Alberta may be the last place you would go looking for reggae, but Tasman Jude is all about defying expectations.

According to Fritz Media: “The town of Grande Prairie, Alberta, may seem like the last place you’d find a killer reggae band but that’s exactly where Tasman Jude was formed. The band’s latest album ‘Green’ debuted at #1 on iTunes Reggae Charts upon it’s release in October 2014 and is the first in a series of 3 concept albums. The 2nd album ‘Gold’, due out this fall, will have a bit more of an island pop vibe (including new track ‘La Isla’) than the rootsy, earthy sounds of ‘Green’. The 3rd album ‘Red’ will take on the more ska/aggresive side of reggae music. These 3 combined albums will provide Tasman Jude’s full take on reggae – going back to roots of reggae music which teaches of God, peace, love, joy, truth, freedom, justice, unity and serenity.”
