Andru Branch & The Halfway Tree


Andru Branch's forthcoming new release "The Only Constant" is the much-anticipated follow up to his successful first album entitled " What If I Told You". The new album features drummer Squidly Cole and bass player Chris Meredith of Ziggy Marley's band, Seeco Patterson of the Wailers , as well as Tomaz "Moose" Jardim and Tyson Spinney, amongst others.

Recorded at Kingston Muzik Studio in Jamaica, "The Only Constant" is an illustrious collection of ten diverse and original works. The album is unmistakably roots reggae in its entirety, but infuses elements of many genres, including African hi-life and even country music. Poignant lyrics, powerful melodies, sensuous harmonies and dynamic horn lines combine with roots reggae rhythms to create a work of artful mastery.

Superheavy Reggae


Created in 2000, superheavyREGGAE was formed by Jeremiah, Friendlyness and I-sax with a mission to give the reggae massive the best in Modern Roots, Lovers Rock and Classic Dubs. Starting off with some scattered shows here and there throughout the city of Toronto, we originally settled in at 56 Kensington Ave in the heart of the famous Kensington Market, holding a regular session on the second Saturday of each month . Remember that venue with the huge aquariums and the days when we were allowed to smoke inside the club with no ventilation? "Mi seh.. is like I inhale a quarter poun' a i-shen.." After 56 closed down we made the move over to Thymeless, home of the First Trumpet sound system. Blessed for us, Thymeless is located at 355 College St, just around the corner from where 56 used to be, so the massive that we had started to build up didn't have to go to far to find us. Now, after about 3 years of holding it steady at Thymeless, we're going on stronger than ever. We're still holding the sessions there and they're still on the second Saturday of each month. Known as a blessed event, superheavyREGGAE draws the people because we play music FOR the people. Guests performing at superheavy have included Ini-man from Caveman sound, Demolition Man, Anthony Malvo, Chester Miller, Sassafrass, Treson and Humble. The superheavy family continues to grow and we say love to one and all!
