Lee Scratch Perry

A true living legend – producer, songwriter, businessman, singer and innovator Lee “Scratch” Perry is one of the central figures in the history and evolution of reggae and dub music.

Perry was the first producer to ever appear as an artist on an album cover, proving the creative capabilities of the studio as an art form itself. Producing music from his simple home studio, the Black Ark, and distributing most of it on his own independent Upsetter label, Perry inspired producers across all genres of music. In addition to his own trailblazing music, Lee Perry has produced hits for the Bob Marley & The Wailers, Junior Byles, Max Romeo, the Heptones, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Murvin, and The Clash.
