We are pleased to announce we are now booking for Droop Lion.
Along with Garnet Silk, Chronnix and Coffee, Droop Lion is one of the new generation of conscious roots reggae musicians from Jamaica, who has been making a big impact on the European and American touring circuits.
Droop Lion’s hit singles, “Mama Soon Come Back” (a tribute to his mother gone too soon) and “Freeway” – inspired by the tragic 2010 events which unfolded in the political stronghold of Tivoli Gardens in Kingston, catapulted Droop Lion to the general public in Jamaica. Following the success of these singles, and brimming with enthusiasm, Droop Lion did his first International tour, opening for Capleton – 36 dates throughout South Pacific, New Caledonia, France, Italy, Germany and Denmark .
Droop Lion soon came to the attention of Roots Reggae mystics, the Gladiators, who hand-picked him for an almost sacred role. Droop Lion would replace Albert Griffith, the legendary singer and one of the founders of the Gladiators, a band formed in 1967. He went on to record a full album with the Gladiators, and tour Europe, USA and South America with them. He has also recorded with the legendary Jamaican band, Israel Vibration.
Droop Lion’s 2022 tour will be with the Gladiators and billed as Droop Lion and the Gladiators (TBC).
