Born in Tobago, and inspired by the thriving reggae and sound system scene he discovered in the UK as a teenager, Dandelion melds his roots to the modern sounds that inspire him, writing lyrics and singing for sound systems, producers, bands and labels - including Conscious Sounds, Hyperdub, The Drop and The Hempolics.

Based in London, Dandelion splits his time between The Drop - an explosive 8-piece that bounce between reggae, dub, roots and a rock steady sound that has been championed by David Rodigan and DJ Derek, and being a fully paid up member of The Hempolics.

Formed by uber-producer Grippa Laybourne, The Hempolics are a collective armed with fat radio-friendly hooks and a bumping sound system bass who are out to put the organic roots vibes back into music, they come with a sound all of their own and an eclectic debut album swelled by guest appearances from the likes of Paulo Nutini and Maxi Jazz  (Faithless), who described them as “…the best band in the UK - but nobody knows it yet…”
