About Don Carlos:
Don Carlos started his singing career in 1965 in conjunction with other artists and quickly moved on to creating solo singles. In 1972, Don moved into a trio as one of the original contributors of Black Uhuru, alongside other founding members, Garth Dennis who later went on to joining the Wailing Souls, and Derrick Ducky Simpson. Two years after the trio's groundbreaking debut, the group split in different directions and Don continued to pursue a solo career.
Based out of the south bay of San Diego, neighboring the highest crossed border in the world, Stranger is turning heads through multicultural and musical diversity with a soulful blend of reggae roots, rock and jazz combined with conscious lyrics and unparalleled musicianship. The name says it all: Stranger does not fit into a mold. Even from the inception of the group, its diverse mixture of influences set the band apart from the other acts in the reggae genre and led to the band’s mysterious, yet creatively appropriate name.
