Hopeton Lewis

Jamaican singer who shot to fame in the mid 60?s with ?Take It Easy?, a track that perfectly captured the mood in Jamaica at the time and heralded in the new era of rocksteady, slower paced than ska. Another hit, ?Sound and Pressure? soon followed. In 1970 he won the prestigious Jamaican Song Festival with ?Boom Shacka Lacka?. He then became the vocalist for Byron Lee?s Dragonaires and recorded a number of tracks at Lee?s Dynamic studio including ?Grooving Out On Life? and reggae versions of funk tunes such as ?Express Yourself? and ?Funky Kingston? (based on The Beginning Of The End?s Funky Nassau?).
