Beres Hammond Tickets
The mention of reggae music is generally held synonymous with Bob Marley and his band “The Wailers”. However, amongst the scintillating stars of the reggae universe is an icon that has radiated his romantic ballads for four decades. Beres Hammond
has remained true to his penchant for instilling live instrumentation in his music, often penning the lyrics of his songs himself. Though he has typically centered his music on the genre of “Lovers Rock”, he has also experimented with hip hop fusion, dancehall, conscious roots reggae and “straight-up contemporary R&B”.
Beres Hammond Tickets Information
A Jamaican native, Beres Hammond
was born in 1955 and was raised up by his father on a steady soulful diet of American R&B dished out by the likes of Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. After coming of age, Beres developed a sweet tooth for Jamaican ska and rocksteady music, particularly the kind served by Alton Ellis, Peter Tosh and the Heptones . He spread his reggae wings in local talent contests and soared in 1975 as the lead singer of the band, Zap Pow . Soon after he took solo flight and released his first album Soul Reggae in 1976 and struck out on his own three years later. Undergoing a setback for a brief period whilst working as a session singer, Beres Hammond
collaborated with Joe Gibbs and Willie Lindo, who also produced for Zap Pow, and cut “Just a Man” in 1980 and “Comin’ at You” a year later, respectively with each producer.
The 1980s saw Beres Hammond
’s reggae career snowball, not just at home in Jamaica but also in the global market. After forming his own record company by the name of Harmony Records in 1985, Beres pumped out dancehall tunes such as the hits “Groovy Little Thing” and “What One Dance Can Do”. His continued collaboration with Lindo proved be the golden ticket, and resulted in another hit in the form of “Settling Down” from Beres’s 1986 self-titled album. The late eighties brought about a softening down of Beres disco laced vocal discharges as well his move to the Big Apple. Numbers such as “Have a Nice Week End” and the 1988 duet with Maxi Priest, “How Can We Ease the Pain” quintessentially characterize this transition. The latter served as a sort of closure for a harrowing episode in Beres’s life that entailed thieves tying him up in his house and then cleaning the place out.
The heat of the dancehall beat started to build up once again in Beres Hammond
and after returning permanently to Jamaica in the 1990s, he signed on to Penthouse Records to thump out the smash hit “Tempted to Touch”. Making it big in the US and UK, the song set the stage for the 1992 album, A Love Affair” as well as a string of five other records all throughout the nineties. With Sweetness in 1993 through VP Records and In Control a year later on Elektra Records, Beres Hammond
pushed his 1996 album Love From a Distance through his own Harmony House record label with Getting Stronger and A Day In The Life following suit in the next two years. Exiting the 1990s as a “Lovers Rock” music sensation, Beres purposefully stepped into the new millennium and joined forces with Wyclef Jean for 2001’s Music is Life. In 2007, Beres Hammond
graced the stage at the opening ceremony of the 2007 Cricket world Cup along with other fellow Jamaican musicians such as reggae rappers Shaggy and Sean Paul.Beres Hammond
