About

Taking the vibe of Jamaica and blending it with the soul of Detroit, 1592 brings Rocksteady, a music genre that originated in Jamaica around 1966 to the masses. Their debut release The Rise of the Fallen took home the “Favorite Album of the Year at the 2007 Detroit Music Awards, their guitarist was awarded “Outstanding Reggae Guitarist of the year” for 2008, and other members have received two Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Reggae Group. Their blend of traditional music with newer technologies makes for an extremely groove oriented approach. 1592 is driven to impact the reggae world with their in depth look at the original music. Having played with groups such as The Skatalites, Toots and the Maytals, The English Beat and others of the original Jamaican sound, 1592 is determined to take a roots oriented approach to the music that they love.
