The constantly evolving Cornerstone Roots take time out from recording to road test new tunes before their upcoming third album release, "Future Is Now" in mid April of this year.

The band have been experimenting with new material and reworking some of the older classic Cornerstone songs to push forward and add an unprecedented level to the distinctive Aotearoa roots scene.

The original sounding roots band from Raglan, New Zealand with music that is message orientated, bass driven, soul induced. The quiet stalwarts of Kiwi reggae for the past nine years. They continue the path of many artists before touring the venue and festival circuit in between working on their craft.

Formed in 2001 after a session at the infamous local Raglan Musicians Club, the original three-piece outfit singer/songwriter/guitarist Brian and drummer Turongo Dixon (both Maori) and bassist Naomi Tuao (Samoan/Scottish) formed the rhythm section of Cornerstone Roots. The music at that time was raw and riddim focused with a mix of contemporary styled ska/roots/soul and reggae.

The band quickly developed a strong local following with many of the early shows being filmed and recorded by fans. This prompted the band to record their first EP 'One Fine Day' in 2001 where they set about touring provincial NZ where the cafes were crammed and live shows intense.

With Support from Dj's Paul Marston, Dbs and MC dreadeye.
