The new record was recorded, mixed, and co-produced by Errol Brown (Bob MarleyPeter ToshRebelution), and features collaborations with Stephen MarleyG. LoveMelvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), and more! (Download/Stream here).

Jon Phillips (Silverback Music, Controlled Substance Sound Labs) enthusiastically states, “Brett Wilson and his RoC band assembled a masterful cast in covering some of the ‘Gratest’ stories ever told. It’s good to see it receive this kind of recognition, and at least we’re enjoying the ride!!!”

Roots of Creation’s Brett Wilson adds, “Big up our team, the amazing special guests and all of the RoC family for taking us to the #1 spot by purchasing the record! Much respect to Jerry & the boys for the inspiration and to the dead community for embracing the album. Can’t wait to see your smiling faces on the road!”

The album continues to receive critical praise from the media including features in Billboard, Relix, and Jambase. Billboard.com gushed about the latest single “Fire on the Mountain” featuring Stephen Marley and Marlon Asher expressing, “Lead vocalist Brett Wilson’s soulful voice and guitar playing, combined with Marley’s cutting-edge vocals, make for a compelling rendition of the Dead classic.”
