The Brooklyners play an acoustic cocktail of roots Reggae

standards and original material, blending tastefully 3 part harmony,

powerful bass lines and a dreamy harp ...

For over four years, we have been playing NYC festivals (Atlantic Antics, BEAT

festival) playing some unique venues like The Brooklyn Museum or The

Brooklyn Conservatory of Music without forgetting our weekly residencies:

- Friday at Fada in Brooklyn Williamsburgh

- Saturday at AOC East in Manhattan 

David grew up surrounded by Jamaican music (Reggae, Rock Steady,

Ska, Nayabingi) and was influenced by Bob Marley, Toots and the

Maytals, Jacob Miller, Ethiopians, Gregory Isaac, etc...

He couldn't resist writing songs and learning different instruments

(drums, guitar, bass, keyboard) in order to record his own


In 1998-1999, David started a Reggae band called Roots Vibration

with the Jamaican singer/guitarist Farma Dread, whos also Ijahmans

guitarist. They performed in France and Switzerland.


In 2001, he completed a home made recording, playing all the

instruments and singing all the vocals. Since he felt the need to be

understood by as many people as possible, and this brought him to New York,

wanting to improve his English and to be closer to the Reggae scene.

A month after his  arrival in New York, David started recording at HC & F

Recording Studio, for engineer Philip Smart who worked with Shaggy,

Luciano, Shinehead and Buju Banton...
