Born Clifton George Bailey III on April 13, 1967, in the rural parish of St. Mary, Capleton earned his future stage name from friends who were so impressed with his sharp reasoning skills they named him after the most famous lawyer in town. In Jamaica, he is one of the most popular artists on the island. Every August, Capleton hosts a festival called St. Mary Me Come From. When Capleton dropped the tune “Alms House” in 1992, he established himself as more than just an entertainer. He is a messenger and a guiding light of righteousness. Many of Capleton’s songs make mention of the blazing fire. Fire, Capleton explains, is a way of reminding one’s brother they are going astray.
