Daddy Roots, who hails from the tiny and gorgeous island of Anguilla in the British West Indies. Having developed a first-rate reputation for his live performances, Daddy Roots has entertained audiences internationally—including appearances at the prestigious Chan Centre on the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Island Fest in Michigan, the Wild Hare in Illinois, the Belly Up and Malibu Inn in California as well as several tours of Africa, Asia and Europe. In celebration of his most recent CD, “Happiness (is in your heart)”, Daddy Roots is making a rare Southern California club appearance at Club Pitcher House, 409 N. Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach (310) 374-0001 on Saturday, March 29 at 9 pm. Since its release in 2007, “Happiness (is in your heart)” is spreading blessed love throughout the airwaves of North America and the Caribbean. In the Fall of 2007, the release was one of the most added CD to radio playlists nationwide according to CMJ’s New World Chart where “Happiness” remains a favorite among programmers. Over 60 stations are spinning Daddy Roots now—including non-commercial powerhouses such as WBAI in New York and KPFA in Berkeley where it received Top 10 status. Leading airplay tracks include the timely “Make Love Not War”, which peaked on Mediaguide’s top reggae songs, and the irresistible herbal anthem “Weedy Wop”. “Happiness (is in your heart)” showcases Daddy Roots’ creative depth and many styles which have already shown great promise of crossover potential. The video for “Forever Mine” has been added by MTV Tempo, and is currently in heavy rotation throughout the Caribbean. Promo Only, the nation’s largest provider of promotional content, selected “You’re So Beautiful” from the “Happiness” album for inclusion on their 2007 Caribbean Series CD. Focusing on the best new releases breaking nationally on radio, this monthly compilation is serviced to thousands of tastemakers at radio, retail, clubs and more. We look forward to many more success stories to come to Anguilla’s reggae ambassador Daddy Roots.
