After a recent stint of shows in Hawaii, New Kingston heads to the mainland for a full-fledged U.S. tour in support of their recent 2-song release ‘Your Turn To Cry.’ On October 7th, the reggae trio and former Collie Buddz backing band will open for The Green at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl and continue to perform in major cities spanning the West and Midwest until the end of November.

Known for fusing their reggae sound with modern pop, jazz and R&B music, New Kingston is a young vocalist/instrumentalist group consisting of three brothers Tahir a.k.a. SLIM (keyboards/vocals), Courtney (drums/vocals) and Stephen a.k.a SUKI (guitar/vocals). They have worked with artists like Collie Buddz, Mr.Vegas, Morgan Heritage, Gyptian and Shabba Ranks and toured non-stop since the release of their second album ‘In The Streets.’It was just a few years ago back in 2010 that the RCS media team first met New Kingston on the red carpet at the IRAWMA awards in Queens, New York. They certainly have grown musically and creatively since that time and when we last caught up with them last month at the Atlanta Jerk Festival.
Their latest digital only selection ’Your Turn To Cry’ is available on VP Records and features the title track plus new single “Waiting On The World To Change.”
