Daddy Teacha ranks as one of the UK’s pioneer ‘Nu Roots’ vocalists.
Starting out in the UK, with Midlands Sound System ‘Turbo Charge’ in the late 1970’s and early 80’s he cemented his reputation by recording with seminal Dub outfit Alpha & Omega.
In the early 1990’s, Teacha earned ‘Time Out’ magazines comparison with early Black Uruhu.
By voicing an A&O riddim and creating ‘David and Goliath’ (A&O- Everyday Life LP), together they established a UK Roots and Dub classic, and since recorded a series of other works and subsequent releases.
His many appearances and performances include The Heineken Festival, major universities across the UK, Glastonbury Festival, where he has also presented the Daddy Teacha Reggae Show for the official festival radio stations Radio Avalon and the later replacement station Worthy Fm for over 25 Glastonbury festivals.
