Roots of Creation

Roots of Creation create their sound from a plethora of styles. Starting with a strong base in reggae and roots- rock, they tastefully add elements of dub, electronica and dance to guitar-heavy progressions. Brett Wilson’s (Lead singer and guitarist) introspective and consciousness-laden lyrics round out Roots of Creations intoxicating, genre blending sound. The band is raising the bar at every show with the intent of delivering a true rock show cleverly disguised as a reggae dance throwdown. The band is comprised of original members Wilson, keyboard player Tal Pearson, and drummer Mike Chadinha and is currently touring with bassist, Brandon Downs, and second guitarist, Jay McGuinness. Formed in 2000 while attending Franklin Pierce College (New Hampshire, USA), they began touring heavily in 2004 and have continuously progressed. Their live albums attempt to capture what is so intoxicating and unique about a Roots of Creation performance. One writer from New Indie CDs wrote, “This band has perfected a Jam-Reggae sound…rhythmic jams dusted with an electronica avor and boosted by funk-rock riffs. When just four guys can go to this many funky and interesting places, you want to go with them. This is definitely a band to catch- as the title suggests- live.” Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
