Newtown Rocksteady


About this artist...

Decade(s) active:

We say:

Hailing from Newtown in Wellington, New Zealand, Newtown Rocksteady bring you their unique take on Rocksteady Reggae.

Newtown Rocksteady may be a dance band but its all about the soul for the 12 strong group, aligning their collective musical powers to conquer hills and plunder valleys and almost always sweeping their audiences away with their sheer guile.

But for here and now Newtown Rocksteady, with a collection of $300 microphones, has nailed down, recorded and independently released a slice of their sound. Get it before your friends think its cool!

Track 1 & 3 written by Newtown Rocksteady, Tracks 2, 4 & 5 written by Andy Hoy & Newtown Rocksteady. Track 1 contains elements of ‘Ramble’ by Rico Rodriguez, Track 4 contains elements of ‘Climb Up on My Music’ by Sixto Rodriguez, Track 3 contains elements of ‘Earthquake’ by Jackie Mittoo.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Andy Hoy
