Carl Dawkins born in, Jamaica,  Dawkins grew up in a musical environment, with his father playing drums in a big band orchestra that entertained tourists on the island’s north coast. The young singer spent his formative years in the company of Jamaica’s aspiring musicians. He practised harmonies with his colleagues and eventually secured an audition with J.J. Johnson with whom he recorded his successful debut, ‘Baby I Love You’. 1971, Dawkins, now known as Ras Carl Dawkins, began recording with Lee Perry alongside Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer.
