Alton Simpson

Alton Hugh Simpson, "Flabba" to his friends, was born in 1954 in Portland/Jamaica and spent the earlier years of his life in Jamaica.
At the age of seven he moved to Bristol/England and joined the rest of his family, who had left Jamaica six years earlier. In 1978 he decided to settle in Iserlohn/Germany. Here he formed the group "ADISA" in 1981 together with four other friends. "ADISA" gained a large and dedicated following in the German Reggae scene.
He was the bass player in the band and sang backing vocals.Years later the band was styled around the three singers, Flabba, "Cat" and "JP", and became known as "Three-Dimension". The album "Road-Block" in 1990 and the Italy-tour in 1991 were the highlights of the "Three- Dimension"-project.
Continually searching for new challenges, Flabba decided on a solo career alongside "Three-Dimension" and his album "Moving Forward" followed in 1993. "Moving Forward" became the source of motivation in his solo-career. He began working on new material, the result being the album "Zing!", which was released in 1996.
This album was co-produced by Spears and Tony Benjamin who added their wealth of experience and knowledge to the production. After producing the album "Zing!" he toured with his "Sunvibe Crew" and the "Riddim 1000 Band" from Jamaica, as well as supporting Everton Blender, Peter Hunningale, Ritchie Stephens and Junior Murvin in Amsterdam, Hannover, Dortmund und Mannheim. In 2001 Flabba started working on his third album "African Gold". It was completed in August 2002. At the same time the maxi-CD "Wanted Man" with "Telephone" (an album-track from "African Gold") was released too. During the work on his album Flabba made a few guest appearences with the band "New Culture" from Iserlohn/Germany and ended up staying in the band for a period of ca. two years. "New Culture" produced the live-CD "Strictly Live" (SUNCD 010) with him.
In 2005 Flabba was nominated for a Reggae Grammy (Category best singer) and played numerous gigs with the Natural Mystic band where he shares the lead singer role with Mr Irieman. Now in the present 2007 Flabba has completed his new Album "The Music in me" .
