Junior Toots gets spiritual
Junior Toots

Singer Junior Toots has always been hands on, as far as his career is concerned. He makes his directorial debut with the video for the song Physically Spiritually.

Shot on location in California (by Courtney Nevers), Junior Toots decided to translate the song’s lyrics onto film with the hope of getting the message heard by the masses.

“The inspiration for the song is from the struggles that I have faced in life and the struggles that we are all facing today. Working on the video, the vibes were great and we managed to capture the true essence of the song,” Junior Toots disclosed.

Produced by his cousin Aston Barrett Jr, Physically Spiritually was included on Junior Toots’ 2012 album Little Bit of Love.

“I’m just now doing the video and getting the promotional machinery in place by releasing a video because of the times that we are living in. It has inspired me to stay on the right path and I hope that it will do the same for everyone who hears the song or sees the video,” he added.

From an early age, Junior Toots began performing with his father, late legendary singer Toots Hibbert.

As he grew older, the roots-reggae singer learnt to develop his craft and decided that a career in music was what he craved, thanks to inspiration and encouragement from his dad.

“The best advice my father gave me is to always be professional in what you do,” said Junior Toots about his father, who died September 11, 2020.

Born Clayton Hibbert, Junior Toots is from St Mary. He now resides in California.

Among his better-known songs are Justice, and Puss and Dog Love the Herbs.
