"Entrances and inspires...nothing less than stunning."

~Exclaim! Magazine


"Branch's music is nothing like the new crossover/hip hop style of reggae. It sounds more like the Marley inspired tunes all the world has come to know and love."

~ The Sunday Herald


Kingston, Jamaica "Inspired by reggae pioneers such as Steel Pulse, Branch and his band deliver a timely message of love and unity."

~ Jamaica Star


"Positive and constructive, harmonic and infectious, it's the perfect soundtrack for these troubled times."
