Lord of the Dancehall

You may not have heard of Tony Kelly, but you have probably heard him

In the late Eighties, he toured with Ziggy Marley during the latter's Conscious Partypeak, then went on the road with reggae balladeer Maxi Priest. For both artists, he was a jack-of-all-trades, from playing multiple instruments to DJing and dancing. Understandably, he soon chose to return to the comforts of the studio, and first earned stateside attention with Patra's first album, Queen of the Pack.

Kelly currently splits his time between Davie, where he lives with his wife, and his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica. Why doesn't he live in New York or London, to name two other dancehall hot spots? "Nah ... I don't like cold," he says dismissively. "Miami is the place for me."
