About Frankie Paul
One of the greatest and most prolific Dancehall singers since the early 1980s, Paul has a rich, soulful voice like a honey-coated stick of butter. He releases more albums per year than many artists put out in a career, and somehow he manages to maintain an exceptional level of quality throughout. Born mostly blind, Paul has been called the "Jamaican Stevie Wonder," and he was encouraged by Wonder himself after singing with the Motown legend as a teen. In terms of his vocal style, Paul has a sweet sound similar to the great Dennis Brown with his vibrant wealth of enthusiastic energy. Part of his success stems from the excellent artists he works with -- from Sly and Robbie's Taxi label to albums with producers King Jammy, Bobby Digital and Winston Riley.
