Zion Train
Zion Train are Dub/Dance pioneers and have been undisputed leaders in the genre for more than 15 years. The band were purveyors of the finest Roots Reggae music throughout this period. They are one of the finest live dub acts in the world and promote the practice of dynamic onstage dub mixing which they perform alongside acoustic instruments and the best live vocalists. Zion Train have been one of the planet's most prolific groups with a mammoth recorded output and innumerable production credits, remixes and song writing collaborations. They released the world's first promotional dub music video for the 'Get Ready' single and along with their most extensive tour so far, taking in over 100 dates in 15 countries, 2007 saw the release of the band’s new album ‘Live as One’, their ninth. They have been recently awarded a coveted Jamaican Reggae Grammy for ‘Best Dub Album’.
