Jones Town Kingston
Born and raised in Jones Town,
the mecca of dancehalls in Kingston Jamaica, Johnny is a part of the musical fraternity that established the foundation upon which reggae music exists today.
As a member of vocal group The Sensations, he cut some great sides for producer Winston ‘Techniques’ Riley in the late sixties and he continued to do
so as a soloist. After an extended stay
in Canada he returned to Jamaica
where he recorded some excellent singles and the highly appreciated album ‘Truths and rights’ for Studio One.
Gifted singer Johnny Osbourne would have probably achieved much greater recognition and appreciation had it not been for his prolonged periods away from Jamaica.
