Clive Bright aka “Tenor Saw” was born 06 Dec 1966 in Kingston, Jamaica. Seeking to make it as a recording artist, he approached several of Kingston’s producers. After being rejected by several others, George Phang gave the youngster a chance; His first single, “Roll Call” was recorded in 1984 for Phang’s Powerhouse label, on the “Queen Majesty” rhythm.
He moved on, with his friend Nitty Gritty, to work with Sugar Minott’s Youth Promotion sound system and Black Roots Records label, having hits in Jamaica with “Lots of Sign”, “Pumpkin Belly”, “Run Come Call Me”, and “Fever”. His most successful single, however, was “Ring the Alarm”, voiced over the “Stalag” riddim for Winston Riley’s Techniques label.
