Max Romeo was born in 1947 in Saint Ann in Jamaica and at the age of 14, he left school and family to perfect his art and feed his passion for the music and he recorded his first 45 tours in 1965.


From this moment things accelerated : he signed a contract with Bunny Lee, one of the biggest producer of this time in Jamaica, and the hit “Wet Dream " released in 1969 gave to Max Romeo international success. He met the producer Lee Perry (who also produced Bob Marley) and released hits as "Macabee Version", "Jordan River" or "Deacon Wife". Then he signed a contract with Island Records where were released 2 very important albums: "Reconstruction" and especially “War Inna Babylon” with the Upsetters in 1976, including one of the most famous tracks of reggae ! After more quiet period in recordings, he returns to studio at the end of 1990s, and during the 2000s, 3 new albums were produced: "Perilous time" and “Something is wrong" still defending his values against "babylon" and obliging message for the future generations, and the in 2004, he recorded "Little Time for Jah" in the legendary studios Tuff Gong in Kingston, served well by the robust production of Clive Hunt.


Since, Max Romeo made regularly European tours which met a strong audience, and between two periods of tour, he prefers to return in Jamaica to cultivate his ground and take care of his family.


Quel amateur de reggae music ne connaît pas Max Romeo ? Des Upsetters à Lee Perry, en passant par les Rolling Stones aux italiens de Tribu Acustica, le chanteur charismatique a multiplié les expériences et les collaborations musicales depuis 1965.


Né en 1947 à St Ann, Max Roméo enregistre son premier single au succès international, "Wet Dream", chez Bunny Lee en 1969. C'est ensuite chez Lee Perry que vont naître les albums War Inna Babylon (1976) et Reconstruction (1978).


Après les succès immense à travers le monde de ses hits "Chase the Devil" et "War Inna Babylon", Max Romeo nous revient en 2004 avec A Little Time For Jah. Enregistrés à Tuff Gong à Kingston et bien servis par la solide production de Clive Hunt, les morceaux bénéficient d’un son clair et percutant, et font de cet album l'un des meilleurs de Max Romeo ces dernières années.


Depuis, Max Romeo se produit régulièrement en Europe car, même s'il préfère revenir en Jamaïque cultiver sa terre et s’occuper de sa famille, il ne se lasse pas de la scène pour le plus grand plaisir de tous !
