Little Roy is a vital part of the Jamaican musical legacy, and one of the primary architects who laid down what we now know as ROOTS REGGAE ERA. It was Prince Buster who first gave him this moniker despite the fact that his effortless riddim-laced song ‘REGGAE’ still failed to find favor with fans.
Despite his prominence within reggae’s rich history, Little Roy remains an undiscovered figure to many knowledgeable reggae historians. During the 1970s, he contributed a number of undeniable classics that remain fixtures in Jamaican reggae roots classics today.

At the ripe old age of sixteen years, Little Roy became Jamaica’s first-ever artist to achieve success with his debut hit record, “Bongo Nyah”. The first hit song about the Rastafari movement that made waves across the island with a commercial breakthrough.
Little Roy worked closely with the Wailers and producer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Together they produced notable records such as ‘Tribal War’, featuring bassist Dennis Brown. Through this encounter and others over a forty-year career, Roy has made an indelible mark on music history!
Earl Lowe (Little Roy) was born, the youngest of nine children, in the Witfield Town area of Kingston, Jamaica on the 25th February 1950. Influenced by his friend Leroy Sibbles (who became lead singer for the Heptones) and his older brother Campbell, the young Earl began writing songs from an early age.
