Rusty Zinn

Even though he started his musical career firmly rooted in the blues, Long Beach Cali's Rusty Zinn has turned his eye to the world of reggae in recent, with fantastically beautiful results. Through his multi-genre work, Zinn has collaborated with a diverse array of artists including Larry Taylor of Canned Heat and Sly Dunbar of the legendary Jamaican riddim duo, Sly & Robbie. Zinn's songs like “Rise Up” and and “Only Thing That Matters” (the latter produced by Ska & Reggae Festival family Patrick Watson of Natural Flavas) capture the affable positivity of the finest reggae music.
