NEW SONG BY REGGADDICTION

LISTEN ON SPOTIFY OR BANDCAMP

After the widely received 2020 single releases from the upcoming reggae tribute album to Neil Young entitled “Ganja Harvest”, the world’s pandemic was still in full steam with no end in sight. It was time for the Canadian-based Reggae collective, Reggaddiction band to remove the Covid blues, move with the changes and bring back more music. The band has been known for performing Canadian classics while featuring Canadian vocal artists in and out of the reggae scene. Reggaddiction not only pays tribute to Canadian legends but brings light to the current upcoming Canadian artists. That being said, with the encouragement from Oz, the bands’ drummer and producer, and suggestion from guitarist Jay Cleary, covering Jeff Healey bands’ Canadian iconic rock classic “Angel Eyes” was a well-made clear choice.
