With a history and foundation in the UK's 70's reggae music movement with his band Cygnus, signed to Greensleeves Records, backing John Holt, Errol Dunkley, supported Tappa Zukie, touring Europe and Scandinavia and appearing with The Cimarons and Jimmy Cliff; while in the late eighties and nineties the artist released a number of roots reggae tracks, the most popular of which 'Soldiers' is now a sought after collector's song, it is fair to say that this artist have earned his dues.

"This fine pedigree is certainly reflected in a track like 'Under Your Wings' from the new Watchman album, with its melancholy sentiment, insistent rhythm and excellent production. The album begins with 'Train to Zion', with its spiritual message and firm reggae beat. 'Murderers Gangsters and Thieves' updates the powerful message of 'Police and Thieves' from so many years ago. 'Love of the Most High' has a strong repetitive rhythm and melody, building to a powerful conclusion. The album closes with 'Where Will You Go From Here', posing questions for us all and including some fine contemporary guitar sounds. The album consists of twelve carefully-crafted and spiritually-inspired tracks that all lovers of reggae music should hear".  John Fenwick,

With the exception of the rock-influenced lead guitar on songs like "Futureless Children", "Under Your Wings" and "Where will you go from here?" played by Junior Etienne; the rap vocals on "Lift your hands up" by Odafe and co-written with Odafe, and the background vocals by Lateefah and Cola, the album was written, played, engineered and mastered by Lenny Deneb over a period of 3 years.

The Watchman album is without doubt political in nature, but it also displays the artist' love for humanity and echoes the current cry for justice.
