Bunny Wailer

contact booking : michel@mediacom-tour.com

Bunny Wailer, de son vrai nom Neville O'Riley Livingston, est né en Jamaïque en 1947. Il est l'un des trois membres fondateurs des Wailers avec Peter Tosh et Bob Marley, qu'il rencontre alors qu'il est enfant.

 

Excellent chanteur, il apporte pendant plus de 10 ans sa contribution au groupe mythique formé par Bob Marley, en tant que compositeur, auteur et chanteur. En 1973, il quitte le groupe, préférant se concentrer sur sa carrière solo, et en 1976 il publie son premier album, Blackheart Man. Suivent les albums Protest, en 1977, et Struggle, en 1979, ainsi qu’une participation à la bande originale du film Rockers avec le tube Love Fire.

 

Toujours actif sur la scène reggae, comme en témoigne sa présence inoubliable dans le film Made In Jamaica (2007), Bunny Wailer livre des shows exceptionnels partout où il passe.

As a founding member of the Wailers, and the trio's only surviving member, Bunny Wailer, has become a respected elder statesmen of the Jamaican music scene. His vocal and composing contributions to the Wailers had helped seen to that, while over the years Wailer has endeavoured to keep the group's memory alive. But beyond the Wailers' legacy, and his own solo career, the artist has also made a significant mark beyond the music scene.


Born Neville O'Riley Livingston on April 10, 1947, in Kingston, Jamaica, Bunny Wailer met Bob Marley and Peter Tosh as a child. After a successful audition for Coxsone Dodd, their career took off immediately. By 1973, the Wailers were untouchable, the biggest reggae band in Jamaica, and on the verge of an international breakthrough. Tensions were rising within the Wailers, and eventually Bunny Wailer quit the band, one year before Tosh did. The Wailers were no more but Bunny Wailer has been pursuing a solo career, with his own label, Solomonic, and his first solo album, the phenomenal Black Man Heart, is filled with a clutch of crucial songs, as "Battering Down Sentence" and "Rasta Man."
