Originally formed (in Brooklyn!) by the children of reggae legend Denroy Morgan, MORGAN HERITAGE “has inherited the legacy of his influential music.” (Billboard) The band has been going strong since coming together for its first performance at the 1994 Reggae Sunsplash, quickly being dubbed The Royal Family of Reggae and getting signed immediately to MCA. They released their debut, Miracles, that same year and sixteen records have followed, accompanied by a steadily growing reputation as one of the best live bands on the reggae circuit. 2015’s Strictly Roots, which featured Shaggy, J Boog, Chronixx, and members of SOJA, won them a long overdue Grammy for Best Reggae Album.

A trio from Anguilla with global ambitions, BRITISH DEPENDENCY’s “approachable blend of reggae, funk, and pop still has a little edge—much like their satirical moniker. For a three-piece group, they’ve got a big sound.” ( Their most recent record, Finding Wisdom, was recorded at Tuff Gong in Kingston; it earned them a spot touring with The Wailers last year.
