THE WAILERS, together with Bob Marley, have sold in excess of 250 million albums worldwide. In England alone, they've notched up over twenty chart hits, including seven Top 10 entries. Outside of their groundbreaking work with Marley, the Wailers have also played or performed with international acts like Sting, the Fugees, Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, and Alpha Blondy, as well as reggae legends such as Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Burning Spear. As the greatest living exponents of Jamaica's reggae tradition, the Wailers have completed innumerable other tours, playing to an estimated 24 million people across the globe. Yet there's a great deal more to the Wailers than reliving the past. The band is still going strong today. JUNIOR TOOTS, son of Toots Hibbert of the Toots & the Maytals, is a uniquely talented recording artist and performer whose passion for reggae is evident in his moving live performances & recordings that inspire all.

With a mixture of Reggae, Roots, Ska, & Dancehall, Junior Toots reaches out to all supporters of conscious music with a message to unite & uplift. His new album, A Little Bit of Love is his finest work so far & is receiving lots of positive reviews.
