A singer who came to Bob Marley by way of the Clash and the Police, Bobby Kray was discovered in the Brixton, U.K., reggae record store Blackerdreads. It was there that Garfield Hackett and Nnamdi Ogugua, both from the Black Allianz label, came to see the store's famous "skinny white boy" who came down from Notting Hill's Landbroke Grove to entertain customers with his singing over reggae instrumentals and dubs. The label set the vocalist up with U.K. reggae legend Dennis Bovell to record a single, but the chemistry between the producer nicknamed "Blackbeard" and Kray soon meant the duo would be working on an album. The result, Tales from a White Skinny Boy, was released in 2007 by the V2 label with the Eek-A-Mouse collaboration "Main Man" as its first single. ~ David Jeffries
