Link&Chain release new EP "Fix The Roof"

Link&Chain release new EP "Fix The Roof"

The four exceptional musicians of the Jamaican reggae band Link&Chain have been working together for over thirty-five years. During that time, their musical success placed them alongside the All-Stars of Jamaican reggae groups and into magazines such as Rolling Stone, Beat and Pulse!. After an eighteen-year hiatus, Link&Chain has now reconnected to create six new sunny soundscapes on their latest EP entitled Fix the Roof.

Fix the Roof contains an array of catchy, hook-laden tracks that elicit messages of peace, love and hope. The six compositions display a theme of strength and unity, just as Link&Chain itself does within its members. “Tweetie,” “Mirror,” “Kasha,” and “O’Neil” are the nicknames used by this cohesive “band of brothers.” Each musician in the band brings their distinct influences into Fix the Roof.

The band is quick to point out, “As a group, we were influenced by all of the Wailers ... Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer, yet also bands like Steel Pulse and legends such as Jimmy Cliff, OM.” Fix the Roof displays a distinctively modern reggae sound yet has its roots firmly planted in Jamaican old-school style.

The band explains, “Our creative goal in this EP was to tap into our uniqueness, which I believe comes from all of us working together for over three decades.” Key tracks on Fix the Roof include the title track with its happy, upbeat blend of brass lines, and blues-based rhythm. “Long Road” displays the exquisite instrumentation and crafty lyrical skills of this foursome. "New Day Revisited" stands as a perfect example of Link&Chain’s ability to create soundscapes which wrap storylines behind funky backgrounds, percussion, and piano riffs.

Many other A-list musicians were behind the tracks on Fix the Roof; these include guitarist Ian “Beezy” Coleman (Ziggy Marley,) Dean Frazer (Sly and Robbie) on horns and engineer/producer Barry O’Hare. The three decades they’ve spent in the music industry has made Link&Chain greater and stronger than the sum of its parts. Within Fix the Roof, the messages of strength and unity are once again connecting Link&Chain to their listeners, even after all these years.
