Freddie McGregor began to play when he was, believe it or not, just seven years old. It was at that age that he became a member of "The Clarendonians." It was a harmony group and McGregor hopped on to provide backup as a singer. The group was working with none other than "Clement Dodd," the renowned producer who had the iconic "Studio One" label at that time.
The time he spent with "The Clarendonians" provided McGregor with invaluable experience at a very early age. The group disbanded in 1960’s and McGregor went on to team up with "Ernest ‘Fitzroy’ Wilson" to incept his own group named "Freddie and Fitzroy." The two of them would spend countless hours practicing. They also recorded songs like "Do Good and Good Will Follow You" and "Why Did You Do It."
Freddie McGregor began to spend a lot of time at Studio One to hone his musical skills. He used to play drums and work on his singing skills there. The arrival of 1970’s saw McGregor develop his own style of singing that although was reggae but had a bit of a soul styled theme to it. He spent time performing with the likes of "Soul Syndicate" and "Generation Gap" while jotting down some of his own tracks as well.
It was in the middle to latter half of that decade that Freddie McGregor first stepped out of the shadows entered the world of mainstream music. "Rastaman Camp," "Zion Chant," "I am a Rasta," "Natural Collie," "Jogging," "Africa Here I Come," "Mark of the Beast" and "Sergeant Brown" among many others were released. All these songs did fairly well in his native Jamaica and played a big part in him turning McGregor into a bit of a sensation there.
It was in the year 1977 that he came out with his first album titled "Mr. McGregor." He followed that up with an LP which had a combination of a few old and new tracks. Both these releases turned out to be huge hits in Jamaica which in turn announced the arrival of McGregor among the ranks of the most promising young talents of that decade.
That early success landed him spots with other more established stars which raised his profile even further. Then in 1981 he released "Big Ship," the song that changed his life forever. The track was a huge hit on the international front turned him into one of the most sought after stars of that era just after the sad demise of the legend "Bob Marley."
His next LP was titled "Big Ship" as well and it hit the music stores in the year 1982. It was another huge success that went on to do very well on the commercial front. "Come on Over" came out next year and carried on with that trend. Freddie McGregor then decided to give his music a bit of a pop tinge and the next two releases "Across the Border" and "Same Boat" were a result of that change. They did quite well and solidified his status as a very versatile artist.
McGregor released "That Girl," and "Just Don’t Want to be Lonely’ to immense acclaim. He then formed his own record label "Big Ship" before the decade drew to a close. Three volumes of "Jamaican Classics" were released, all of which were very well received. He laid low for most part of the next decade but came back with a bang after the turn of the century with "Signature." "Anything for You" then came out and earned a Grammy nomination for its efforts.
Freddie McGregor’s latest release "Di Captain" was released in 2012 and it had all the hallmarks that have made this incredible artist so successful. He has stood the test of time to maintain his status as one of the most prolific reggae artists of all time. He is now on tour once again so this is your chance to book Freddie McGregor tickets and catch him perform live and exclusive.
