In 2019, CLINTON FEARON celebrated 50 years of music and career. He joined the GLADIATORS in 1969 when the Jamaican reggae band started playing music. They welcomed the young artist as singer, guitarist and then as a bass player and vocalist. The band quickly grew and became a reference in the 70’s with tracks like « Chatty Chatty Mouth » and « Rich Man Poor Man » classics interpreted by CLINTON FEARON himself. At that time, he played the bass alongside the biggest reggae producers like COXSONE and LEE PERRY, demonstrating his numerous advantages and being always productive.
At the end of the 80’s, the GLADIATORS toured in the USA and CLINTON FEARON was of course part of it but started to feel the urge to begin a solo career. In 1989 he released a first EP with the new band THE DEFENDERS composed by some of the GLADIATORS’ members. But his solo career really started in 1994, the occasion for a large audience to discover a mystical voice. His albums like « MI AN’ MI GUITAR » (2005), « THIS MORNING » (2016), and the last one « HISTORY SAY » (September 2019) have made history. Waiting for another album, CLINTON FEARON is often on tour in Europe and in France, a country that he particularly loves. Each show commands respect and admiration for this great reggae music artist who found how to cross decades with talent. One of the last Jamaican artists still able to produce new classics.
