There’s a new wrinkle in the Jah Roots “indefinite hiatus” saga, and it comes to us from Josh Nail, the group’s now-former percussionist. Nail tells us the other members of Jah Roots–percussionist Nail, bassist Steve Washburn, drummer Eric Groves, guitarist Mike Hulsey and rapper Aaron “I-Ron” Berger–are still doing music together separately from singer Josh Heinrichs. The group is reportedly putting new songs and sets together and hopes to debut them by late summer. No word yet on whether or not the band will retain the name Jah Roots in its new configuration, but it’s good news to hear that, one way or another, a band that’s brought so many good times to its audience is carrying on.
