Reggae Powerhouse Band

Reggae Powerhouse Band has been a long time coming, everyone involved with the band has been on the music scene for years.

As for me, oh yes, I am Leroy Scarlet; I started my musical journey in the early '70s back in the days of Kilimanjaro when I was about twelve years old.

I followed Kilimanjaro around lifting the boxes and stuff, until I started singing, then went on to recording songs with Sly and Robbie. Not long after that I started producing. I have since produced music and recorded songs with almost everyone in the business including giants like Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Frankie Paul, Beres Hammond, Bennie Man, Bounty Killa, Sizzla, Capleton, Luciano, etc. the list is endless. So as it stands, this journey hasn’t just started, it has been a long time in the making.

In putting the band together, one of my greatest influence was Duckie Simpson, from Black Uhuru. I work with musicians like Speckle, a well known musician, (he is like the next Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare) on live drum right now; he’s the man! He is really the backbone of the band as he organizes the other musicians.
 
The first album is almost finished; the band itself plays a lot of tracks, and the album includes musicians like Sly and Robbie,  the Firehouse Crew, Bobby Digital, and different producers on board producing tracks for the band.
 
Cordel Agen Dunnah is one of the lead singers; he is an Antiguan with a unique sound. I met him in Antigua and put him on the stage, watched him perform and loved his sound so I decided he was going be one of us. The next lead singer is Pernel Winchester from Tobago. I take singers from different island to get different sounds and different ideas because we a trying to create a unique sound for the Reggae Powerhouse Band.

Listed below are our six completed tracks; we are half way towards completing the twelve-track debut album.
 
Nothing nar Gwaan is a collaboration with Sizzla. On February 4, 2018, online magazine, Reggae Vibes wrote, “Reggae Powerhouse Band … latest offering is this solid effort in combination with Sizzla. The internationally known and respected artist describes the difficulties of surviving in the system. With catchy melodies and relevant lyrics, this song comes at an excellent time and is expected to resonate well with an authentic reggae audience.”
 
‘Roots’ was done with Luciano 'The Messenger,' it is something special indeed. Love for the Woman is already creating a buzz with over 50,000 views on our Facebook page, with Skanking and Hello not far behind
 
Later on we will also be releasing a twenty-track album called TRIBUTE TO THE LEGENDS, The Past and the Present. We are trying to do as many covers as possible on this album, such as tracks from Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaac and Dennis Brown, because it really is about the legends.
 
It’s really gonna be something, look out for it ~ coming soon!
