    Bob Andy. Ever heard of him? I didn’t think so. How about Dennis Brown? Barrington Levy? Freddie McGregor? Gregory Isaacs? I-Roy? J.C. Lodge? Ken Boothe? Marcia Griffiths? Luciano? Maxi Priest? Mighty Diamonds? Sanchez? Sluggy Ranks? The Specials? Wayne Wonder? UB40? Now we’re talking, right? These are, without a doubt, the biggest names to ever emerge from the reggae music scene in Jamaica and the UK. What is the common thread among these gifted artists? They have all performed songs written by Bob Andy, a man who is called “the greatest living songwriter in Jamaican music” and “one of the best songwriters in the world.” As weighty as those descriptions are, they do not do Bob Andy’s talent the justice it deserves. I am talking about a man who has written, produced, arranged, and sung the most touching, the most ethereal, the most soul-soothing songs in music.
