House of Shem are on tour to promote there debut album "Keep Rising".

House of Shem’s strength is their phenomenal tightness and precision playing combined with the sweetness of their vocal harmonies.

Like other popular local groups Kora and Katchafire, this is no doubt down to genetics. It's most definitely a 'whanau thing' with Carl Perkins (Dad) steering the ship. He is joined in this band by two of his sons, Te Omeka and Isaiah who not only both provide vocals and keyboards, but also share the song-writing duties.

Backing this vital vocal trio is one of the most formidable rhythm sections in the South Pacific - Kaya Webster, who has been playing a solid 'one drop' since primary school days and Francis Harawira, a mean bassist who both hail from other well-known local reggae families.

To complete the band lineup are well respected and very talented musicians including Chris Neilson on Sax and Keyboards (Roger Fox big band, Ruia), Issac Aesili on trumpet (Opensouls) and Roy Venkataraman on Lead guitar who toured many years with Bob Marleys band "The Wailers".

Following on from their extensive exposure on over 30,000 Conscious Roots albums, where they were one of the standout acts on each release and playing in front of over 50,000 people this past summer at Raggamuffin, Waitangi Day, House of Shem are on tour to promote there debut album "Keep Rising".

Limited tickets available at Real Groovy and Beat Merchants, Auckland City and the venue.

With support from Helensville's own 'Roots West Reggae'.
