Jimmy Cliff Background
Cliff was born and raised in the heart of reggae music – St. James, Jamaica. While in school, Cliff became infatuated
with reggae, and he soon took to performing wherever he could – local talent contests and in front of his family. When
he was just 14 years old, Cliff had his first taste of success with his single "Hurricane Hattie", which was produced by record
store owner Leslie Kong. After Kong became Cliff's manager, Cliff was on his way to major success, and he started churning
out hits like "Dearest Beverly", "Miss Jamaica", "King of Kings", and "Pride and Passion". In the late 1960s, Cliff's career
exploded, and he became an international reggae star, with fans in all four corners of the globe.
In 1970, Jimmy Cliff
wrote a song called "Vietnam", which Bob Dylan dubbed the best protest song he had ever heard. A couple of years later, Jimmy
Cliff took on a starring role in the film The Harder They Come, a film that documents the story of Ivanhoe "Ivan" Martin as
he attempts to succeed in the music industry, yet ultimately turns to a life of crime when his musical dreams fail. To this
day, The Harder They Come still remains one of the most important Jamaican films since the country's independence.
Cliff may be more recognized for his work as a stellar actor than for his music in the U.S., there's still no denying the
fact that Jimmy Cliff is one of the most significant reggae artists in the history of the genre. Cliff paved the way for countless
artists behind him, and today he remains an essential cultural icon for Jamaica – and now you have the incredible opportunity
