Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frankie Paul (born Paul Blake, 1965, Jamaica [1]) is one of Jamaica's best-loved and popular dancehall reggae artists. Born almost blind, he has been dubbed by some 'The Jamaican Stevie Wonder'.

He has recorded for virtually every producer/studio in Jamaica at some time, and has been known to release several albums a year.

Do not confuse Paul "Frankie Paul" Blake with Paul Blake of The Bloodfire Posse, a band formed in 1983. Notable works of Frankie Paul include the popular "Sara" and "Worries in the Dance".

Citation

"Frankie Paul has a voice that improves with each release and, although initially compared with Dennis Brown, he has evolved a strange nasal, throaty style that makes him sound much older. It's the sheer exuberance of his best performances that give away his youthfulness, and his two London appearances have been joyous occasions." - NME (4 May 1985) [2]
