Toronto meets New Orleans in this anthem of peace and love that's both timely and timeless! “Messengers” hearkens back to the spirit of Bob Marley, not only in its conscious, positive message, but also in its old-school, roots-reggae sound and production style: recorded as it was played, by a band, live, in the same room at the same time. “‘Messengers’ is a joint project intended to spread positive vibrations,” says Butcher. “Jay and I are trying to create unity in a time when others are trying to divide us".

"I can’t remember the last time a reggae tune grabbed me like this one did. There's an honest warmth to every single performance on this track- and Jay Douglas' vocals are simply otherworldly"- Adam Carter CBC Radio

"With Messengers, Butcher and Douglas serve up a mess of rice and peas with a big dollop of gumbo and a splash of holy water. A delicious mash up of bright funky brass over a steady rockin' groove infused with a whole lot of soul." Dave O Rama CHLY FM

We are the messengers of peace and love
We are the children of the most high

Life is a journey for each and everyone
Time and tide will change and so does man
The laws of the universe will set us free
Remember truths and rights that's the way to live

We're everyday people with so much to give
The love we sow our children shall reap
Rise above hate and fear don't be no CHUMP
We can build a bridge with peace and love

We are the messengers of peace and love
We are the children of the most high
