This Wednesday, we have the rare opportunity to see Blue King Brown at The Royal here in Nelson BC. The band will be in town from Melbourne, Australia to support their latest album, Worldwize Part 1 North & South – an ambitious double LP release. The Nelson date comes in the middle of a comprehensive Canadian tour, including stops in Toronto, Montreal & Vancouver – but also smaller markets like Cumberland, Tofino, & Canmore..
If you’re unfamiliar with the group, check out two of the singles from their first full length album, Stand Up.
Their new album had them working in the studio alongside legends like Sly & Robbie, established reggae vocalists Jah Mason & Queen Ifrica, also working alongside renowned engineers Bonzai (having worked with Damian & Stephen Marley) & Katchafire‘s producer Chris Macro. Check the first single, “Never Fade Away,” below..

“Blue King Brown is my favorite band right now. They embody everything I love in music from Ozomatli, African bands, Tower of Power to Santana. They are the voice of the street and the band of the future!”
