Earthkry - Dandy Shandy Tour
EarthKry’s journey began with a twist of fate, when keyboard player Phillip McFarlane, drummer Kieron Cunningham, bassist Kamardo Blake and vocalist/guitarist Aldayne Haughton came together to play a series of small gigs. Drawing inspiration from Bob Marley and The Wailers, The Beatles, John Holt, Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Black Uhuru and Steel Pulse, the group soon cemented a wholesome fusion of Roots Reggae, Souls and Rock genres for a fresh and universal sound. Much like the iconic reggae outfit The Wailers, the band chose its name to signify its mission to voice the grievances of the downtrodden through the vibrations of their legacy music. Since 2013 the band has spent much of their time creating music with other notable artists in recording sessions while further developing their signature sound. Through the guidance of veteran drummer/ lecturer Derrick Stewart, veteran trombonist Nambo Robinson, guitarist/former tutor Maurice Gordon and producers Stephen Stewart and Sam Clayton, the band has since released a successful debut EP Hard Road and an acclaimed, worldwide-charting debut album Survival and have toured extensively on some of the biggest international reggae stages.
