Delyno Brown (born August 5, 1981),[citation needed][1] better known as Pressure or Pressure Busspipe, is a reggae artist from Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.[2]

He gained his early experience working on the Star Lion sound system in the late 1990s.[3]

His debut album, The Pressure Is On, was produced by Dean Pond and released in 2005.[3][4] He had a hit in Jamaica in 2007 with a remixed version of "Love and Affection", a song originally recorded for Pond but updated by producer Don Corleon.[3] Corleon produced an album of the same name.[3]

His third album was called Coming Back For You, again produced by Pond and released in 2009.[3]

Pressure is known for his commitment to the Rastafari movement.[3][5]

His fourth album, Africa Redemption, was released in December 2012.[3] He worked on the album with producer Trevor "Baby G" James in Jamaica and Damian and Stephen Marley in Miami.[3]

After being a victim of gun crime and in response to the rise in violent crime in the islands, Pressure Busspipe organized a peace concert in St. Thomas in August 2013.[6]

Fifth album The Sound was released in 2014.[7]

His 2016 album Red Rose reached the top ten of the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart.[8]
