Living Truth Creates A Musical Evolution On Reggae Music

Custom Search

Living Truth - With a career spanning three decades, and having earned a ringside seat to reggae music's dramatic evolution, multi-talented reggae artist, Leroy "Living Truth" Ridgway,  can definitely stand and be counted.

Possessing a voice that is as distinctive as it is melodious, this singer and song-writer has honed his skills at the feet of many of the genre's icons, while carving out his own unique and remarkable niche.

Living Truth, a name which is self-explanatory, defines the artist's persona, his lyrical content and his commitment to guiding those who have willingly joined him in his quest for truth.

The grandson of a Church of God Minister who hails from the parish of Westmoreland, Living Truth, like many others before him, experienced his first taste of stardom while singing on the church choir. It was there that his talent was recognized, appreciated and nurtured. It came as no surprise when at the age of sixteen Ridgway entered a talent show in May Pen  and placed third with  "Red Sun",  a song that he had composed all by himself.

Early in his career, Living Truth auditioned for pioneering reggae producer, Bunny Lee of the Federal Studios. Impressed with his vocals, Lee encouraged Living Truth to record "Dreadlocks Man", a song which went on to enjoy appreciable chart success locally and served to whet the appetite of the artiste for international recognition.

Living Truth immigrated to the United States shortly thereafter, with a burning determination to devote his time to his craft and reap success. Between 1977-80, he entered several  competitions in the New York area and won first place with "Write It Down" and "Come One Come All" and the second place with "Ring the Freedom Bell" in the New York Reggae Festival and song competition.

A high point of Living Truth's career was a meeting with reggae legend, the late Bob Marley, in New York during Marley's final tour in 1981. It proved to be a meeting that had a profound impact on Living Truth, whose songs were imbued with a message of empowerment and positive living. That meeting with Marley served to empower the singer and bols

ter his  conviction that musically he was on the right path.

Living Truth is convinced that his voice is an important force in the reggae genre and he is ready to take his career to exciting new heights as he diligently continues the journey he started as a youngster in a little country church in rural Westmoreland.

Armed with an ever-expanding catalog and a wealth of experience this singer and song-writer is ready once again to inject his many fans with a healthy dose of "Living Truth".
