It’s no secret that Pacific Reggae has made big strides on the world music stage in recent years and Dawn Raid Entertainment are pleased to announce the newest addition to the iconic local label, Wellington-based nine-piece band, BrownHill.
BrownHill is made up of nine Samoan friends all born & raised in Wellington, who individually harnessed their musical abilities through strict Church upbringings.
Independently releasing their own self-titled EP in 2011, the irresistible appeal of singles “First Love” featuring Reggae legend Fiji, and “My Girl” found an immediate audience with Reggae fans all over the world.
Lead singer Caesar Masoe’s deep and arresting vocals struck a cord with Dawn Raid founder Brotha D who recognized a classic Reggae sound, which mixed with talent and a stamp of creativity from the other eight members made an exciting proposition.
“I’ve been following Caesar for over seven years, from his time as a solo artist through to the growth and development of the BrownHill band,” says Brotha D. “BrownHill have a cool and crisp sound which I look forward to promoting to the world.”
Their debut album First Love was recorded over the course of 2011/2012 amongst touring duties supporting and backing international stars such as J-Boog, Fiji and SpawnBreezie. The album is set for release later in the year.
