Growing up with the foundation of reggae music, Andrew Tosh as a little toddler was absorbing the talent of his elders, father Peter Tosh, uncle Bunny Wailer and Bob Marley. Son of legendary Jamaican music icon Peter Tosh, Andrew Tosh has received his second Grammy nomination in the Best Reggae Album category for his new acoustic tribute album, LEGACY. Tosh was previously acknowledged by the Recording Academy for his album Make Place For The Youth (1989).
Released in September to critical acclaim, LEGACY actually featured on the homepage of digital music mega store ITunes for several weeks after its release. Co-produced with Handel Tucker and Dawn Simpson of Box 10 Ent Group Inc, LEGACY features ten of Andrew’s favourite songs from his father catalogue including ‘Creation’, ‘African’, ‘Pick Myself Up’, ‘I Am’ featuring Andrew’s uncle Bunny Wailer, of the original Wailers and the lead single from the album ‘Lessons in My Life’ which also features the talent of Kymani Marley. This was a significant track as it features for the very first time, the offspring of Peter Tosh and Bob Marley collaborating on a song together. News of the 2011 Grammy nomination put Andrew in a thankful mood. “It is an awesome feeling to be nominated within itself. I am not even focusing on winning (the Grammy) but to be nominated among the six makes me feel like a winner already.” Andrew explains. Andrew Tosh currently hard at work on his new album entitled I to I to be released in the first quarter of 2011.
It's good to talk.
