Roots Of Creation – Grateful Dub
“The Reggae/Rock Dubtronica Hybrid.” This description, taken from the band’s Facebook page, perfectly describes the New Hampshire based Roots of Creation. Founded in 1999, this group of guys put a ton of time and energy into everything they do, and we are in the midst of a new project that is certain to live up to their standards. Grateful Dub is an album inspired by the music of the Grateful Dead. Roots of Creation has put their own spin on these tunes, and they are ready to release them to the world!
Here’s what the band has to say about the project:
Roots of Creation has always loved the Grateful Dead and been inspired by their music, and in January of 2017 they set out to capture the spirit of the Dead in a reggae dub style. The resulting effort is titled Grateful Dub and was recorded at the band’s hometown studio in Brookline, NH with the legendary 5 time Grammy winning producer/engineer Errol Brown (Bob Marley, Rebelution, Peter Tosh). Recorded over a period of ten sixteen hour days in the Dead of winter, the album translates some of the world’s and RoC’s own favorite Grateful Dead songs.
Brett Wilson, lead singer and guitarist for RoC, has been influenced by the Dead from the time he picked up a guitar, cutting his teeth and developing his jam band chops by playing over GD bootleg cassettes in the heyday of tape trading. This vibe has always resonated in RoC’s music, eventually leading up to a Halloween show of all Dead songs that sparked the idea for the album, Grateful Dub.
