•TROY ELLIS & His Hail Jamaican reggae band.
Troy is one of the sons of the legendary Alton Ellis OD.
He was born in Trench Town, Kingston, Jamaica. He used to perform on the streets from a young age when he realised what he wanted to achieve in life. He was inspired by his dad's music which has lead him to where he is now. Studio One, Treasure Isle, Coxsone & Channel One are all places his dad took him where he learn't to familarise himself with varies artists and many inspirational characters, such as Bob Marley.
Troy was inspired to form the band after the release of an album his dad made called Hail Jamaica which was a family vibes album containing songs from some of Troy's brothers, sisters and his aunty.
Broken 3 Ways, a 7-piece ska-punk outfit from the Wirral, UK are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry. It is no surprise that their energetic live performance has helped grow a loyal fan base throughout the Wirral and Liverpool music scene.
Their signature sound in captures the raw essence of Ska-Punk with hard hitting dual vocals, Skanking guitars and addictive brass that take their influence from bands such as Streetlight manifesto, Sublime, Rancid, Reel Big Fish and Capdown.
