Beenie Man

contact booking : michel@mediacom-tour.com

Beenie Man, né Anthony Moses Davis en Aout 1973, passe son enfance dans le ghetto de Waterhouse, un des plus chauds de Kingston. Son oncle Sydney Wolfe est le batteur de Jimmy Cliff et lui fait découvrir Bob Marley, Peter Tosh ou encore Black Uhuru, avant de le faire débuter dans la musique dès l’âge de 5 ans ! Il se fait connaître dans les Sound Systems aux côtés de Bunny Lee et Prince Jammy, et  à 7 ans il sort son premier album !!

 

Artiste prolifique, ses albums obtiennent de nombreux Grammy Awards mais c'est le tube international Who Am I sorti en 1998 sur l'album Many Moods of Moses qui en fait l'un des Kings of Dancehall autant en Jamaïque que dans le reste du monde.

Beenie Man rightly proclaimed himself, King Of The Dancehall. Born Moses Davis in Kingston, Jamaica on August 1973, he is better know around the world as Beenie Man and he is the dancehall movement personified.

 

He was involved in the music industry from a young age, starting toasting at the age of five, and was encouraged by his uncle Sydney Wolfe, who played drums for Jimmy Cliff.  Releasing his first record, "Too Fancy" at the tender age of 7-years-old in 1981, Beenie has not only been at the forefront of the genre ever since, but has been largely responsible for growing it into the international phenomenon it is today.

 

Beenie Man had his first number one single in Jamaica in 1993 with "Matie", and he won the DJ of the Year Award the same year, the first of eight consecutive awards including the Grammy-nominated Many Moods Of Moses and it's single "Who Am I ?" in 1997 which stands among the best album of the genre.
