Pinky Dread aka George A. Henry the son of "Jamaica's First Lady of Songs" Hortense Ellis (known for his work with Lee Scratch Perry, Bunny Lee plus Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare and the nephew of Alton Ellis, the "Godfather of Rocksteady".
Pinky started singing at the age of 6 years old. He was singing in his church and school choirs. At the age of 12 years old, he won a singing contest, the Jamaican Band Wagon. His win allowed him to take the stage with non-other than legendary Bob Marley with whom he shared vocals in five songs.
In 1975, Pinky started recording for the Twinkle Brothers Talent Agency. He did this by winning another competition for the Twinkle Brothers Talent Show. He was then flown to England where he recorded two songs "Children Cry" and "Street of Babylon". Just then, a series of setbacks, happened and for a while he stayed away from recording new music. In 1979, when he was 18 years old, he received a call from Newton Merit, Jimmy Cliff’s manager. He was asked to audition (at Cliff’s home) for a spot on the Jimmy Cliff Show.
Since then he has been recording and singing non-stop, touring Japan and Europe, but always coming back to his beloved Jamaica.
