Rocksteady

Rocksteady
Recorded at legendary Harry J Studio in Kingston, this single takes us back to the golden era of Jamaican music. Featuring the original rocksteady drummer, Studio One pioneer, Soul Vendor Joe Isaacs, Rocksteady also features reggae Godfather Earl “Chinna” Smith on guitar. Soaring saxophones, bubbling keyboards and playful harmonies paint a fun-filled soundscape for Andru Branch’s loving testimonial, reminiscent of the days of doo-wop.
