Soul, roots & reggae troubadours based in the Northern Rivers Bundjalung region of the Byron Bay hinterland.

Celebrating roots culture, Island vibrations & African-Caribbean rhythms.

A well oiled touring machine featuring the killer rhythm section of TK Dread (Fyah Walk, 420 Sound) on bass & Hugh Jones (Darky Roots, Fyah Walk) on drums. Showcasing the words and music of song-smith Jesse Morris. With dub reggae legend Marky Power (Dubshack, Rosie Misschief) on the live onstage dubs and samples. Accompanied by a selection of the finest local players on sax, clarinet, bone, trumpet & keys – with Elena Maricgot, Chelbell, Stuart Currie, Simon Kay & Stafford Smith as the usual ‘Shakedown’ suspects.

Jesse is the son of blues & roots legend ‘John Morris’ from Australian bands the Blues Preachers & the Narrow Necks.
