Formed in 2006 in the basement of their Brooklyn home, brothers Tahir (keys), Courtney Jr. (drums) & Stephen (guitar) covered music by the likes of Bob Marley, Earth Wind & Fire, Dennis Brown, Michael Jackson, The Whispers and many more. The 3 brothers, under the watchful eye of their father and bassist, Courtney Panton Sr., called themselves, NEW KINGSTON. Together they incorporated R&B, Hip-Hop and Jazz with their heritage genre Reggae to form their infectious sound.
New Kingston started out by performing in other basements and small backyard parties around town, soon enough New Kingston began a heavy touring circuit supporting Reggae stars such as, Rebelution, The Green, SOJA, Matisyahu, Beres Hammond and Collie Buddz, while also securing spots on notable festivals such as, California Roots Festival, Reggae On The River, Summer Jam Germany, and Uppsala Reggae Festival to name a few.
To date New Kinston has released two full-length albums, In The Streets (2010) and Kingston University (2013) with a third studio project slated to release later this year.
