Wailing Souls

The Wailing Souls is a duo from Kingston Jamaica. Winston Matthews and Lloyd McDonald. In the late 1990s, even as the duo contributed to a revival of traditional roots reggae from the 1960s and 1970s, the pair survived a musical transition into the twenty-first century. Matthews, with a natural love of music and a knack for singing, received his nickname of Pipe from friends, because of his impressive voice, which many have compared to that of the late rastaman, Bob Marley. By the early 1980s, a violent subculture called dancehall dub permeated Kingston reggae and left peaceable musicians such as these in musical limbo. They have been complimented for their ability to record timely music with a sincere regard for roots reggae.
