Somewhere within the confines of Dunedin’s 660 Castle Street, five Otago University students began plotting in the summer of 2008. Marlon Gerbes, Matiu Walters, Eli Paewai, Chris Mac and Ji Fraser picked up instruments, turned on amps, closed the door to keep the noise in, and SIX60 came to life. In the six years since, the band traversed tens of thousands of miles throughout Australasia, Europe and The USA, and transcended the loftiest of expectations placed upon them by their most diehard fans. 
 
6 New Zealand Music Awards, quadruple platinum album sales for their self-titled debut SIX60, sold out nationwide tours, summer festival headline performances, collaborations with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra and feverish local and international popularity that few New Zealand bands could ever lay claim to. 
 
Careening between roots, soul, pop and dubstep; combining r & b with drum and bass; the band’s unorthodox marrying and mish-mashery between unlikely genres gained them favour throughout New Zealand in record time. Their popularity exploding from Dunedin outwards into the rest of the country, thanks to an enigmatic live show, infectious radio singles and a progressive onslaught of guerrilla promotion via social media. 

The single 'Special' arrives joyous and summery, landing gleefully in the sweet spot between pop, soul and R & B while channeling hints of Pharrell Williams-esque melodies and jinky guitar sound the band are known for.

ROOTS OF CREATION
"From addictive reggae pop songs to consciously charged roots rhythms and berzerk electronic improvisations, the grace and precision with which Roots of Creation execute their bass-heavy works is overwhelming. Their roots are tinged with rock, their rock brushed with electronica, and they’re as likely to dash off into a 10-minute guitar-led groove as they are to perform righteous vocal songs that resonate like the roots-rock classics of old.” — Homegrown Music Network

Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam favorites like Gathering of The Vibes, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, Fishbone, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offer up a high-energy, infectious experience. Recognized as a Top 20 artist on the Relix/Jamband radio chart, a festival staple, and an internationally touring powerhouse, RoC have been awarded “Favorite Jam Band” by Cider Magazine and “Best Band In New Hampshire” by the New England Music Awards. RoC mix their jam-reggae hybrid sound with homegrown roots, guitar-heavy rock, and lead singer/guitarist Brett Wilson’s introspective and conscious laden lyrics.
