When it comes to reggae in Canada, few bands do it better than Toronto’s The Human Rights. Since forming in 2007 around one of the scene’s true lions, Friendlyness (formerly of Culture Shock, Truth and Rights, and Big Sugar), the group has a high-energy sound that blends roots-reggae with jazz, funk, and R&B influences, courtesy of a blazing three-piece horn section and the soulful vocals of Juno nominee, Tréson.
