09, 2013 02:17AM
Al Campbell. My #1 honestly and without apology.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 09, 2013 02:18AM
Bim Sherman a close second. I'm with G-Tron on that one.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 09, 2013 02:20AM
A testament to people having different tastes.... I really prefer not to hear Sugar Minott. No joke. And I prefer not to hear Tempo riddim either. So there.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 09, 2013 04:30AM
GTRON, love Mr. Sherman's voice, always been one my favorites.

I gotta agree with the late Bob Marley and put Dennis Brown at the top.

2nd for me would be Garnett Silk... so smooth!

Following would be Beres, Mr. Isaacs, Luciano (not neccesarily in that order). Bim Sherman gets a shout out also!

Down the road, I think it will be safe to put Romain Virgo in this list. The young man got chops!
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 10, 2013 03:02AM
1. Michael Rose
2. Barrington Levi
3. Romain Virgo
4. Dennis Brown
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?

I have to agree but just because I'm listening to him at the moment.

One of my favorites is Tabby Diamonds.
Both live and on record. Sweet, sweet voice.

Ken Boothe, Leroy Sibbles & Cornell Campbell are also on top of my list of many.
Thanks to SNWMF for brining these artists.thumbs up

This might be more mind-boggling than Smoka's hatred of Beres.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 11, 2013 09:04PM
My best voices would include:

Bunny Rugs
Maxi Priest
Barrington Levy
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 12, 2013 12:44AM

Nishka!

Amazing female vocalist who has worked with Alpha & Omega. To the best of my knowledge, pretty much exclusively.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 13, 2013 10:24PM
List could be endless but a few are:

Dennis Brown
Jacob Miller
David Hinds
Freddie McGregor
Cocoa Tea

Chronixx
Etana
Tarrus
Duane Stephenson
Prezident Brown

I don't want to claim the man can sing, but the topic is "favorite voices" and Buju has one of my favorite, most distinct voices in reggae

Someone else already mentioned Maxi Priest...he definitely is an underrated talent
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 14, 2013 07:35PM
Surprised no one mentioned Bushman. I listed Luciano above, but actually think Bushman has a better voice.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 14, 2013 08:15PM
Gotta add Bitty McLean to the list...good call tahoearmada
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 16, 2013 02:10AM
I agree with VgVgirl, Don Carlos and then of course Nomo's suggestion of Dezarie! Those two came to my mind first.
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
November 16, 2013 05:20PM
Winston Jarrett - His voice, as one would expect, has changed as he has aged, but his voice back in the the 70s and 80s is my favorite ever.

Dennis Brown

Jalani Horton from Bambu Station

Catching up on some old reading...

Agree with so many of the choices above, but somehow nobody mentioned Larry Marshall???

And although i too would have to put Marcia Griffiths at or near the top, i don't think we can forget about Judy Mowatt or my personal favorite, Hortense Ellis:



Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
December 10, 2014 10:48PM
Glen Washington

and Dezarie - of course
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
December 14, 2014 08:39PM
Phyllis Dillon
Alton Ellis
Johnny Nash
Jimmy Cliff
Janet Kay
Carroll Thompson
Sandra Cross
Louisa Mark
Barry Biggs
Gregory Isaacs
John Holt
Ken Boothe
Marcia Griffiths
Bitty McLean

Just to name a few, so many great singers in Reggae's history
Re: Favorite voices in Reggae?
December 14, 2014 10:02PM
I think the thread topic is so broad
you could say unique voices in reggae
which would be eek prince fari edi, Fitzroy, eskeder tafari, Pablo moses, congos,. ghost etc

and then quality vocalists like delroy alton dennis freddie beres Marcia

and then ones that are just a fave of yours but might not be unique or the strongest, but they just click w/ your taste

a list of faves is always good to revive a sleepy message board
