Grupo: Inner Circle

  • Inner Circle

    Realizan su primer álbum en 1974 bajo el sello Trojan Records. Luego, grabarían para Island Records Everything Is Great en 1979, llegando a estar dentro de las primeras 20 posiciones en el Reino Unido.

    El estilo de la banda fue decisivamente marcado por uno de sus miembros el vocalista Jacob Miller, quién murió en un accidente automovilístico el 23 de marzo de 1980. Para el final de los años 1970, Inner Circle con Jacob eran más populares en Jamaica que el mismísimo Bob Marley. En 1978 participan de la película de reggae considerada de culto Rockers.

    Después de la pérdida de Jacob Miller la banda se separa pero, en 1982 lanzan otro álbum titulado Something So Good. Finalmente, en 1986 los hermanos Lewis deciden restablecer el grupo y regresan con nuevo vocalista, Calton Coffie con quién lanzarían un nuevo disco llamado Black Roses.

    En 1987, realizan la canción "Bad Boys" y comienzan a autodenominarse "los chicos malos del reggae" (The Bad Boys of Reggae). Otro gran éxito llegaría en 1992 con la canción "Sweat (A La La La La Long)".

    Durante 1995, Calton Coffie sufre una enfermedad que lo deja inactivo por un largo período, después de su recuperación se desliga de Inner Circle y comienza su carrera como solista. Al poco tiempo, su lugar sería tomado por Kris Bentley.

    Para el 2012 se grabó un tema de Inner Circle con Don Omar, del género reggaeton, llamado "Fly Away" para el disco Caribbean Connection donde se juntan los exponentes del reggae jamaicano y el reggaetón.


    In English:
    When looking at Inner Circle and their 20 year plus history in the
    reggae field there is much more than what meets the eye. This
    Jamaican bred, Grammy award winning quintet, is one of the
    world's most respected reggae groups with a long string of
    successes stretching back to the mid-70's. Inner Circle blends a
    special style of pop-oriented Jamaican beats and energy that have
    made them the leading stars of their movement. Their spirit
    through the power of reggae within live performances has allowed
    the band to transcend the traditional reggae niche and create a
    widespread crossover appeal. Inner Circle plays at many of the
    world's largest music festivals, headlining alongside such towering
    pop and rock music icons as Elton John, Van Morrison, Jimmy Page,
    Robert Plant, Carlos Santana, and many others.

    In 1978, while playing for the One Love Reggae Peace Concert in
    Jamaica, the historic event in the film "Heartland Reggae," which
    featured Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, the band achieved a major
    breakthrough when Chris Blackwell signed the group to Island
    Records. That same year, they achieved substantial commercial
    success with the Island album "Everything Is Great," which became
    a Top 20 hit in the U.K and a Top 10 smash in France, and produced
    the popular singles "Mary, Mary" and "Music Machine."

    Tragically, just as the band was poised for a major international
    breakthrough, Jacob Miller, the lead vocalist was killed in a car
    accident on March 23, 1980. Devastated, the rest of the band broke
    up. Ian Lewis and Harvey moved to Miami and opened a recording
    studio named Circle House, while Roger Lewis joined them not too
    long after. Inner Circle became one of the first Jamaican groups
    to tour in the U.S.

    Circle House Studios remains one of the most prominent recording
    studios in Miami to date and was the home of the 2014 worldwide
    smash hit "Happy," by Pharell Williams.

    Inner Circle achieved new levels of international success in the
    1990s. The title track of the album "Bad Boys" became a #1 hit in
    almost every European territory, and sold approximately seven
    million copies worldwide. Meanwhile, the Fox television network
    chose "Bad Boys" as the theme song for its reality show Cops,
    premiering in March 1989. As the program turned into a hit, "Bad
    Boys" became a household pop-culture reference. Marking the 25-
    year anniversary that "Bad Boys" has been on Cops, it has been
    named the #1 most played ...
