About Mykal Rose
Many avid fans of Black Uhuru consider their days with Mykal Rose at the helm as the band's best, and it's no wonder. His singing and writing on songs such as "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" and "Sinsemilla" are some of the best songs Black Uhuru ever produced. Leaving the band for rest and "farming," Rose has since returned with several solo outings featuring his classic waterhouse vocals, which is a wailing style of singing rife with conscious themes. Adding Hip-Hop and Dancehall influences to his Roots and Pop-Reggae hits has modernized his sound, but work with classic producers Sly & Robbie and Niney the Observer has kept his tracks rooted to tradition by recalling the classic singers of the late 1970's. A fiery live concert may be the best place to catch him bursting into a tenor moan with heaps of Jamaican Soul.
