Hailing from Jamaica, Winston Reedy is renowned as one the most successful and popular UK based Reggae singers. The Cimarons was the first band to play reggae music in Biafra (known now as Nigeria), Japan and Spain. In 1970 Winston joined The Cimarons as lead vocalist. They recorded an album in Jamaica called On The Rock, from which their version of Bob Marley's 'Talking Blues' went to number 1 in Jamaica. He is the only reggae singer outside of Jamaica to make number 1 in Jamaica. The Cimarons toured Europe, the Middle East, Far East, Japan and the Caribbean. This created the opportunity for Winston to work with some of the industry's top names, including Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown, Dennis Alcapone, The Pioneers and Paul McCartney. This resulted in Winston appearing in the video of Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder's collaborative 'Ebony And Ivory', a worldwide hit. The Cimarons also appeared in a film called Black Joy. Winston's first solo single after leaving The Cimarons was 'Daughter Of Zion', which immediately soared to the top of the Black Echoes reggae chart. He is best known for his lovers rock hit single, "Dim The Light" (1983), one of the most popular UK lovers rock titles.He also had great success with 'Paradise In Your Eyes', 'Baby Love' and 'Moi Emma Oh' produced by the great Jackie Mittoo. Dim The Light topped the Black Echoes reggae chart for nine weeks and remains one of the most popular UK reggae hits of all. He was voted Best British Male Vocalist by the listeners of BBC Radio London for three consecutive years, 1982, 1983, 1984. Winston Reedy with his band, The Hard Rock, was invited to tour alongside UB40, and following on from this signed a contract with the group's recording label Dep International. His last tour with the group was also the setting for a video called 'Winston Reedy Live' which was later broadcast on the programme Cutting Edge, courtesy of US MTV. He has played at venues such as Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, The o2 Arena, and Wembley Stadium, alongside acts such as Bob Dylan, Santana and UB40. Winston has performed at festivals such as Reggae Sunsplash Jamaica, Sierra Nevada Festival California, Skamouth England, and Rototom to name a few.
