LYNDON ‘ACE’ WEBB – Bass
Lyndon ‘ACE’ Webb-Bass guitarist: Born in Kingston, Jamaica, where rhythm pulsates and people gyrate to the sounds of Reggae music. At the early age of 8(eight), Ace developed an interest in the guitar, even going so far as attempting to make one from cardboard and some thread (of-course dat neva did work)…lol, and his love and interest in music just kept growing. Internship in the biz began in the early eighties, with that curiosity questioning the arrangements, and compositions heard daily from radio and television programming.
In the mid-eighties, ACE embarked on his journey, as a musician, placing no limits on creativity and blend while collaborating with a group of young enthusiastic friends working with little musical knowledge, and just having fun while creating something of a stir in the community. That experience of course, brought also a world of exposure and opened up a listenership to folk and other NATIVE music forms.
Migrating to London, and having completed a course in Audio Engineering, again there came the call to creative energies in the form of a London based group, that was not only a musical blend, but also a unit with various ethnic and social backgrounds, namely; a British Drummer, West African Guitarist, Swedish Saxophonist, and Nigerianvocalist, together brought a wide range of influences that spanned Reggae, Rock, Funk, African and R&B.
Fast forward to 1996 (Kingston, Jamaica), where ACE joined the Reggae/Rock group ‘GIBBY‘,. who gained critical acclaim on and off the Island, and was featured on the cover of ‘Billboard Magazine’ for their adaptation of crossover music. While continuously working in and out the studio, alongside some of Jamaica’s better known recording artists, performers and producers, ACE also played bass and or engineered for other local and internationally known artists, such as ‘LUCIANO‘, ‘SHAGGY’, ‘BENJY MYAZ‘, ‘BLACK UHURU‘, ‘FREDDIE McGREGOR‘, ‘JUDY MOWATT‘, ‘SEAN PAUL’, ‘DIANA KING’, ‘TOOTS & THE MAYTALS‘, ‘ANTHONY B’, ‘MAXI PRIEST’, ‘BIG MOUNTAIN‘, ‘LEON & THE PEOPLES’ and many more.
