The Archives (John Shore)

The Archives

The Archives began when Thievery Corporation's Eric Hilton began to explore the roots of reggae music. He contacted keyboard ace Darryl Burke to bring in players that would bring a progressive vibe to the music. After a year of writing and recording, The Archives was formed. The band landed a two-year residency at Patty Boom Boom, where they honed their sound and built a loyal fan base. Their foundation is rooted in the rock steady and early dancehall reggae influences and includes arrangements that use funky instruments such as jazz flute and melodica.
