Brown has produced over 40 years of cultural, uplifting reggae music. He was born in Kingston Jamaica and began his career at the tender age of 12 years old, recording for producer Mr. Clement Coxsone Dodd, of Studio One. His first hit song “No Man is an Island” was recorded in the late 60’s. Later on he had hits like, “Revolution,” “Here I Come” and “Sitting and Watching.” Dennis also dabbed into films and was featured in Heartland Reggae. In 1983 he signed a major label deal in the United States with A&M Records and produced two albums for them.
Dennis started his recording label DEB Music to have more creative control as he felt the need to be more independent and aware of his business. In 1989 he team up with the “Cool Ruler” Mr. Gregory Isaacs with a worldwide hit “Big All Around.” He continued to records more hits and in 1998 he scored with “Cold Hearted Fool” and “Talking Revolution.”
