Hailing from Brooklyn, New York via Kingston, Jamaica, 3 brothers led by their father Courtney Panton Sr, who also plays bass on stage with the group call themselves 'New Kingston'. Together they incorporate R&B, Hip-Hop and Jazz with their heritage genre Reggae to form their sound. They have released: two full-length albums, In The Streets (2010) featuring Collie Buddz, & Mr. Vegas and Kingston University (2012) featuring J. Boog
Formed in 2006 in the basement of their Brooklyn home before they took to the outside world, brothers Tahir (keys), Courtney Jr. (drums) & Stephen (guitar) jammed over and over to Bob Marley, Earth Wind & Fire, Dennis Brown, Michael Jackson, The Whispers and many more until it sounded right to Courtney Panton Sr. He wanted their vocabulary of music to be very eclectic before they hit a stage! "If you ask New Kingston if we still know all those songs, the answer is yes lol" says drummer Courtney Jr. "But they were all favorites that we loved and forever listened to"
New Kingston has toured throughout the United States incl. Hawaii, Canada, Europe & The Caribbean. They have shared the stage with artists such as Soja, Matisyahu, Steel Pulse, Dirty Heads, Pepper, Collie Buddz, Ky-Mani Marley, Rebelution, and many more.
New Kingston promotes through their music and their live show Family, Love and Harmony. "One Love" from NK
