We are very happy to welcome EarthKry
once more at Kaya!!!
The Earth Kry 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.
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, Earth Kry, 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, guitarist/former tutor Maurice Gordon and producers Stephen Stewart and Sam Clayton, the band has since released a successful debut EP «Hard Road», an acclaimed, worldwide top charting debut album «SURVIVAL» and have toured extensively on some of the biggest international stages.
