Sweet & Irie is the creation of singer/ song writer Edward Ru (Lead Vocals) the vibrant front man that is leading a new wave of reggae music from the South Pacific.

Born in South Auckland and raised in Otara, before moving back to his home land of the Cook Islands as a teenager, the young musician was witness to a tough upbringing that in later years would be the inspiration that fuelled his authentic song writing abilities.

Although it appears that Sweet & Irie burst on the local music scene with the top 10 hit "Feels Like Magic" alongside Horsemen Family and their guest appearance on local favourite "Take It Out South" with Brotha D, the various members of the band have been refining their craft since late 2000 when Ed decided to pick up the Ukulele.

Ed was so inspired with the thought of putting a band together he enrolled in a tertiary course to learn the fundamentals of all instruments, bass & rhythm guitar, drums, keyboards and vocal training. After successfully completing the course he went on to do papers in contemporary music, graduating in 2005.
