Veteran singer Eric Bubbles, (formerly of The African Brothers, which included Tony Tuff and the late Sugar Minott) has worked his way onto the Foundation Radio Network Top 30 Music Chart. His latest single “Tears On My Pillow” has entered in the No.29 position.

Eric Bubbles aka Derrick Howard, is an extremely diverse artist, prolific songwriter and producer. He has made a highly significant impact on the development of Reggae music, when in 1969 he formed the roots vocal trio, The African Brothers with Minott and Tony Tuff Morris. They were widely regarded as one of the most innovative groups in Jamaica. Among their many hits; “Righteous Kingdom“Torturing” “Lead Us Father” “Mystery Of Nature” “Want Some Freedom” and “Party Nights”  

After the group went its way, Eric got involved in launching the careers of other notable artists like Barry Brown, Nitty Gritty, Danny English, Everton Blender, Errol Scorpion and Colorman. He has also wrote and produced songs for Gregory Issacs, Frankie Paul, Robert French, Derrick Lara, Johnny Osbourne, Anthony Johnson, Singing Melody, Rod Taylor, to name a few.

In recent years, Eric Bubbles has released several albums for the European market, where he maintains a very strong popularity. Albums include “Roots Of Black People” and “Come Over Now”. The single from “Come Over Now” –  his rendition of the Little Anthony & The Imperials classic – “Tears On My Pillow” is doing very well on various radio playlists on the continent, and generating much attention on New York radio, where it is getting lots of requests from tri-state listeners. According to the singer “it’s been a long time coming…New York is home and it is good to have a hit song at home…” Eric says he has many more hits in his catalog (over 300) which he has written and produced, songs that will make waves in Europe and the United States.

Keeping true to the roots of The African Brothers, he cites Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, and Jamaica’s National Heroes Paul Bogle and Sam Sharpe as major influences on his life’s work and music. Eric does it all and is deemed the true Renaissance Man!
