Barbara Smith, better known as Lady Ann, began sneaking into local dancehall sessions circa 1975-1977, featuring sound systems like Black Harmony and Soulatonie. Lady Ann began her professional music career in 1978, recording her first songs, Plan Your Family (a combination with Ranking Toyan), as well as Shine Eye Boy, for Don Mais’ Roots Tradition Label. After that she worked with Alvin Ranglin, Blackbeard and Joe Gibbs.

Lady Ann’s latest outing, Bad Gyal Inna Dance, finds Lady Ann in a musical combination with trumpet player and producer djMush1 (aka Jeremy Mushlin), formerly of Epitaph/Hellcat recording act The Slackers. Bad Gyal Inna Dance is an album in the “roots” dancehall style, featuring a combination of both live and digital instruments performing roots reggae / rockers-style riddums. Collectors also refer to this style as rub-a-dub, as well as “vintage” dancehall.
