Born Orville Richard Burrell and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Shaggy got his start as an MC in New York City's burgeoning dancehall scene soon after moving to Brooklyn in his teens. Not long after serving four years in the U.S. Marines (including two tours of duty in the Middle East as part of Operation Desert Storm), he inked his first record deal and quickly scored a global crossover smash with "Oh Carolina."
As the only diamond-selling dancehall artist in music history, Shaggy, managed by the Cherrytree Music Company, has sold more than 40 million album units to date, in addition to landing eight singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and seven albums on the Billboard 200 (including four in the top 40). He has received 2 Grammy Awards and is among the top 3 streamed reggae artists of all time on Spotify.
Not only a pioneering reggae/dancehall icon, multi-award-winning songwriter and hitmaker, Shaggy has long used his platform to strengthen his community and homeland. In 2009, he established the Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation and organized the first of many, Shaggy & Friends benefit concerts, which to date have raised millions for the Bustamante Children's Hospital (the Caribbean's only English-speaking children's hospital, located in Kingston).
"I always try to bring the fun when I'm performing, and keep everything very lighthearted and joyous," says Shaggy. "I think my purpose and my job is to bring joy to as many people as I can, and I want that to resonate within all of the music that I create."
See Shaggy as part of the Columbia Bank Concert Series at the Oregon State Fair on Tuesday, August 30!
