Chronicles Dub Trio
Respecting Reggae Roots
The Chronicles Dub Trio is an instrumental dubwise roots-rock reggae band that is based out of Toronto that truly believes in preserving the vintage-golden era of reggae; the 1970’s sound. That being said, the Chronicles specialize in the Rockers era. December 2016 saw the release of their debut album ‘Reflections’, showcasing their compositions and explorative improvisations within the realm of dub.
