“Tremendous local artist...” - Chris Taylor, the Chaser
“One of the highlights of Australian Music Week” - the AU Review
“...a fine artist” - Adam Spencer, Mathematician (so must be right)
A blend of roots reggae and dub, wound together with captivating hooks, solid grooves and striking harmonies, resulting the type of big‐band reggae that throws everything at you from horns to percussion to tripped‐out synths and delay‐drenched keys.
As well as supporting Arrested Development (USA) the band have shared the stage with the likes of The Original Wailers (JAM), J Boog (US), Third World (JAM), Black Slate (UK), Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Collie Buddz (BER), Kingfisha, Six60 (NZ), King Tide, The Strides, and Bobby Alu. Combined with a run of festival performances that includes a 2019 spot on the prestigious Goa Sunsplash in India, as well as Caloundra Music Festival, Nimbin Mardi Grass and Nimbin Roots Festivals, back‐to‐back Peats Ridge Festivals, and FBi Radio's Reggae Carnival, their reputation for an impressive live show continues to grow.
Accolades include being hailed as “one of the highlights” of the inaugural Australian Music Week (AU Review), finalist nomination at the MusicOz Awards (blues & roots and acoustic singer/songwriter), winning the Australian Hard Rock Café Mash-Up comp, and also nabbing a gong at the Australian Independent Music Video Awards (Innovation).
