Ghetto Red Hot presents Israel Starr with Newtown Sound Live Band

Friday, 26 October 2012

Bodega, Ghuznee St

Israel Starr is able to rip up anything from hip-hop flows, sweet lovers rock, dancehall to smooth soul. 

Growing up in the Twelve Tribes gave him the opportunity to learn from some of the best reggae talents in New Zealand, including vocalist Che Fu, selector Oblex Brown, and his father, the legendary Mighty Asterix. Israel says, ‘music is in my blood and I can’t deny it’.

Israel Starr has stamped his mark on the reggae and dancehall scenes, joining forces up with Art Official (Newtown Sound), to form a killer deejay/MC team that is taking the country by storm. 

Alongside Newtown Sound he has released, To the Foundation, a tribute to the pioneers of the New Zealand reggae scene, and ‘Speak’, a call for people to wake up and stand up for what they believe in’. He is also making waves with his recent work with Iron Will. (more…)
