Still working on that hot first release.



Phonosonics is BC’s fastest-emerging Roots Reggae and Rocksteady outfit. Hailing from the island city of Victoria, the project is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist/producer S. Cleave (formerly of Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra) and features some of the island's top reggae talent.

This powerhouse band has performed in Victoria across BC including an epic 2016 season including both Victoria Ska and Reggae fest and Rifflandia. It features soulful harmonies and electrifying danceability in a reverent update of this vintage style.

In the summer of 2016, Phonosonics released “Between Two Headphones/Dark-Haired Lady” a gritty-sweet, lo-fi twist on the classic Roots/Rocksteady sound. The single is available online and was pressed on limited-edition 7” vinyl available with select Canadian retailors and via mail-order. Set for an official local vinyl kick-off show in April 2017, and with a glowing reception in the Canadian Reggae radio scene, this rare slice of wax seems to be doing quite well.

Phonosonics continues to be one of the hungriest and most aggressive perpetrators of Roots Reggae and Rocksteady in BC. Look out for more in 2017 from this ambitious band!
