About 10 Foot Ganja Plant
10 Foot Ganja Plant
creatively employs a wide range of genres, but still sticks closely to the classic roots sound of 1970's Jamaica. Their loose
improvisations recall the deep, rich style of early reggae (the notorious Black Ark in particular) but also call forth a heavy,
reverberating atmosphere that is all their own. Despite their unlikely locale – upstate New York is not known for its
reggae culture – the band puts together some of the most hypnotizing, authentic-sounding jams in America today.
tied to the Ithaca, New York reggae outfit John Brown's Body, 10 Foot Ganja Plant has been performing since the early 2000s.
Little is known about this high-caliber collective, other than that JBB's engineer Craig Welsch was a driving force in its
foundation. Not all JBB members perform with 10 Foot Ganja Plant, and various guest musicians collaborate on the albums and
in performance. None of the musicians are ever credited on the collective's nine entrancing studio albums. It is rumored,
however, that Ras Jay Champany and ex-JBB member Kevin Kinsella have provided many of the haunting vocals over the years.
collective would make their big debut in 2000 with the release of their vocally minimal, instrumentally heavy Presents. With
less vocals and more dub influences, the album would be a significant and fascinating departure from John Brown's Body. The
ROIR label, attuned to new and established reggae talent, would then sign the collective. 10 Foot Ganja Plant has gone on
to produce eight more albums with ROIR, each as skillful as the last. From Hillstrip Landing, their first ROIR release, to
their latest musical trip Skycatcher in 2013, the ensemble consistently produces the finest reggae and roots tunes today.
Two factors central to 10 Foot Ganja Plant's appeal are their mysterious identity and surprise
performances. Their impromptu shows are never widely publicized or promoted much ahead of time, but 10 Foot Ganja Plant have
earned themselves a solid fan base in and around the northeastern United States' live music scene in the last decade. Their
hotly anticipated and difficult to find performances have dramatically increased the appeal of this already stellar collective.
Foot Ganja Plant's third studio album, 2003's Midnight Landing, is currently featured as a staff pick on Allmusic. Praised
for its preservation of traditional 1970s roots and reggae, Midnight Landing is a prime example of 10 Foot's exuberant re-purposing
of classic Jamaican sound. The ever-anonymous lineup features an unknown singer whose choice vocals are at once summery and
bittersweet, and the equally mysterious bassist delivers a righteous, soothing bottom line throughout the entire album.
10 Foot Ganja Plant has released the hardcore reggae fan's dream with their blog entitled "The Plant Speaks,"
a series of stories from some of most celebrated contributors to the collective. The stories are as poignant as they are few
in number (10 Foot would never give too much away). Luminaries on the series include Lee "Scratch" Perry, Yabby You, and Sylford
