On Tuesday, March 26th, Josh Heinrichs will be releasing his Rooftop Sessions EP. The EP includes 5 songs, but 1 song did not make the cut! We have that song for you this week with the track “Ganja Inna Missouri”. You can download it on the homepage & read up on the song & EP, HERE…
You can download Josh Heinrich’s “Ganja Inna Missouri” featuring SkillinJah on our home page under the MP3 Leak of the Week on the right hand column! This download will only be available until Saturday, March 23rd, 2013.
SkillinJah – Vocals
Josh Heinrichs – Vocals & Rhythm guitar
Lance Sitton – Lead Guitar
Mick Kline – Bass & Keyboards
Ian Foreman – Drums
Rooftop Session was recorded and produced in Branson, Missouri at Roller Pro Recording with producer, Greg Roller. With Josh Heinrichs on vocals and rhythm guitar, Lance Sittion on lead guitar, Mick Kline providing bass and keys, and Ian Foreman on the drums, Josh had the help of the regular Ganjah Records band to record.
When The Pier approached Josh about promoting his EP with an MP3 Leak of a song from the EP, he declined & rightly so with the EP only having 5 songs! But Josh fired back and said “I do have a bonus track from the EP that we did not keep if you wanna give that away? It’s a revamp of the ‘Taxi Riddim’ and our own little Missouri homage version of Josey Wales ‘It Haffi Bun’ & J Boog and Jah Maoli Rasta’s ‘Hawaiian Pakalolo’. As well as all the other herb fi bun tunes on this riddim, Mighty Diamonds etc..”
For the record, The Pier LOVES giving away bonus tracks, acoustic/dub/live remixes of songs or any new song as a treat to the fans & we find that ideal for our MP3 Leak of the Week. A lot of bands tend to have songs laying around, not being heard; Why not do Leak it as a FREE download for a week on The Pier?
“This was recorded as part of the upcoming “Rooftop Session” EP, but did not make the final cut and instead of not using it or releasing it, we decided to give it away free”
That about sums it up! Thanks Josh & fans, enjoy this song for FREE, this week only and on March 26th, pick up Josh Heinrichs new Rooftop Sessions EP.
