Lite fakta om papa Dee:
Papa Dee is Swedens reggae pioneer, and has released albums for over twenty years. Right now he’s back in the spotlight with his new album “A Little Way Different”. The first single “Suzy Wong” is right now spinning on the Swedish radio.
In February and March 2008, Papa Dee could be seen on Swedish television every week. In his music documentary “Papa’s Kappsäck” he travels the world, does interviews and jamsessions with domestic artists and musicians. While recording the episode in Jamaica, he put together a band consisting of some of the legendary musicians that created the sound for artists like Bob Marley, Pete Tosh, Burning Spear and Black Uhuru. The creative and overall vibe was so good that they decided to record a whole album.
When back in Sweden Papa Dee joined forces with an old friend/producer Kent Gillström at Cosmos Records. In the end of 2007 they went back to Jamaica and recorded an album consisting of classics and some originals. To be in the legendary Anchor Studio with these musicians was a childhood dream come true for Papa Dee.
