Earthkry
Earthkry
The EarthKry band was born and nurtured within the halls of the Edna Manley College of The Visual & Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica where four budding musicians hoped to hone their skills. Their journey began with a twist of fate which brought together keyboard player Phillip Mcfarlane , drummer Kieron Cunningham, bass guitarist Kamardo Blake and vocalist/guitarist Aldayne Haughton, 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 but universal sound.
Much like the iconic reggae outfit The Wailers, the band chose its name, EarthKry, to signify its mission to voice the grievances of the downtrodden through the vibrations of their music. Befittingly, their debut single “9 to 5” echoes the daily tribulations of the working class who are barely able to make ends meet from the menial wages they receive.

Since 2013 the band has spent much of their time creating music with other notable artistes in recording sessions while further developing their signature sound. Through the guidance of veteran drummer/ lecturer Derrick Stewart, veteran trumpeter Nambo Robinson and guitarist/former tutor Maurice Gordon, the band works towards releasing their first E.P and then debut album Hard Road in the near future.
A-Mac & The Height
A-Mac & The Height
A-Mac & The Height represents a unique musical experience of unity and adventurous fusion of genres. With hook-driven songwriting and a cohesive blend of reggae, hip-hop, funk and alternative rock, the group thrives on overcoming musical boundaries. Their immersive message and feel good energy has proven to bring together beautiful people from coast to coast.

The Denver, CO based band has a charismatic approach fueled by conscious thinking, with lyrics that are uplifting, relatable, and insightful. Bringing an energetic and moving live performance, A-Mac & The Height encourages their audience to partake in a genuine and united musical journey with them. Similarly, the group is known for creating intricate and extended musical passages through improvisation and faith in the unknown.

In addition to fearlessly touring the majority of the United States within their first year of forming, the band has also put out two full length albums. Young, bold and determined, the group is fascinated with pushing the envelope of artistic expression, paying homage to many of the greats including Sublime, Bob Marley, Dr. Dre and Grateful Dead.

After years of experiment and development, Alex Mackenzie-Low (a.k.a. A-Mac - Vocals & Guitar) has united his latest musical brotherhood, known as The Height. The band features six of Denver's premiere musicians including Matt McElwain (Drums), Stephen Eski Edwards (Bass), Karl Rivers (Keyboards), Joey Bean (Saxophone & Vocals), Ted Kleist (Guitar & Vocals), and Jake Heym (Percussion). A-Mac & The Height continues to break the mold and expand impact over a wide range of music lovers.
