Biography

Guerrillafinga is a smokin’, reggae style music group hailing from the New York City area. The band consists of the smooth, irie vocal stylings of Tomas King, the jump-up, skankin’ grooves of Morten Ostensen on guitar, the rump shakin’ bass of Jake Nest, Peter Gaulin laying down the sweet sounds on saxophone and flute, and the rock-steady riddims of Joseph Pierson on drums.

Guerrillafinga has developed a solid fan base in the past 2 years, as their most recent website had over 100,000 total plays to date, including numerous #1 songs on the Roots/Reggae Top 40. Currently available from Guerrillafinga are the EP’s Puffdown and Kathmandu Sessions, containing such gems as “Tweeker”, “Blindman” and “Toughguy”. Soon to be available is their latest full length album Citizen's Arrest, which was recorded at Version City Studio, with legendary Producer King Django. Guerrillafinga has also gained national notoriety with their single "Kali Would", available on the Version City Sessions record, a compilation of great reggae acts from around the globe.
