Zion Train

Zion Train are Dub/Dance pioneers and Reggae Grammy award winners, and have been undisputed leaders in the genre for 3 decades. The live experience is legendary with audiences around the globe being whipped into a frenzy by pounding bass and heavy rhythms.

Celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2018, the band marked this with appearances at many festivals during the summer and touring across Europe in the Autumn and Winter.

Zion Train have been one of the planet’s most prolific groups, along with a mammoth recorded output and innumerable production credits, remixes and song writing collaborations they have produced magazines, CD-ROMs, Internet sites and built sound systems.

They released their last studio album ‘Land of the Blind’ in 2015 and a Remix album ‘Versions’ in 2016 with re-workings of classic Zion Train tracks.

Perch is now putting the finishing touches to the new Zion Train album which will be released in Spring 2020 and they will be joined by new vocalist Cara-Jane Murphy for live shows across the world.

For a short period only Neil is producing a collaborative project known as The ZT2020 Experience. This moulds the musical skills of Perch along with those of Bass player/producer Paolo Baldini and Alto saxophonist Gianni Denitto flavoured with the work of (VJ) Akasha to produce an uplifiting, visually accompanied Dub journey.

‘Live they are a Dub Sound System for the New Age. They play so loudly that the reggae pulse becomes internalised, the body’s surfaces reverberating like the cloth covering on the speaker cabinets… it’s a remarkably consoling experience’ Independent on Sunday

‘… a creative tour de force, showing that reggae these days is much more than similarly metallic dancehall rhythms, ripe for MCs to boast a-top’ ‘Live As One’ Review

‘…. something like good-old style, nicely flavoured with some new, wild and hot spices’ ‘Land Of The Blind’ review
