Anyone new to the works of Sgt Pepper, search him up on youtube, not only a great vocalist but a serious player of instruments also, many great releases on Jah Shaka label and Mad Professors Ariwa label. South London’s Sgt Peppr – aka Garnett Cross – grew up in a successful family of musicians and was playing professional keyboards at the age of nine. This talented singer and serious multi instrumentalist has recorded or performed with Mad Professor, Jah Shaka, Marko Perry, Horace Andy, the Ariwa Posse, The Twinkle Brothers and sister, Sandra Cross. Sgt Peppr is certainly one of the true talents’ who was ahead of time, and a contributor to UK Roots & Culture from a young age. Seen as a legend in some rites, he is humbled that many still consider his contribution to music so far as significant and still appreciated.
