Don Carlos (born Euvin Spencer) Legendary Reggae Artist – Born and raised in one of the most deprived regions of Western Kingston, Jamaica, in a district notoriously known as Waterhouse, which incidentally is also a musical spawning ground for many of Reggae’s greatest ever talents, such as King Tubby, original member of Black Uhuru, The Jays, Junior Reid and King Jammy to name but a few. Don Carlos started his singing career back in 1973, as one of the original members of the aforementioned roots vocal group Black Uhuru. Alongside other founding members, Garth Dennis who later went on to joining the Wailing Souls and Derrick Ducky Simpson Uhuru’s central figure, as part of the trio Don played a prominent role in the recordings of the highly acclaimed Love Crisis album, for producer Prince Jammy in 1977. The said album was later re-released and re-titled as Black Sounds of Freedom. A year after the trio’s ground breaking debut, Don Carlos decided to pursue his solo career.
During the eighties, Don was a popular artist in the Dance Hall scene with numerous top ten hits. In 1989, a request from Duckie for Don to continue his former role as lead vocalist in a rejuvenated Black Uhuru reunion resulted in a new Black Uhuru album – Now. After six years and four albums, singing lead for Black Uhuru in the studio, and on the road, Don again went back to his solo career. His album titles with Black Uhuru include Mystical Truths, Iron Storm and Strong. All of these albums are classics with Don up front on lead vocals. In addition, each of these four were nominated for Grammy Awards. After the Black Uhuru reunion, Don continued to show his inspiration through his albums Changes, Ease Up, Seven Days A Week, Groove With Me, and Live in San Francisco. Into the new millennium, Don joined forces with the California based Reggae Angels. He continues to tour the world successfully with his band, DUB VISION, among other projects.
