Little Stranger: A Fresh Wave in the Reggae Scene at Reggae Rise Up

 In the ever-evolving landscape of reggae music, a fresh and invigorating wave is making its mark. Little Stranger, an indie hip-hop duo with deep roots in the reggae genre, is rapidly becoming a staple in the Florida reggae scene. As Reggae Rise Up (RRU) approaches, this dynamic duo is set to bring their unique sound to the forefront, echoing through the heart of Florida's vibrant music community.

The Rise of Little Stranger: Born and raised in Philadelphia but now calling Charleston their home, Little Stranger comprises the talented John and Kevin Shields. Their music, a kaleidoscopic blend of indie, hip-hop, and reggae influences, is often compared to the likes of Gorillaz and Odelay-era Beck. Their journey fr om Philly to Charleston has been nothing short of a "musical odyssey," with each destination enriching their sound and style.
