Mikey Nanton

Mr Fingers as he is known in the industry, Mikey Nanton has performed with some of the greatest names in reggae history at some of the biggest venues in the world.

The classic style of reggae keyboard is a dying art in this day of technology and computer chips. But Mikey manages to keep the original vibe and feel of the music with his time honoured keyboard skills which compliments today’s sounds as opposed to feeling dated.

As the mainstay keyboard player with the Reggae Revolution, Mikey has worked on over seven albums including the legendary Alive and Kicking All Over The USA album and featured on over five top ten hits including Grooving, Baby Come Back (no.1 in 20 countries) and Bubblin Hot.

"Amongst the touring and the hits there were private jets...".

He has also worked on reggae legend Ijahman levi Live Over Europe album,and  actually started his music career with local talents BESHARA who had a top ten hit with Men Cry Too. His musical talent also crosses over to Dance, RnB and soul working with artists such as INNER CITY,who had a number one hit with Big Fun and Good Life.

Amongst the touring and the hits there were private jets with Sting for shows in Italy and Headlining shows with Ziggy Marley, Third World, The Wailers and Santana to name a few as well as playing with, Beres Hammond, Luciano and local Birmingham UB40 tribute band Red Red Wine,and Skibu.

The final comment must come from journalist at a recent reggae gig, If the sound is distinctive, the sound is uncompromising, and the sound is full and in your heart, the sound must have Mikey Nanton on keyboards.
