About this album

Who are 10 Ft. Ganja Plant? A collective, a musical consortium, a group of childhood friends making conscious roots reggae music. 10 Ft. Ganja take chances, they experiment and most importantly they are lovers and practitioners of the 70’s Jamaican roots sound. Many of the members come from upstate NY where they have been deeply involved in Reggae music for years playing in bands such as Tribulation and most recently John Brown’s Body (Shanachie Records). John Brown’s Body tours constantly and most of their fans are familiar with 10 Ft. Ganja Plant.

10 Ft. Ganja Plant has independently released limited edition vinyl 45’s, and a classic CD on their own I-Town record label titled “10 Ft. Ganja Presents.” They are well known to those “in the know” and their consistent touring as JBB has already brought them an ever expanding buzz following. “Hillside Airstrip” is as captivating and soulful a reggae album as has come out in a long time. From passionate rootical vibes to heavy dub, this record will make believers out of their new and ever growing fan base. Seriously considered by their peer group as an emerging and significantly innovative band with a distinctive voice in the reggae community. To get that old school feel, all tracks have been recorded live and then voiced and taken from their original analog masters.

ROIR has a long tradition of releasing reggae & dub with over 20 years of working with both established acts and unknowns who have that unusual music quality that springboards them to wider recognition and steady sales.
