                                             SUGA ROY & THE FIREBALL CREW
                                      - an energetic force impacting the world

Suga Roy & Conrad Crystal started out as a duo and has been working together
for many years and now the duo has been changed from a duo to a group with
the new member Zareb. Conrad Crystal is still a part of the group SUGA ROY
AND THE FIREBALL CREW.
The energetic force of Suga Roy & Conrad Crystal have been powerfully
impacting the international reggae scene ever since they joined forces some
seven years ago.
Remaining consistent hit-makers, the duo has left an indelible mark and
are indeed two exceptional artistes who have decided to unify their voices in their
message-filled songs geared towards past, present and future generations…and
they have been able to successfully bridge the generation gap, as they embark
on their mission to spread reggae’s powerful message.
But how did fate bring the DJ and singer together? Simple. A love for each
other’s masterful work.
In 2002, Suga Roy, then a talented DJ and producer, was so impressed
with Conrad Crystal’s 1986 release, ‘True Love’, that he sought out the singer
and requested that both of them record a remake of the hit single. The remake
was a success and both found that they had a natural chemistry. More
combinations followed: a cover of the Pat Kelly original ‘Talk About Love’,
followed by a cover of Gregory Isaacs’ ‘Love Overdue’.
Their successful recordings continued, yielding the originals ‘Man Can’t
Walk In Peace’ on the Yellow Moon label, ‘Mek Dem A Gwaan Suh’ on Stone
Love’s Real Rock rhythm, ‘Tired A It’ and ‘Education Wise’.
All powerful, thought-provoking tracks that enjoyed success on the local
and international charts, as well as getting heavy rotation in the dancehalls and
on the airwaves.
‘Education Wise’, an anthem in schools, held the number one spot on the
Mega Jamz chart for three weeks, ‘Love Overdue’ peaked at number four on the
RJR chart and both tunes rode Richie B’s Hot Mix chart.
A double music video featuring ‘Man Can’t Walk In Peace’ and ‘Tired A It’
followed, along with the ‘Education Wise’ video that was a massive success.
Other singles from the duo were just as potent, including ‘Johnny Too
Bad’, ‘Piece Of The Action’, ‘Trace’, ‘Don’t Stop The Music’, ‘Righteous Train’,
‘Down In Jamaica’ and ‘So Many Persons’.
Suga Roy & Conrad Crystal are also Grammy nominated artist
on Sly & Robbie Grammy nominated Album The Riddim Doubles with the song Party Hot featuring Yellow Man in 2007.

In addition to constant studio work producing reggae classics, Suga
Roy & Conrad Crystal spent the better part of their career on tour,
especially the European circuit, giving sold-out performances in countries like
France, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and Spain, at places like Le Mans, Angers,
Alencon, Annecy, Bienne, La Clusaz, Rome, Bologna, Strasbourg, Passy, Mulhouse
and Girona, to mention a few.

The Newest release that is taking on the air waves worldwide is
entitled "Say A Prayer For Me". Stunning vocalizations from Suga Roy
& The Fire Ball Crew and Tarrus Riley. Produced by Leroy Moore, for Fire
Ball Records and GR876 Records of Jamaica, released 2019.
