Inner Circle’s Ian Lewis on the course of reggae music

You might recognize reggae band Inner Circle from hits such as Bad Boys and Sweat  (A La La La La Long). Their catchy sing-a-long friendly pop influenced sound was met with great success in the early 90’s.

But the history of Inner Circle reaches further back than the 90’s. The band was formed in the early 70’s and with the late and great Jacob Miller onboard as lead vocalist they recorded deeply conscious tunes as well as disco-fused pop gems.

I got a chat with Ian Lewis – bassist and one of the group’s founding members – about reggae history, current dancehall and his view of Bob Marley. Check the full story over at United Reggae.
