Roots from the Clay Singles
Based in Houston, Roots From The Clay is Texas’ fastest rising Roots Reggae band. Roots From The Clay was conceived in May 2017 by Jamaican duo: drummer, songwriter & producer Jermaine “Songo” Wilson and wife Dr. Aria A. Wilson. Jermaine is a graduate from Edna Manley College of Music in Jamaica. Jermaine spent years on world tours as the drummer for named Jamaican Reggae artists. Aria was previously a solo Reggae artist in Jamaica with a full-length album "Fulltime Love" to her credit. Jermaine and Aria formed the band and with the support of bassist “King David” Lee, keyboardist Robert Lauder and guitarist Rey Gonzalez, they perform together as Roots From The Clay (RFTC).
RTFC’s ambition is to encourage people through positive music. Their music confronts real-world issues: Racial equality, poverty, and relationships are honestly examined through a pulsing reggae beat. Roots From The Clay’s influences come from Jamaican Roots, Lovers Rock, Dub and Dancehall Reggae music from the ’70s through the 2000s. Their first album “No Struggle” was launched in November 2018 and is distributed by VPAL records. The album has seen airplay on radio stations in the U.S., Canada, Jamaica, and Africa.
RFTC completed their first tour in 2018. In 2019, they completed their Summer 2019 Tour which included supporting Earthkry across several US cities which included North Carolina, New York, Boston, and Texas. They have provided direct support for Freddie McGregor, Mr. Vegas, Warrior King, Admiral Tibet, Earthkry, The Wailers, Etana, and Cocoa Tea.
They have been experiencing steady growth and popularity on the local and national scene in the US performing to large audiences in their appearances at popular Festivals such as SXSW, Austin Reggae Fest, Dallas Reggae Fest, Houston Jerk Fest etc. With the positive vibes combined with quality music, Roots from the Clay will continue to grow making their impact in the world of roots reggae music.
