The Echoes of Kingston Tour has been gestating for many years. Originally a one day mini-festival held in Silverlake, CA it started at a 3 room venue called Zen Sushi. It was held for 2 years and featured some of the top young artists working in the Los Angeles, CA Ska and Reggae scene. The venue soon closed down and the festival went dormant. Looking around at the current state of the music, touring and general disinterest of the local market the time felt right to bring something back. There are a small yet growing and hard working collective of new young bands bubbling up again and wanting to foster that is number one of our list of things to do. So the Echoes of Kingston tour was born. Our hope and dream is to be able to build this first tour into a yearly event bringing you new and old sounds alike.
Persephone Laird AKA Queen P needs no introduction to most fans of Ska and Reggae from Los Angeles. Having begin with the masters of the sound Ocean 11 and never looking back Queen P personifies the likes of her musical godmothers including Marcia Griffiths and Phyllis Dillion. She will be singing hits from the Treasure Isle Song Book backed by The Delirians on select dates of the tour.
The Delirians are the newest young cubs to burst out of the East Los Angeles music scene. Raised on the toughest streets of Los Angeles the band have found protection in the form of music from JA to UK. They strive to thrive in a musical landscape forgotten by time. Ready to roar like lions these cats lay down the wicked sounds inspired by the likes of The Skatalites, The Hippy Boys and The Pioneers all rolled into one.
The Forthrights are a four-piece group from Brooklyn, NY. Featuring former members of The Pinstripes and The Fad, they take a fresh take on the sound of traditional Rocksteady and Ska. In a few short years they have solidified their place in the New York Reggae Scene and have collaborated with Vic Ruggerio (The Slackers), Chris Murray, Mr. T-Bone and King Django.
Maddie Ruthless is a 22 year old musician/DJ from New Orleans Louisiana making art that provides clear connections between New Orleans and Caribbean culture, specifically Jamaica. She will be performing her hitsound of tunes backed by The Forthrights on the tour.
