Caribbean Artist Birthday

Marcia Griffiths

Marcia Llyneth Griffiths, November 23 1949, West KingstonJamaica,

Griffiths began her career in 1964 with Byron Lee and the Dragonaires in West Kingston, Jamaica. A member of The Blues Busters had heard her singing in her neighbourhood and recommended her. It was due to her performance that Clement Dodd and Ronnie Nasralla both offered her recording contracts. She recorded duets with Tony Gregory (“You’re Mine”), Bob Marley (“Oh My Darling”), Jeff Dixon (“Words”), and Bob Andy (“Always Together”) for Dodd’s Studio One label, with whom she would have a relationship lasting many years. As a solo artist, she had her first success with “Feel Like Jumping”, which like her other Studio One solo hits (including “Truly” and “Melody Life”) was written by Andy. etc
