General Roots was formed in 2008 by a small group of close friends who all had a passion for reggae music.
The band line up consists of six musicians. The Mckone brothers; James & Ben on drum & bass. Field Marshal Fred on lead vocals alongside the vibes controller, The Minister. On guitar is Joe Price and the keyboards, Sam Ross.
Without any managerial backing, GR have built up a strong and loyal fan base over the last four years, putting on trademark high energy live shows that have proved to get anyone and everyone up on their feet moving and grooving.
Following on from the successful start of things, GR worked alongside legendary UK reggae producer, composer & musician Dennis Bovell (Aswad/Hollie Cook/Joss Stone) to record two singles. Entrusting the help of producer Prince Fatty (Lily Allen/The Skints/A Tribe Called Quest) 'Sufferer' and 'Special' proved to be the best sounding material they had recorded yet, incorporating the vintage sound of analogue effects heard on so many classic Jamaican recordings of the past, whilst remaining original, fresh and catchy.
