Shanty Short Info

Shanty are a seven piece party-reggae collective from northwest London; they describe their sound as ‘stomping bass, soulful hooks and party vibes’, with cross influences ranging from Soul, Electronic and Hip Hop embedded in the shanty sound.

Already championed by reggae don David Rodigan of BBC Radio 1 Xtra the eclectic outfit’s modern twist on classic roots reggae has seen them appear at prestigious UK music festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Secret Garden Party, Leopallooza & dozens more. They’ve shared the stage with genre-mates The Skints, Prince Fatty and Neville Staple of The Specials, who they kicked off their 2013 tour supporting.

After spending the past year touring club shows & summer festivals the band came out of the works with their debut EP titled ‘Leave Me Out’. The EP was recorded at the infamous Sawmills studio in Cornwall, known for hosting the likes of Oasis, The Verve, Supergrass and The Stone Roses.

Shanty are already treading in the footsteps of giants. This emerging band of reggae brothers look set to make a solid impact on the scene with this highly anticipated debut.
