Friendlyness and the Human Rights started out in the fall of 2007, when veteran Toronto reggae heavyweight Chris Hatton aka Friendlyness (Big Sugar, Culture Shock, Raggadeath, Truth and Rights) joined forces with drummer Eric Woolston (Maylee Todd, Hooded Fang). The two shared a common goal to spread the messages of peace, love and human rights through high-quality contemporary reggae music, and it wasn’t hard to find like-minded artists from their network of highly-skilled performers to form the 8-piece outfit that’s been taking club and festival stages by storm in Toronto and across Canada ever since.
Over the past two years, Friendlyness and the Human Rights have been honoured to set the stage for some of the biggest names in reggae -- the late, great Gregory Isaacs, Beres Hammond, John Holt, The English Beat and Clive Chin. They’ve toured across the country and played major festivals such as the Calgary Reggae Festival, Toronto’s International Festival of Beer, Jambana and the Winnipeg Ska & Reggae Festival. Here at home they’ve played to packed houses at the Phoenix, The Great Hall, Opera House, Lula Lounge and the El Mocambo.
