Pluto Shervington, also known as Pluto (born Leighton Shervington, 13 August 1950, Kingston, Jamaica), is a reggae musician, vocalist, engineer and producer. His output is mostly representative of soca styled reggae, and over the years Shervington gained a reputation as a talented bass guitarist, as well as for his fine vocal interpretations. His output was briefly popular in the UK, despite the fact that his 'patois' was largely unintelligible to most of the British population. He is best known for his single "Dat" - about a Rastafarian with a secret liking for pork, contrary to his faith - which achieved considerable chart success internationally in 1976. He got into the Top Twenty in the UK Singles Chart again some six years later, with another best selling cut, entitled "Your Honour". This song dealt with a prisoner's courtroom pleas of innocence, in the face of insurmountable evidence to the contrary.

The song's somewhat racy nature, and comical styling is in the best traditions of calypso, and many elements of reggae. In 1974 Shervington engineered Little Roy's album, Tafari Earth Uprising. Pluto Shervington moved from his West Indian homeland in the 1980s, to Miami, Florida. Nevertheless he returns to his roots periodically to perform. He most recently appeared at the St. Kitts Music Festival on Friday 22 June 2007, sharing the bill with Steel Pulse and Sean Paul amongst others.
