General Roots are a six piece, high energy live reggae group hailing from North London. The band tastefully blend Roots, Dub & Lovers Rock to produce a unique combination of heavy bass lines, dynamic echo tracks & seductive vocals that show- case the originality of the group, whilst staying true to the raw sound and feel of vintage reggae of times gone by.
2013 saw the band independently release their debut EP ‘The First Attack’ which rapidly rose to No.2 in the UK iTunes Reggae Album Chart, just behind the best selling reggae album of all-time (Bob Marley & The Wailers ‘Legend’). This quickly cemented their place on an ever-expanding UK reggae circuit. Notorious for their live performances, the band earned themselves support slots and tours with established artists such as The Mighty Diamonds, Submotion Orchestra, Terry Hall (The Specials), Hollie Cook, Congo Natty & Channel One to name a few.
