Horace Hinds was born on 19 February 1951 in Kingston, Jamaica. Hinds recorded his first single titled “This Is a Black Man’s Country” in 1967 for producer Phil Pratt  and at this time, he was only 16. He unsuccessfully auditioned at Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One as a duo with Frank Melody and he decided to audition again days later and this time he went on a solo mission. Dodd decided Hinds should record as Horace Andy and the song he had usitioned with “Got To Be Sure” became his first release for Studio One. The following years saw the release of more singles including “Fever”, “Night Owl”, “Mr Bassie”, “See A Man’s Face” among others. The following years also saw Hinds releasing more and more reggae singles which included “Just Say Who”, “Love Of A Woman”, ”Every Tongue Shall Tell”, “Something On My Mind” as well as other singles for other producers such as “”Girl I Love You”, “Lonely Woman”, “Love You To Want Me” and “Delilah”. In 1973, Hinds released “Children Of Israel” which was a number one hit in Jamaica. Hinds and producer Bunny Lee’s association was successful as they together produced classics like the re-recorded “Skylarking”, “Just Say Who”, “You Are My Angel”, “Don’t Try To Use Me”, “I’ve Got To Get Away”. “Zion Gate” and a new version of “Something On My Mind”. In 1977, Hinds moved to Hartford, Connecticut and there he recorded for Everton DaSilva  including his “In The Light” album and its dub version.  Here he also recorded singles such as “Government Land” and “Do You Love My Music”. Hinds then set up his own ‘Rhythm Label’ and in 1978 he released the album “Pure Ranking” which was followed up by “Dance Hall Style” in 1982. In 1985, Hinds emigrated to London and here he recorded in the UK and also in Jamaica. In 1990, Hinds collaborated with Massive Attack and he contributed to all their 5 albums. He also worked with Mad Professor releasing the albums “Life Is For Living” and “Roots and Branches”.
