After their initial meeting in 2005, these talented musicians would find a common mission and goal. As a result of a unique collaboration, Judah Tribe was born. With members stemming from Cameron, Africa, Jamaica, France, Haiti and the USA, Judah Tribe has developed a truly international following.

With a style that is reminiscent of the golden age of reggae music, Judah Tribe has honed its unique blend of soul reggae. From the smooth love song Sometimes Love to the highly political Sleepwalker Judah Tribe has captured the imagination of its fans. Comparisons to legends such as Steel Pulse, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley are not uncommon. Their music has now been heard inside the walls of the United Nations as well as at many other prestigious venues including; the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Danny Simmon's Corridor Gallery and S.O.Bs in New York City.

Judah Tribe is led by accomplished singer/songwriter/guitarist Josh David whom has played bass guitar for many internationally renown artists. These include Stevie Wonder, Common, Q-Tip, Rene Neufville, Joy Denalane and a host of others. Together with music director & keyboardist Eric "The General" Toussaint, Josh David has crafted a unique sound that is stirring lots of conversation.

The full length debut album, New Day Dawnin, is due to be released in the Spring of 2009. Judah Tribe recently launched their new website http://www.JudahTribe.com which allows visitors to listen to new music, view tour schedules, and sign up for the band newsletter.
