Born in Jamaica, Hughie Izachaar came to England as a child. Raised by a strict family, after disobeying parental warnings not to attend sound systems he arrived home one evening to find his clothes on the doorstep and himself thrown out of home. Aged 17, he joined the British army as “the only alternative to being homeless on the streets,” & spent several years in Germany. Following the army, he began playing music, working with artists like Pablo Gad & Ras Imru. A guitarist foremost, but also skilled vocally & with other instruments, most notably the Bass, he soon picked up plenty of live & studio work, playing with Jah Shaka, Mad Professor, Dub Syndicate & many others. Much of his recent recorded work has been with King Original & Barry Issac's Reggae on Top label. An important musician to Conscious Sounds studio, he works closely with the Bush Chemists & Chazbo's Roots Temple label. He continues to tour live both in his own right and backing Jamaican artists on International tours. Currently playing bass with the reformed Dub Syndicate, legendary On-U Sound band.
