The Human Rights

Canada's Reggae Ambassadors

Since they came together in 2007 around one of the Toronto reggae scene’s true lions, Friendlyness (Big Sugar, Culture Shock, Truth And Rights), The Human Rights have become one of the most beloved and respected Canadian independent reggae bands. In 2014, their longtime bredren Tréson joined the band to give them a uniquely powerful two-man vocal front line that delivers incredibly potent modern roots reggae, soul, R&B and dancehall vibes – backed by the propulsive rhythm section of Tyler Wagler (bass) and Eric Woolston (drums), Canadian reggae legend Dave Jackson on keys, “The James Taylor Experience” on guitar and the Declaration of Human Rights horn section. By the end of this year, the band will have played over 200 club and festival shows across Canada including over 50 shows this year alone, and earlier this year they toured the United States for the first time to a stunning response. The Human Rights released three full-length albums, with a fourth on the way in late 2024.
