When it comes to reggae in Canada, nobody does it better—while remaining true to their founding principles—than Toronto’s The Human Rights. Since forming in 2007 around one of the Toronto scene’s true lions, Friendlyness (previously of Culture Shock, Truth And Rights and Big Sugar), The Human Rights have developed a distinctively modern, high energy sound that blends roots reggae with jazz, funk and R&B influences, courtesy of a blazing horn section and the soulful lead vocals of Juno award nominee Tréson. On their new album Reggae Strong, The Human Rights more than live up to its title following an extended break since releasing their 2016 self-titled album and the 2018 single “I Need You”. Recorded with producer and former band member Patric McGroarty, and mixed and mastered by renowned Canadian reggae artist Dubmatix, Reggae Strong finds The Human Rights coming as close as they have yet to achieving a truly Canadian reggae sound, with guest appearances by Toronto’s Ras Yunchie, Caddy Cad, I-Sax, and Carol Brown.


Poor Man’s High is a diverse ensemble that embodiess a retro 60s/70s feel and style, that modernizes that old coolness by layering on alternative rock and reggae flavours. They draw on a variety of influences from the funky, soulful stylings of Sly and the Family Stone and James Brown, to the early ska and roots reggae vibes of Toots and The Maytals and Bob Marley and the Wailers. They embrace the blues-rock grooves of Grand Funk Railroad and The Black Keys, and are deeply inspired by the rare grooves and intelligence of legends like Gil Scott-Heron and Nina Simone. In 2019, they released their 5-original song debut EP titled “That Perfect Day” and look forward to bringing fans a brand new full-length album in late 2023.
