Performing at Reggae on the River in 2010
|Birth name||Pablo Henry|
|Born||28 June 1948|
Moses got his start in music performing with informal school bands. He and Don Prendes formed a group and entered talent shows, performing under the name, "The Canaries". Moses released a number of records over several decades, but he is best known for his debut, 1975's Revolutionary Dream, produced by Geoffrey Chung, which included "I Man A Grasshopper", engineered at The Black Ark by Lee "Scratch" Perry. His 1980 follow up, A Song, was well received by his fans and music critics. Also well received was the single "Ready, Aim, Fire" off his 1983 album "In The Future".
Reviewing the 1978 I Love I Bring LP in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies (1981), Robert Christgau said "a lot of these charming, moralistic reggae ditties have the lyrical and melodic simplicity of Sunday School hymns—'Be Not a Dread' could almost be a roots 'Jesus Loves the Little Children.' And whoever devised the synthesizer riffs that set off Moses's spacey singsong deserves a gold star."
