Profile Information

Robert ‘Dubwise’ Browne is undoubtedly one of Jamaica’s most prolific guitarists, whose signature look coupled  with a musical style that fuses Jazz with Reggae and Rock has left lasting imprints in studios and on major stages  around the world. Influenced by Jimmy Hendrix, Lee Ritenour, and Joe Satriani. Dubz, as he is affectionately  known, has carefully mastered his craft over the past 18 years while working as a studio session musician,  Producer, and touring musician. 

A highly sought after axe man, Dubz has performed on every continent with an impressive listing of celebrated  artists such as the world famous Jazz pianist Monty Alexander, Damian Jnr Gong Marley and Julian Marley, the  sons of the late reggae icon, Bob Marley, Grammy winning artist Shaggy as well as multi platinum selling and  Billboard chart topping vocalist Diana King, as well as Joe, Heather Headley, Maxi Priest, Sly & Robbie, Michael  Bolton, the Crown Prince of Reggae - Dennis Brown, Burning Spear, as well as Tessanne Chin (season 5 winner of  NBC’s The Voice). 

According to Dubz, “working with artists like Shaggy, Diana King, & Jimmy Cliff gave me the opportunity to travel  the world, doing what I love and to experience different cultures, something most people only dream about.”  No stranger to the recording studio his guitar riffs are featured on Ziggy Marley and the Melody Maker’s album “Free  Like We Want 2 Be” (1995), multiple Grammy winner and platinum selling vocalist Lauryn Hill’s “Miseducation”  album (1998), a number of Shaggy albums including “Lucky Day (2002), Summer in Kingston ( 2011) and Out of  Many One Music (2013 ), Diana King’s AgirLnaMeKING album (2010), Joseph Hill (Culture), and Burning Spear. 

“After working with other artists for most of my career as a musician and experiencing all there is from this  perspective, I felt it was time to sing my own song - share what's inside me through my own music...” says Dubz.  2004 was the first step towards singing his own song when he released his debut solo album – ROBERT  DUBWISE: BIRTH on his Dubz House record label. The album featured famed saxophonist Dean Frasier and  veteran guitarist Ernest Ranglin. In 2010 he followed up with his sophomore album, ELECTRIFYING GROOVES  OF DiVERSION & his new release GROOVY LOVE THING. All albums are currently available on iTunes and all major online music platforms.   

Today, Dubz is off the tour bus and back in the studio ready to focus on pursuing his solo musical career.   In pursuit of his dream, Dubz has delivered awe-inspiring live performances at Jamaica Jazz & Blues, Reggae  Sunsplash, The Blue Note Jazz Club – Tokyo, Japan, and "Jammin In Jamaica" a smooth Jazz event held at the  Ritz Carlton Montego Bay.
