About Freddie McGregor

Freddie McGregor (born 27 June 1956, Clarendon, Jamaica) has been variously a singer, musician and producer. According to Allmusic he is one of reggae’s most durable and soulful singers, with an incredibly steady career that started all the way back in the 1960s, when he was just seven years old.

In 1963 he joined with Ernest Wilson and Peter Austin to form The Clarendonians, and began to record for the Studio One label. McGregor worked with producer Niney the Observer during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

In 1975, McGregor converted to Rastafari, which had a profound impact on his music. He is a member of the Twelve Tribes organization.

His popularity soared in the early 1980s with the release of “Bobby Babylon”. Other popular hits of McGregor’s include “Big Ship”, “Push Comes to Shove”, “Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely” and “I Was Born a Winner”; as well as cover versions of many early reggae standards. He has also worked with producers Junjo Lawes, Linval Thompson, and Gussie Clarke. McGregor has also toured extensively for many years.
