"Brick by brick we ah set it rocksteady, took some time for us to get ready…"
New music for a new world from New Kingston: the Jamerican band is just starting its international ascent, despite its solid US-fan-base and a decade-long existence. The founding bricks were laid by Jamaican bass-player Courtney Panton who moved to New York with his family in the early 80ies and, about 20 years ago, enthused his sons to pick up and learn one or two or three of the many instruments he had accumulated in his house. The result is a home-grown band of four: while Daddy Panton naturally provides the bass, his eldest son Courtney Junior rocks the drums, Stephen plays guitar and "baby" Tahir hits the keys.
