NEREUS JOSEPH first emerged on the UK reggae scene in 1979 with the single "ROOTS & CULTURE," as lead singer with the COPTIC ROOTS BAND.

After a few years of touring with the band he signed to Clapham based label FASHION RECORDS. This liaison resulted with his first number one hit "SENSI CRISIS," quickly followed by "SPECIAL LADY " firmly establishing him on a sound footing.
His debut album "LOVES GOTTA TAKE IT'S TIME " included the "MOVE ON UP " single. He subsequently recorded two more albums for FASHION," YOURS TO KEEP " and "GUIDANCE," whose title track has become a classic U.K. eighties release.

In the latter part of the 80’s he toured extensively in Europe and the Caribbean and supported names such as Bunny Wailer, Dennis Brown and Chakademus & Pliers as well as headlining tours to Turkey and other places.

After taking some time out, the early 90’s saw Nereus recording with SAXON RECORDS who released three hit singles "SHOULDN’T TOUCH IT," "WONDERFUL FEELING " and "GIVING ALL MY TIME." Then came the collaboration with reggae super group ‘PASSION' in 1996 with the national chart hit "SHARE YOUR LOVE " on CHARM RECORDS
In March 1997, Nereus Joseph unleashed his highly acclaimed album "REJOICE " for CHARM, from which came the hit singles" "KEEP LOVING YOU ", "REJOICE " and "KEEP UP THE VIBES " both produced by RUFF CUTT.

Moving into the new millenium the collaboration with Ruff Cutt continued the result being his current album "HOPE FAITH & LOVE " featuring the singles "JAH NEVER FAIL " and "AFRICAN RESISTANCE ".
