Biography

Someone forgot to tell The Harmonics that rocksteady music died in the 60’s. With a solid line-up of three-part vocal harmonies, smooth horn-driven melodies, and creatively-crafted rhythms, this five-piece is looking to start a rocksteady revolution.
It all started in the 90’s when Kurt (bass), Mike (drums), and Tom (vocals and tenor sax) got together to play original ska music. Eventually they became known as Green Island, dipping in to the musical pools of ska, reggae, rocksteady, and dub. Featured on a number of compilations and their full length release “Hit ‘em Soft and Slow” on Spit Shine Records, Green Island toured the country, sharing the stage with such talented acts as The Slackers, King Django, The Amazing Crowns, and The Toasters (to name a few).
After the departure of their lead singer, Green Island decided to combine their remaining talents, bringing Tim (vocals and guitar), Ben (vocals and trumpet), and Tom to the forefront to sing dense, flowing vocal harmonies. The end result— the champions of 60’s Jamaican music, The Harmonics. Their debut release, an 8-track EP named “You’re Wrong,” is currently available on Spit Shine Records, and material is currently being completed for a full-length sophomore effort.
One is hard-pressed to find in popular music today a band playing the kind of quality tunes that this band embraces, and perhaps the triumphant resurrection of rocksteady is not such a diffcult concept to realize with the arrival of Boston’s own, The Harmonics.
