Calvin George Scott was born on 3 September 1959 in Rocky Point, Clarendon Parish, Jamaica. He attended school at Savannah Primary School In Rocky Point and later Bustamante Junior Secondary School in Lionel Town, Clarendon. Scott gained exposure through singing on the school and church choirs. He recorded his first song “Searching In The Hill” in 1974 and for a while he was a jockey and a fisherman . Scott tested his skills by performing with the traveling sound systems that passed through local dancehalls. In 1983, Scott moved to Kingston and he met dancehall producer Henry Lawes and they recorded a series of hits together. These hits included “Rocking Dolly”, “I Lost My Sonia”, “Informer” and “Can’t Stop Cocoa Tea”. In 1985, Scott released his first album titled ” Weh Dem A Go Do… Can’t Stop Cocoa Tea”. Lawes then moved to New York and King Jammy took over as Scott’s producer. This resulted in 2 albums, “The Marshall” in 1986 and “Come Again” in 1987. Hits from the albums included “Tune In” and “Settle Down”. In 1989, Scott grouped with Shabba Ranks and Home T and under King Jammy and Cussie Clarke, they released the album “Holding On” which included singles like “Pirates Anthem” and “Who She Love”. In 1991, Scott released the hit “Riker’s Island” and he supported it with the album of the same name. Cutty Ranks replaced Shabba Ranks on another group album titled “Another One For The Road”. Scott’s next major solo hit was titled “Good Life” and it was produced by Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrel. In 1996, he released “Israel King” and the following year saw his cover of King Sporty’s “I’m Not A King”. That same year he collaborated with Cutty Ranks on the Bob Marley cover “Waiting In Vain”. In 1998, Scott released the album “One Way” and in 2001 he released “Feel The Power”.
