Clinton Fearon is a composer, writer, singer and player of instruments since his early teens and a professional since the age of 19. He was born in Jamaica and became the well- known bassist, vocalist and lyricist for The Gladiators as well as a house musician for Coxsonne Dodd’s Studio One and Lee “Scratch” Perry’s Black Ark Studio, two of the main producers of the island. He also composed some everlasting bass lines for well-known artists like Yabby You, Jimmy Riley, Max Romeo, Junior Byles and many others.

He founded Defenders with Jamaican musicians in the late 80’s and gave several shows in Seattle’s clubs with them. After the band split, Clinton Fearon formed the Boogie Brown Band with local musicians in 1993.
