The EarthKry 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. Their journey began with a
twist of fate which brought together keyboard player Phillip Mcfarlane ,
drummer Kieron Cunningham, bass guitarist Kamardo Blake and
vocalist/guitarist Aldayne Haughton, to play a series of small gigs.
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,
EarthKry, 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 and guitarist/former tutor
Maurice Gordon, the band works towards releasing their first E.P and then
debut album Hard Road in the near future.
