PREMIERE: New Kingston “Come From Far”

New Kingston is a young trio of brothers—Tahir a.k.a. Slim on keyboards, Courtney on drums, and the eldest, Stephen a.k.a. Suki on guitar—who came of age surrounded by reggae music and have grown into America’s most dynamic reggae band. Their manager Courtney Panton (who also happens to be their father) is a highly respected producer and session musician whose Brooklyn-based studio has been ground zero for the creation of numerous reggae gems. After working with a wide range of stars, ranging from Collie Buddz to Shabba Ranks, New Kingston evolved into an act in their own right. Their fresh, eclectic take on roots rock reggae has won them a growing fanbase.

Today MASS APPEAL proudly premieres the title track from their fourth studio album, A Kingston Story: Come From Far, which is due for an August 25th release on Easy Star Records. “Come From Far” showcases the band’s live energy with soulful vocals that speak to the band’s path to this moment in their careers. “Everyone has a journey they are on or one that has ended,” says Stephen. “It all starts somewhere and we are no different. We have ‘come from far’ but ‘look how far we haffi go’.”
