Born in May Pen, Clarendon, Jamaica is Glen Washington who started his singing career in 1973 and participated in the North Coast Hotel Circuit where he was a singer/drummer in quite a number of bands including Happiness Unlimited. Washington received his breakthrough with his album Brother to Brother which he did for legendary producer Clement “Coxson” Dodd in 1996. His career blasted off with Brother to Brother which was a big hit in that year where he recorded on classic Studio One Beats. Songs on the album include: Prisoner of Love and Love Knows No Shame. As a result of his magnificient talent, persons started comparing him to Reggae icon Beres Hammond.

It did not stop there, Washington continued by producing another album for Dodd, then with Lloyd Campbell. In 2018, he released another album entitled Time Of My Life, after which he decided to take time-off before doing any form of recordings. In 2019, he made a connection with Producer Willie Lindo of Heavy Beats Records in Fort Lauderdale for a series of sessions that helped him to produce his latest album I’m Living Well in June of that year. I’m Living Well consists  of  songs such as: Pressing On, a cover of Donny Hathaway’s You Were Meant For Me  and Play Mr Music Play on the revered Chiang Kai Shek beat. Washington believes that I’m Living Well is an excellent album and eventhough he’s being asked to do a duplicate of Brother to Brother, he has no interest in doing so.
