2015 Rebel Salute to Honor Jacob Miller and Inner Circle

PROMOTERS of the annual Rebel Salute show will pay homage to influential roots singer Jacob Miller during its 2015 renewal which takes place January 16-17 at Richmond Estate, St Ann.


Chief organiser Tony Rebel told the Jamaica Observer that Inner Circle, the band Miller was lead singer of during the mid and late 1970s, will be a key part of the tribute. So too, Third World whose members were also closely associated with him.

Miller, one of the stars of the 1970s roots-reggae explosion, died in 1980 in an auto accident at age 27.

The Manchester-born vocalist started his career at Studio One in the late 1960s with the hit song, Love is a Message. He blossomed early in the next decade with a number of cutting-edge tracks for musician/producer Augustus Pablo including Keep on Knocking (an update of Love is a Message) and Each One Teach One.

But he really hit his stride with Inner Circle, led by the Lewis brothers, Ian and Roger. They had a golden run with hit songs like Tired fi Lick Weed in a Bush, Tenement Yard and Everything is Great.
