Often told his melodious voice reminds one of the great Dennis Brown, Honey Brandy, born George W. Swaby, hails from St. Catherine and seems to have been born with reggae in his blood. He has had a love for vocalism since the early days when he would tap the benches at school in Jamaica and 'bus a tune'. Since migrating to Connecticut, he has been doing what he loves, recording an album while performing with his band on stages in the New England area. His influences include Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles and Jimmy Cliff. His music is now an eclectic mix of conscious and danceable reggae, rock, jazz and blues. He embraces Rastafarianism as a positive feeling of 'one love' and can often be heard telling people of all races and creeds "Ras Tafari runs no wire fences, no boundaries. All are welcome to identify for themselves the true meaning of a positive mind and a divine spirit." A true humanitarian, he has donated to organizations such as Feed the Children and Breast Cancer Research at Saint Francis Hospital.
Honey Brandy is ready to take the world on his musical journey and sure hopes you join him!
