While the group works with many more Artists, the songs here featured demonstrate a cross section of the group's versatility, both in the studio, and live. Dub Station has been the glue, or a magnifying glass through which most of the artists featured have launched or intensified their careers (check the Info section on each tune for more song-specific background).
Constantly reinventing itself, the Dub Station is seeking further exposure for its existing roster and catalog, as well as new recording, touring, and Artist development opportunities.
In a sense, Dub Station is both long established (for over a decade) and up-and-coming (still broadening its global scope and exposure).
Having won various awards ("Outstanding Reggae Act," "Best Caribbean Band," etc.), performed.
Dub Station was founded by Kyle Russell, who first brought in keyboardist Rider McCoy (still working with the band regularly) and drummer Charlie Thorpe (plays with band occasionally). Currently, Glen Grant's doing most of the drumming (particularly on tour), and we've had various keyboardists come in, most recently Donny Jones (of Vibewise), Matt Odabashian, and Dia Fearon (founder of the Kaushon band, now living in Jamaica - who toured with Maxi, Sizzla, and others - and who co-produced the DS album "Forward Ever"). Ziggy White was the first steady guitarist with the group, then came Haitian GiGi and Sean Acker, who worked real steady with the crew from '04-'06 (and produced the studio tracks on the Tom O'Brien & Shaka Black collaborations with Dub Station). For the most recent tour, DS picked up Jus Goodie, a singer-songwriter in his own right, who niced up the dates with Abijah throughout.
