Justin Hinds Biography

One of the pioneers of ska and rocksteady, Justin Hinds and the Dominoes (Dennis Sinclair and Junior Dixon) were arguably the most successful group for producer Duke Reid in that period. The group, drawing heavily from the Bible and popular Jamaican proverbs, recorded some of the best known ska tunes including King Samuel, The Higher Monkey Climb, Jump Out A Frying Pan and Baddaration.

But it was the advent of the rock steady era which gave Hinds most success and it was in this period that he recorded his signature tune, Carry Go Bring Come.

Hinds was an active performer until his death, regularly touring North America and Europe, interest in his music reinvigorated through his appearance on many reggae compilations.

Born 1942; died of lung cancer March 2005.
