Kiplin Simpson, 1976, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, West Indies. Simpson was influenced by the dancehall singers of the mid-80s and nurtured his vocal skills while in his teens. He embarked on his recording career when he met Anthony Red Rose in 1993. His singing style is similar to Garnett Silk, a fact acknowledged by his pseudonym: his colleagues decided that if he sounded like Silk then he should be known as Linen. By 1999, his career was firmly established when he recorded a version of Whitney Houston’s ‘My Love Is Your Love’, which re-united Linen with Red Rose who had set up the new Raggedy Joe fraternity. The hit was a dancehall smash and topped the reggae charts worldwide. Linen also had combination hits with Capleton and Anthony Malvo (‘Love Is Coming At You’) and with Silver Cat (‘Who A Di President’). In 2023 Terry Linen can be found performing festivals and touring internationally alongside the group Pure Roots from Santa Cruz, California.
