Roy Ellis

Jamaican artist Roy Ellis, aka Mr. Symarip, sold over 7.000.000 copies of his classic Skinhead Moonsop album since 1969 on Trojan Records and is still kicking. 
In 1966 he was discovered by the “Godfather of Ska”, Laurel Aitken, who wrote 2 songs: ‘Jesse James Rides Again’ and ‘Because I Love You’, and produced a bunch of other hits for them.
The most successful Jamaican foundation artist alive, since he came back to the stages in 2006; he has released 6 albums in 3 different continents and played all around the world including Japan, Mexico, USA, Colombia, Argentina and of course all around Europe.
