Earthkry (Jamaica), Lion Heights
March 2 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am$7
Drawing inspiration from Bob Marley and The Wailers, The Beatles, John Holt, Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Black Uhuru and Steel Pulse, Earthkry has cemented a wholesome fusion of Roots Reggae, Souls and Rock genres for a fresh but universal sound.
Much like the iconic reggae outfit The Wailers, the band chose its name, EarthKry, to signify its mission to voice the grievances of the downtrodden through the vibrations of their music. Befittingly, their debut single “9 to 5” echoes the daily tribulations of the working class who are barely able to make ends meet from the menial wages they receive.
Lion Heights opens. After years of working as both live and session musicians for Chicago’s reggae elders, Lion Heights now resides in Austin and is young group with a new soul and old roots.
