HORSEMAN & THE UPPER CUT BAND
Horseman needs no introduction! His hard-hitting beats have backed the best Reggae artists in the business; Max Romeo, Little Roy and many more.
Famous for his precision timing and fearsome delivery he is just as comfortable on the mic as behind the kit. The Horse can be seen roaming across Europe appearing at clubs and festivals MCing with the Prince Fatty Soundsystem & Hollie Cook.
Following three decades of working with the creme de la creme of the reggae world, Winston Williams aka Horseman steps into the spotlight with the Mighty Upper cut Band.
As fearsome a drummer as he is an MC, Horseman has worked with musicians and producers Tippa Irie, Max Romeo, Gregory Isaacs, Sugar Minott, Jah Shaka, Mad Professor, Barrington Levy, Eeka Mouse and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with John Holt – to name but a few – most recently performing with Hollie Cook and Prince Fatty.
A big personality maybe, but there’s not an ego to match, Horseman’s ethos is one to spread love. “If my music brings joy into someone’s life then that’s my aim, its there to make people happy. I’m not in competition with anyone, music shouldn’t be competitive, I’m just me doing my thing”.
Horseman teams up with the Upper Cut Band who have toured with the likes of Solo Banton, Tippa Irie, Earl 16, Marga Dread, Sister Deadly Hunta, Danny Red, Afrikan Simba and are Festival favourites throughout Europe.
