RUFF & TUMBLE
Vancouver based soulful reggae roots band is gearing up for a busy 2018. Led by singer/frontman Sugah Candiah, Bassist Paul Ryan, Drummer Tim Watson, Keyboardist/Vocalist Devon Martin and Guitarist/Vocalist Matt Doctor’s use of roots reggae foundations mixed with R&B Soul, Hip Hop and Gospel is the result of a lifetime of musical influences.
Development of their authentic sound began sometime in late spring 2017 when Sugah Candiah, and Devon aka Mr. Metro Martin started working on recordings in the studio for a later release date. Instant chemistry! Immediately they were productive and the music poured out naturally into the console as they continued to write and record exciting original music! Sugah, Paul Ryan and Matt Doctor have been performing and writing music since 2014 in a previous project so naturally they would become regulars around Devon’s studio (The Metrodome) laying down tracks. Everything came together in the fall of that year as fate would have it when top Drummer Tim Watson moved back to Vancouver after a two year stint in NY and TO as a pro session player. These are the musicians who came together to form the reggae band RUFF & TUMBLE! The lineup is quality driven and complete, the vibe is right, five piece reggae sound. Soulful Reggae!
