Dre Tosh, born Andre Jamil McIntosh is a Singer/Songwriter, carrying on the family flame as he is the son of Andrew Tosh, grand nephew of Bunny Wailer and the grandson of the late reggae legend Peter Tosh, one of the founders of reggae band ‘The Wailers’. Dre Tosh hails from Gregory Park, St. Catherine, Jamaica where he finds comfort as it’s where most of his family resides.

Dre Tosh was born with ‘Reggaemylitis’ running through his veins but started his musical journey in 2011, after some profound inspirational words from his Grandmother. He realized that he had a craft that, if nurtured, could be one that brings him eternal happiness. Music for Dre Tosh has always been for the development of himself and others. His father, Andrew Tosh, (son of Peter Tosh), has always been one to inadvertently encourage his music in a positive way.

Being an avid song writer, Dre Tosh started recording his songs in 2013. This was the year he thoroughly started searching for his own way of joining the world of Reggae Music. In 2016 Dre Tosh made an impressive appearance with his father, on the stage of Rebel Salute, showing the world that he was ready to pick up the Tosh legacy and move forward.

The Peter Tosh Museum, an institution that has been long in the making, had a benefit concert in his honour of his Grandfather. Dre had a mightyful & well received performance from the attendance there in honour of the late great Peter Tosh. Dre also had the opportunity to perform on stage alongside Warrior King, who called him up on stage during his performance at the All Spice food and Reggae Festival for Kingston Music Week 2016.

Tosh is currently working on his first single entitled ‘Coming in Hot’, (one of his Grandfather’s songs that he remixed) produced by Calibud music and rehearsing with his band, The Stepping Razor band. There is also a video in the pipeline for this new single.


COME Wednesday, a museum dedicated to the life and work of reggae great Peter Tosh opens at the Pulse Complex in Kingston.

The activities include a tribute concert and among the acts slated to perform is Tosh’s grandson, Dre Tosh.

The 22-year-old, who is the son of Tosh’s son Andrew, is raring to launch what he hopes will be a successful career; one that will live up to the legacy of his celebrated grandfather.

"From early the Jamaican public and family have never allowed me to forget, as they have always acknowledged that I was Peter Tosh’s grandson. Everywhere I go I am reminded of the rich legacy from which I have come, and this is something I am ready to live up to," he said.

Speaking with the Jamaica Observer from New York, Dre Tosh noted that he came into his own recently and embraced his musical heritage.

"Although I was hearing it, it was in 2011 that I really began to develop a passion for the music, and with my own enlightenment I started writing. I later met Tarrus Riley who reminded that we have a similar heritage...having reggae royalty and legacy in our lineage," Dre Tosh explained. "He encouraged me to stay grounded. Tarrus also said anything I needed he was willing to assist. I have come into a full understanding of the legacy, but at the same time I am here to tell the public that I am not Peter Tosh, but pledge to maintain the root and foundation while building on it in my own, youthful way."

Dre Tosh is preparing to drop his first single, a version of his grandfather’s militant Coming in Hot. Working with producer Calibud, he notes that his take hears his voice contributing the verse, while his grandfather’s vocals grace the chorus. He describes the song as "a rude boy, dancehall vibe with a deejay feel".

The release date for Coming in Hot is not finalised as a music video is also in the pipeline, which will also be used to introduce the artiste.

Dre Tosh is looking forward to performing at the tribute concert. He will be singing Tosh’s Mawga Dawg.

"It was chosen for me by my father. I really can’t name a favourite (Tosh song); all his songs are favourites, but if I have to choose it would be Apartheid, Feel No Way and Reggaemylitis."

Regarding the opening of the musem, Dre Tosh has two words.

"Long overdue."
