2019 Tour comes to Catford
Born in 1972, Bitty’s earliest memories were punctuated by the music he would hear courtesy of his father’s sound system, where at the tender age of ten he started singing over Jamaican Dub and Instrumental riddims.
In 1992, McLean had not only co-produced but played and sang on UB40’s hugely successful album “Promises And Lies” selling in excess of 8 million copies.
Signed to Brilliant Records by 1993 Bitty’s own recordings including It Keeps Rainin’, Dedicated To The One I Love and Here I Stand notched up 3 UK top ten singles by 1994 selling over 1 million records.
The subsequent years saw Bitty accrue a fearsome catalogue of top 30 singles, as well as playing UK arena tours with UB40, Wet Wet Wet and Simply Red.
In 2004, he released the superb “On Bond Street”, in which Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle instrumentals played by the legendary Tommy McCook and The Supersonics formed the basis of the album. Bitty complemented these 35 year old tracks with such elegance it was hard to believe he was not there when the tracks were originally recorded.
2006 was the beginning of what is now a twelve year collaboration with the worlds greatest rhythm section, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.
The trio have recorded and toured extensively, and continue to build on a musical catalogue which includes critically acclaimed albums Movin On’, The Taxi Sessions, Heart Mind and Soul and the newly released Love Restart.
