Robert Bailey, aka Dillgin, was born and raised in Jamaica. Throughout the years, he has pursued his career as a singer, DJ, songwriter, and producer on his own label, Wall Streetz Records. As a producer, he produced many artists including Capelton "Never Get Down” and “Dutty Life", Beenie Man "Power and Shower", Sizzla "Buzz Rock Warrior", Anthony B. & The Mighty Diamonds "Pass The Kutchie”, and Luciano "Mystery Babylon", among many others. Dillgin's 2001 self-produced breakout single “Cuss Cuss”- featuring Mark Ice- was featured on VP Records Strictly The Best 27, and has taken him on tours throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Canada and across the USA.

Dillgin is the consummate performer and artiste. Dillgin’s music speaks to his goal of being an agent of change, using his music to spread a message of LOVE, TOLERANCE, PEACE, INSPIRATION and THE SUPPORT OF OTHERS. With a repertoire of original songs unparalleled only by few of the greats, he is also comfortable doing cover versions of songs that speak to him on a spiritual and emotional level adding his own unique flavor his experiences have wrought to whatever song he decides to draw from. Dillgin is constantly, tirelessly pushing himself to evolve as a person and as a musician. Dillgin can be found almost always in rehearsals or in the studio, when he isn’t off writing or performing.

Relocating to California in 2010, Dillgin started over with a renewed focus on his music. He has opened for and collaborated with California Rock band, Urban Classics; consulted and worked with renowned musician Derrick Barnett, from Sagittarius and Statement Band; He also recorded with guitarist Aurelien Metsch of Wadada Music; and Producer Prynze of Paran Sounds, to complete his new album, New Day, that showcases his musical and spiritual evolution, as he give a very personal and uplifting insight into his struggles, determination, redemption, and commitment to the Most High, his family, his music, and his fans.

Dillgin is poised to be a force to be reckoned with within the Reggae Music Industry. With a more mature, honed and sharpened sound, filled with emotion and notes from his life experiences, his authenticity and his unique ability to draw people in, to captivate audiences with his dynamism, emotion and talent, it is extremely hard to deny that Dillgin is about to take the world of Reggae Music by storm. Dillgin hopes his music will remove boundaries and build bridges regardless of race, color or religion, for people throughout the world delivering a message of LOVE and HOPE.
Jah Bless
