knox-3-Knox released Old Old Tree in 2010 with The Knox Brotherhood and his single Jah Love Jah Crucify in 2007 which had 100,000+ hits on YouTube and ran hot as #1 in the NZ reggae charts. Sa rui dede (one of his original Fijian songs) was also the No 1 hit on the Pacific Charts in 2010. Headlining many festivals, Knox has played alongside Kevin Borich, supported the late reggae legend Lucky Dube and Boney M in 2006, and played in his own renowned band in Fiji, The Knox Brotherhood. Knox now sets out on his new direction.

Knox now continues his journey with his upcoming Australian Blue Sky Tour, which hits The Byron Bay Brewery this Friday.
