Steady was the first Easy Star release by Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, the boundary-pushing reggae band from Rochester, NY. The bulk of the songs were recorded in 2013 with Craig Welsch of 10 Ft. Ganja Plant co-producing. Two other tracks were recorded after those sessions and added to the sequence: the title track was co-produced by Danny Kalb (The Green, Ben Harper), while live show favorite “Mr. Cop” was recorded with Matt Saccuccimorano (John Brown’s Body). Steady debuted at #1 on the Billboard reggae chart.
