Irie Idea
24 April 2014

Comin’ outta Portland by way of Philly, the duo of Curtis Irie and Morgan Smith, a/k/a Irie Idea, take a traditionalist view of blues, ska and rocksteady reggae and juice it with the energy of the punk rock on which they were weaned. Produced by Sammy Kay and Joseph Quinones at The Steady Rock Easy-Groove Factory in LA, “Good On Paper” is from the twosome’s new LP, Blues Like Sandpaper | Rocksteady Like Dirt, out May 13.
