Support: Dean Fraser & The Blak Soil Band
Tarrus Riley is one of the most promising of the second generation of Jamaica roots reggae singers. Like his father Jimmy Riley he has as a sweet, nuanced tenor vocal style, although his first connection with the Jamaican music scene was as a DJ in The Bronx, New York. Riley's songs retain ties to the Jamaican roots tradition while still managing to sound distinctly contemporary. In addition, his strong stage presence gives him crossover appeal and marks him as a coming force on the international reggae scene. Reggae's saxophone specialist Dean Fraser is coming along too.
