ISLAND HEAD

“It’s brilliant from the first note and the arrangement is delicious, love & respect!” Pat McKay, Program Director The Joint, SiriusXM radio (response to hearing “Blue Butterfly” for the first time)

The lyrics of “Blue Butterfly” draw inspiration from a true story of being visited by the spirit of a loved one who has passed away. In this case, multiple visits from a blue butterfly – “Dancing at my feet”. Read more about the story here: story

Island Head received critical acclaim for their debut album, Punky Reggae Party. The singles, “So Much Trouble in the World” and “Burnin’ and Lootin'” put the band on the map and were also featured on SiriusXM. The reggae world knows Island Head guitarists Mikey ‘Mao’ Chung and Andy Bassford. Between the two of them they have recorded and/or performed with almost everybody in the reggae world from Bob Marley and Peter Tosh to Rihanna and Sting. They keep it real! The rest of the band brings versatile, deep industry resumes, as well.

“Blue Butterfly” was written and produced by Island Head’s drummer and singer, Billy Messinetti and was mixed and mastered by E.N Young as his studio, Imperial Sound Recording Studio in Imperial Beach, CA.

The band combines the essence of their collective musical lifetime experiences.  “We take the listener on a musical journey to a fun place where there is jamming, dancing, laughing, partying and all the things that everyone loves about music.  We wanted to make a recording that would remind us why we are musicians.

The debut album, “Punky Reggae Party” has mostly compositions by Bob Marley with unique grooves and arrangements. Their live shows include some classic American vocal tunes done reggae style and some classic Jamaican reggae.  Island Head is for people who love reggae music, jambands, and appreciate live interaction of musicians creating spontaneous music.

NOTE: This band is sometimes referred to as Island Head Musicians, Island Head Band or Islandhead.
