Founded in 2009, Faith Faward plays roots reggae. Fronted by singer-songwriter Lady Cellie, musicians from different backgrounds specialize in what the band describes as “the sound of a heavy drum and bass, mixed with the melodies of crucial keys and guitar riffs.”
Based in Clairemont, the band’s few cover tunes are by deceased artists such as Lacksley Castell, Hugh Mundell, and Bob Marley.
