Award-winning and Juno-nominated recording artists Andru Branch & Halfway Tree release their much-anticipated third dub album ‘Weather the Dub’ on Friday, January 20th.
‘Weather The Dub’ is an instrumental version of the band’s critically acclaimed 2021 studio album ‘Weather the Storm’. Executive produced by Guillaume Bougard at TABOU1, masterful sound engineer Dartanyan Winston trips out this collection of straight-up root’s reggae, brimming with lush horns and silky vocals. The East Magazine calls it “a real triumph in style and tradition.”
“The six-piece roots collective pack an authentic punch, an earthy sensibility, and an ear for hypnotic dub grooves. They show clear influence from the Wailers, Burning Spear and Lee “Scratch” Perry…Branch and crew nail the technical, spiritual and music elements of an instrumental sound that both entrances and inspires.” ~ Exclaim! Magazine
