With over a decade of hits in the South Pacific, legendary New Zealand reggae band, Katchafire, has released their greatest hits album, “Best So Far” (VP Records). The record features their most popular songs from the early 2000s to the present. Katchafire’s signature roots, culture and lover’s rock sound has influenced many of today’s popular Hawaiian and Californian reggae bands, including Common Kings, The Green and The Hot Rain Band.
Boston based singer/songwriter, Mighty Mystic, has become a leading trail blazer in the East Coast Reggae Movement. He and his live band combine elements of rock and hip-hop into their distinct “Hard Roots” style. His hits “Need Your Love”, “Lamb or Lion”, “Original Love” and most recently – “Concrete World” are all featured on the prestigious VP Records’ You Tube Channel. Additionally, Mighty has shared the stage with reggae heavy-hitters such as Damian Marley, Sean Paul, Shaggy and Beenie Man (just to name a few). We got a chance to sit down with Mighty to talk about music, life and reggae’s healing powers.
