Passionate about music finding its audience  

There’s nothing worse than music lovers missing out on music they’d enjoy listening to, so here at Cruise International Records / Cruise Digital, we’re on a crusade to make sure older and newer top class music of various styles finds its audience.

Desmond Dekker

Desmond Adolphus Dacres was born on 16th July 1941 in Saint Andrew Parish, Greater Kingston, Jamaica.

As a youngster Desmond regularly attended his local church with his grandmother and aunt. Here would bring him his lifetime religious commitment and his enjoyment for singing.

Dekker moved to parish of St. Mary following his mother’s death as a result of illness. He later to moved to St. Thomas, where he took up an apprenticeship as a tailor, before he moved back to Kingston and landed himself a job as a welder. His co-workers encouraged him to pursue his singing career; he successfully auditioned for Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s record label and was awarded his first recording contract. As his career took off this was the time he decided to adopt the name Desmond Dekker instead of ‘Dacres’.
