About

The Belle Islanders started as a recording project involving 3 members of legendary Detroit reggae group Black Market and infamous Detroit vocalist Dave Edwards of The Look.

Inspired by a 1970’s reggae compilation “FEELIN’ HIGH”, Dave & producer/musician Bob Monteleone decided to lay down their own versions of some of their favorite songs from the obscure comp including “Feelin’ High”, “Country Living”, “Ah So” and “I Man Bitter”. In 2008 with former members of Detroit’s premier reggae band Black Market, Dave & Bob founded the reggae roots band The Belle Islanders.
