The Tellways Detroit, Michigan

The Tellways mix their Motown Detroit roots with retro Caribbean sounds.

The result is unique; catchy harmonic vocals, vintage organ and pianos, heavy bass and drums, and jazzy melodic horn lines and solos.

It has elements of rocksteady, ska, reggae and soul mixed in their own way, and it will make you smile, dance, and sing along.
