Toots & the Maytals
Toots & the Maytals
Toots and the Maytals, originally called simply The Maytals, are considered legends of ska and reggae music. Their sound is a unique, original combination of gospel, ska, soul, reggae and rock. Frederick “Toots” Hibbert, the leader of the group, was born in May Pen in the Parish of Clarendon, Jamaica. He was the youngest of seven children. He grew up singing gospel music in a church choir, but moved to Kingston in 1961 at the tender age of sixteen.

The band won the 2005 Grammy award for best reggae album “True Love”, an album consisting of re-recorded versions of their classics alongside popular and legendary musicians such as Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, and Keith Richards, as well as popular artists today such as No Doubt, Ben Harper, The Roots, and Shaggy.

Toots and the Maytals remains a relevant influence on today’s global music scene with artists from Amy Winehouse to Sublime re-recording classic tracks. Toots received another Grammy nomination for his 2008 release “Light Your Light”. In recent years Toots has toured with The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow and Los Lonely Boys.

"Raging, expressive guitar and soulful singing...from scorched-earth rock to sweet, tender ballads." --Relix

Award-winning New Orleans guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Anders Osborne is currently celebrating the release of his new EP, Three Free Amigos. Three Free Amigos is a semi-acoustic collection of original songs cut in Anders' hometown of New Orleans in a relaxed, easygoing atmosphere, with friends joining him in various combinations, creating true musical magic. According to Osborne, the way this EP was recorded "is not what I usually do. I may never do it again. I wanted to keep it loose and give fans something different."

OffBeat magazine recently awarded Osborne with three 2012 Best Of The Beat Awards. He was named the Crescent City's Best Guitarist for the third year in a row, and also named him the Best Songwriter for the second straight year. In addition, he won Song Of The Year 2012 (for Louisiana Gold, from 2012's BLACK EYE GALAXY CD).
