New Roots of Creation album Livin Free out now ft Pato Banton, Ras MG of Sublime, & more!
Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam favorites like Gathering of The Vibes, Wakarusa and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold-out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offer up a high-energy, infectious experience.
Recognized as a Top 20 artist on the Relix/Jamband radio chart, a festival staple, and an internationally touring powerhouse, RoC have been awarded “Favorite Jam Band” by Cider Magazine and “Best Band In New Hampshire” by the New England Music Awards.
RoC mix their jam-reggae hybrid sound with homegrown roots, guitar-heavy rock, and lead singer/guitarist Brett Wilson’s introspective and conscious laden lyrics.
Their biggest project to date, Livin Free, is an 18-track studio LP, complemented by a 3-disc deluxe collection with both dub/remix and acoustic versions, plus limited edition double 12” vinyl.
Releasing April 22nd on RoC’s label, Bombshelter Records, with distribution by ILS/Caroline/Universal Music Group, Livin Free features Yeti Beats, Melvin Seals, Ras MG, Rubblebucket, Billy Kottage and more.
