Everton Bonner, born 4 April 1963 in Rockhall Hills, Kingston in Jamaica is a Dancehall and reggae artist. His sweet voice was likened to American Artists like Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield. Pliers started recording professionally under the Black Scorpio label in 1987. His style was initially influenced by ’70s soul but also Jamaican artists like Pinchers (who inspired his performing name) as well as Shabba Ranks. Pliers worked closely with producers like King Jammy, Winston Riley, and Coxsone Dodd, just to mention a few where they recorded the albums Heartical Don Man and Sweet Sherene. He never achieved much success as a solo artist, in contrast to the immense success of his duo with Chaka Demus. Pliers’ voice blended well with Chaka Demus and they rose to stardom with their first major hit  “Murder She Wrote,” which was produced by Sly & Robbie, though Pliers had recorded it as a soloist before he had met up with Demus. “Tease Me” was their next single and it remained three months in the British Top Ten, reaching the number three slot. It sold more than 300,000 copies. The duo released their debut album in January 1994, Tease Me and their second album, “She Don’t Let Nobody” was released in 1995. At that time, it reached number four on the British album charts.
