Billed as the new generation of Jamaican roots, rock, reggae music, Raging Fyah has a new album and tour.
Raging Fyah, the five-piece outfit includes Kumar Bent on lead vocals, Courtland White on guitar, Anthony Watson on drums, Demar Gayle on keyboards, and Delroy “Pele” Hamilton on bass. On May 27th, Raging Fyah released their third studio album, Everlasting via VP Records and the label’s subsidiary, Dub Rockers.
Coming from the heart of Jamaican music, Raging Fyah recorded Everlasting at Tuff Gong Studios with producer Llamar “Riff Raff” Brown. The result was a 13-track album, which features guest collaborations with J Boog from Hawai’i, as well as Jesse Royal and Busy Signal from Jamaica.
Over the past year, Raging Fyah has reached new heights, including performing in the United States for the very first time, as the band supported California reggae-dub band, Stick Figure on its Set In Stone spring tour. Raging Fyah also performed at the 7th annual California Roots Music and Arts Festival on Sunday, May 29th, joining Damian “Jr Gong” and Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Barrington Levy, Tarrus Riley, Don Carlos, and Marlon Asher as the flag bearers from Jamaica.
During Raging Fyah’s set at the California Roots Festival in Monterey, J Boog was invited on stage to perform “Live Your Life”, from the recently released Everlasting album for fans in attendance.
Now, Raging Fyah will travel to Europe for a string of tour dates, including performances at Germany’s SummerJam Festival and Poland’s Reggaeland.
