Cocoa Tea (born Calvin Scott) was one of the few early dancehall stars to carve out a consistent, productive career as the genre evolved over the years. His cool-toned, laid-back vocals were
perfect for sweet, smooth lovers rock, and gave him a distinct identity amid his more aggressive peers. Still, he was
also capable of toughening up his sound on his cultural protest material, which was often sharply perceptive. As a teenager he recorded his first song for producer Willie Francis. In the early 80′s he started recording for Junjo Lawes.
He entered a prolific period in his
career, recording superior albums for King Jammy, Gussie Clarke and Mr. Doo. Being a major star in the reggae business, Cocoa Tea’s team up with producer Phillip Fattis Burrell has produced a string of essential singles and successful albums.
