Quiet Place by STR8WYZ is a cover version of a song of the same name by John Holt & The Paragons originally recorded and released in 1968. It is a version in the truest sense with added original lyrics and melody by Wiser Dhon, so it’s part original, part cover.

Based in Kingston, Jamaica, STR8WYZ is a Reggae group which in two years of its existence already managed to build considerable pedigree, landing collaborations with numerous Reggae legends. They formed in early 2018, when British singer-songwriter Str8 Up linked up with Jamaican DJ Wiser Dhon. They released numerous singles, building up their pedigree alongside rare collabs, while working on their debut album set to release this year.

They are Reggae in heart and soul, and praises of Jah echo through their airy compositions and peace-laden vocals. They represent the music that is to keep a heart at ease and celebrate life. With such vibes, they got the opportunity to further enhance their craft and learn from the best – they recorded, among others, with Sly & Robbie, a legendary rhythmic duo of musicians and producers active since the 70s, Big Youth, a Trenchtown native who lived the inception of deejaying and whose career peaked in the 70s with his first Jamaican number one hit “We Will Work It Out”, and Scientist, a Jamaican recording engineer, a protégé of King Tubby and those around him who defined the genre, who shot to fame in 1980s with his engineering talent shining on dub plates.

Peaceful through and through, STR8WYZ music is honest with itself and doesn’t struggle to hide hardships of the past, but rather draws positive power from them, as is desirable for maintaining a healthy spirit in life.
