Half Pint's is small in stature but has a terrific voice and huge on-stage presence. Born Lindon Roberts, but affectionately called Half Pint, he is a product of the West Kingston enclave of Rose Lane, a community in adjacent proximity to Trenchtown which has produced the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Toots Hibbert and a host of other international Reggae superstars. He was nicknamed “Half Pint” by a Mr. Brown, who was the father of one of his mother’s friends in nearby Waterhouse.

Pint’s first single, “Sally,” was released in 1983 followed by “Winsome,” which went on to be covered by the Rolling Stones in 1987.
