Jahstix aka Rasta Rock, based out of NYC, is the embodiment of earth driving electrical charge, the amalgam of Roots Reggae, Roots Rock, Folk &The Blues. At once a laidback acoustic guitar rebel lover and at other times a charged Stratocaster wielding, swirling, dancing ,chanting Rasta. Jahstix performs both Solo as a self-contained Loop Monster and in a band capacity, when he’s playing with a merry band of world accomplished multi-platinum credited recorded band mates collectively known as “The Rising Sonz”. They bring the full energy from playing, writing ,recording and touring with such acts as Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Amy Winehouse, Burning Spear, Easy Star. All-stars, Araadhna, to name a few, into this unit to create a continuum on the Rasta Rock sound. Listen, Vibe. Enjoy and be carried away by the sounds of electric earth.
