Lovers Rock Music Description

A style of reggae music focused on romantic themes, both in sound and lyrical content, this was most prominent through the mid-1970s in the UK. The roots of this style are based in early 1970s reggae versions of popular love songs, performed by artists such as John Holt & Ken Boothe.

At a time when reggae was becoming more conscious with the lyrical focus being turned to Rastafarianism and politics, lovers rock was a counterpoint to this, being a continuation from the soul-influenced, love themed Rocksteady.
