Ska Rebirth

Winston” Sparrow” Martin is currently the musical director at Alpha Boys school in Kingston, Jamaica.  He has recently embarked upon a journey to reunite Jamaica’s youth with the original sound of ska, and spread it once again to the world, hence the name ‘Ska Rebirth.’

Several members of ‘Ska Rebirth’ have been formally trained at the prestigious Alpha Boy’s school, and most play more than one instrument.  The core foundation of the group lies within nine key members,  Odane Stephens (Keyboards), Kemroy Bonfield (Sax), Rayon Thompson (Sax), Camal Bloomfield (Sax) Lance Smith (Trumpet), Kemar Miller (Trombone) Rohan Meredith (Bass), George Hewitt (Guitar) and Winston Martin (Drums). The group is presently in the studio working on tracks for their first album, to be released during the week of Jamaica’s Fiftieth anniversary of independence in August 2012. The Band will then take off on its first promotional tour of the UK, Europe, The USA and Canada in support of the Album.

I am ecstatic to be working with Ska Rebirth as a Producer and Engineer on this upcoming album and I’m also happy to announce that, tonight they will play at the Jamaica jazz festival! As a special treat, here are two exclusive singles, from the upcoming release, ‘fulljoy’ them!
