Outselling the funk reign of Earth, Wind and Fire in their home country of Canada, 70’s band Crack Of Dawn are a funk force to be reckoned with. Having released ‘Spotlight’ in 2017, an album recorded over several years that encapsulates all the smooth RnB and silky soul that the band are known best for, the band have unveiled masterful new mix of their album track ‘Ol’ Skool’.
A pioneering history that isn’t known by all, after being discovered by Otis Redding’s producer in the 70’s, the Canadian collective were the first black band to be signed by a major label (CBS) and were predicted big things by the likes of Billboard and more.
To accuse Crack of Dawn of being a collective of experienced musicians would be putting it lightly. With members such as guitarist and producer Carl Harvey who has been the lead-guitarist with Toots & the Maytals sharing in their Grammy win in 2004, Rupert Harvey founder of Canada’s most successful reggae band Messenjah and bassist Charles Sinclair who has played with Al Green, Crack of Dawn have no shortage of experience with music royalty.
Returning to already established fans from their 70’s reign, Crack Of Dawn have also opened a gateway for following of a new generation to discover the euphoric bliss that funk undeniably brings.
