Bushman Sings the Bush Doctor; A Tribute to Peter Tosh is the latest album from Jamaican singer, Bushman. The album pays homage to the legendary Peter Tosh. Listeners are treated to classic hits like Equal Rights, Johnny B Goode and Walk and Don’t Look Back featuring Tarrus Riley.


The album debuted on the Sound Scan Reggae Billboard charts at #10 just 1 week after the January 25th release. Sound Scan tracks physical and digital music sales for the United States and Canada.  The album went straight to #7 on the South Florida Reggae Chart and is currently sitting firmly at #8 on the New York Reggae Charts. Igziabeher is one song that is getting heavy rotation on Sirius and XM satellite radio stations.

This great initial response is not surprising since the album is getting good reviews worldwide. The long awaited and much talked about album received many prestigious reviews, including a BBC news review from writer Angus Taylor who reported:  “A tribute that even the famously stringent Tosh could admire . . . of course, no one can quite capture the tension and defiant vitality of Tosh’s singing, yet Duncan’s sonorous voice is a very good fit.”

Burning Bushes Music teamed up with Penthouse Records to co-produce this magnificent 12 track album of classic hits, which is VP Records first release for 2011.  Three additional bonus tracks can be found digitally on iTunes.  Bushman says he wanted to do a tribute to Peter Tosh for a long time because: “Peter’s music is powerful and healing.  I listened to it while I was coming up and it influenced who I am as a person.  I hope for today’s youth to hear and learn from the messages in Peter’s music also.”


Bushman is in Jamaica now, getting ready to tour and promote the album in South America through February and March. Then he’ll be going to Europe for some of the festivals this summer. Upcoming tour dates for Bushman:

February 19 Carlos Paz in Cordoba, Argentina
February 20 Teatro del Viento in Neuquen, Argentina
February 22 Makena Club in Buenos Aries, Argentina
February 23 Barrace Freedom Bar in Fortaleza, Brazil

Bushman is pleased to celebrate the release of his album along with Jamaica’s Black History Month. A very important month to the artist who is committed to hosting his own Black History Month event called “Football ‘N’ Style” a fund raising effort for educational development in his birth place, St. Thomas Jamaica. No one could be happier than Bushman, to know his album, that represents a big part of Jamaica’s musical past is topping the charts in a month that is very significant to our cultural history. When asked how he felt about the album hitting during Black History Month, Bushman said: “We here in Jamaica need Equal Rights and Justice!” And he went on to say: “I don’t see color, I see people. I don’t see race, I see nations. We are all one people”
