About Prezident Brown:
Prezident Brown (Fitz Cotterell) was born in the hills of Clarendon, Jamaica. His mother called him Junior Ranking because he would grab the microphone and chant at schoolyard and country dances. He was first known as Slim Brown because of his resemblance to and similar DJ style to his mentor, U Brown. The most formative influence on Prezident Brown was producer and sound system operator Jack Ruby. Ruby saw something special in young Slim Brown; he took Slim Brown under his wing, re-named him Prezident Brown and appointed him resident M.C. of his Hi-Power Sound System. In 1989 Prezident Brown began recording with Grove Music and Roof International but it was Barry O’Hare’s label, X-Rated, that provided a home base for Prezident Brown and with Runn Records helped launch his career in Europe. X-Rated took off just as a massive roots revival swept across Jamaica, washing gun and slackness lyrics out of the dance halls, paving the way for conscious reggae music. Prezident Brown has toured extensively performing on some of music’s most prestigious stages. His live show is one of the best in reggae today. An amazing performer and lyricist who has great chemistry with his band, a crew of Nor Cal’s greatest musicians don’t miss such this occasion to show your love and support. His latest album is: I SOUND IS FROM CREATION.
