Hailing from Brooklyn New York, 3 brothers led by their father Courtney Panton Sr, who also plays bass on stage with the group call themselves "NEW KINGSTON". Together they incorporate R&B, Hip-Hop and Jazz with their heritage genre Reggae to form their sound. They have released: two full-length albums, In The Streets (2010) featuring Collie Buddz, & Mr. Vegas and Kingston University (2012) featuring J. Boog

Fall of 2013 saw New Kingston cross the United States on their first major solo tour. Joining the band on their "Madd Tour 2013," will be Indubious, Thrive, & Spread The Dub on select dates. Also will be supporting SOJA, Easy Star All-Stars & John Brown's Body on select dates. The tour started in Austin, TX heading all the way West then back east ending in Washington D.C.

Formed in 2006 in the basement of their Brooklyn home before they took to the outside world, brothers Tahir (keys), Courtney Jr. (drums) & Stephen (guitar) jammed over and over to Bob Marley, Earth Wind & Fire, Dennis Brown, Michael Jackson, The Whispers and many more until it sounded right to Courtney Panton Sr. He wanted their vocabulary of music to be very eclectic before they hit a stage! "If you ask New Kingston if we still know all those songs, the answer is yes lol" says drummer Courtney Jr. "But they were all favorites that we loved and forever listened to"

Afterwards, they have performed to other basements and backyards around town to clubs to Festivals worldwide such as; California Roots Festival, Monterey Bay Reggae Festival, Reggae On The River, Summer Jam Germany, Uppsala Reggae Festival and many more.... Starting a heavy touring cycle supporting Reggae stars such as Collie Buddz, The Green, Soja, Beres Hammond and much more... "Only thing left to come is more touring and more music" says keyboardist Tahir

New Kingston promotes through their music and their live show Family, Love and Harmony. "One Love" from NK
