A Little History of Peter Tosh

Peter Tosh was born Winston Hubert McIntosh on October 19, 1944, in Grange Hill, Westmoreland, Jamaica.   He later moved to the notorious slum of Trench Town (so named because it was built on the “trenches” that drained the sewage of nearby Kingston) at the age of 16.

His mother strongly influenced him, and her sensibility would become apparent in both his lyrics and views; she was particularly concerned that he should have a Christian upbringing.

He attended the local church regularly and gained his experience there singing in the choir and learning to play the organ. He formed a sort of musical apprenticeship that prepared him for his subsequent career.

Peter Tosh’s example, as both artist and activist, continues to inspire creators and idealists around the world. He was and is a true leader whose music and message inspires people on every continent throughout the world.
