Gregory Isaacs And Half Pint Receive IRAWM Awards

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 24May07

3 artists were honored this year at the International Reggae and World Music Awards – Half Pint, Gregory Isaacs, and Doug E Fresh all took home the special Producer’s Respect Award. Half Pint has worked with King Jammy, Bobby “Digital” Dixon, Steelie & Cleevie among many other big name producers to beautifully combine the best elements of reggae and ragga music styles. The riddims feature the pounding bass beats and steppers rhythms of ragga/dancehall while Half Pint’s vocals have the uplifting positive vibrations of reggae and ska. Gregory Isaacs continues to bring soul to roots reggae music, producing hit after hit since he first took the stage in the early 70’s. Both artists are Jamaican legends due to consistently keeping a positive in rebel music. One of Half Pint’s first singles, “Winsome” was covered by the Rolling Stones in 1987. Other big hits include “Greetings” (one of my favorites!), “Freedom Fighter”, and “Level The Vibes”. Gregory Isaacs has sung absolutely amazing soulful songs such as “Night Nurse” which was remixed by Kruder & Dorfmeister into a powerful, emotional tune that will floor you if you listen to it on a good soundsystem, “Gone A Jail” which seems to be sung exclusively for Shockout Records (Oakland CA!), and “Clash”. Everything that Isaacs sings is dripping with emotion and soulful crooning…
